Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, Legion 7 Highlights
AMD Ryzen 5000 H-series Mobile Processors
The new Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 7 are among the first notebooks equipped with the AMD Ryzen 5000 H-series Mobile Processors. These are the only processors in the world to have 8 high-performance cores suited for ultra thin gaming notebooks.
They are powered by AMD’s new Zen 3 Core Architecture and the world’s most advanced x86 chip technology. The processors combine incredible efficiency, elite performance, and long-lasting battery life that will keep gamers playing more for years to come.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series GPUs
Accompanying the AMD Ryzen 5000 H-series Mobile Processors are the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series GPUs. They are designed to bring the ultimate gaming performance to users.
The graphics cards are jam-packed with new internals such as the award-winning NVIDIA Ampere architecture, 3rd Generation Ray Tracing Cores, 2nd Generation Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors. These give gamers and content creators the most realistic graphics ever along with cutting-edge AI to fine-tune art to the smallest detail.
Moreover, they feature NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 Technology that also uses AI to accelerate the laptop’s performance when playing games. Booting up Cyberpunk 2077 with DLSS Technology, for example, boosts performance by up to 60%.
Smarter Technology by Lenovo
The Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 7 come with the Lenovo Legion AI Engine. It currently supports the top-16 AAA games and enables them to be played as smoothly as ever. The engine combines the best-in-class hardware, software, and machine learning to overclock PC performance.
Upon booting up a game, the Legion AI Engine automatically detects and routs the most-ideal Thermal Design Power (TDP) settings to the CPU and GPU. This allows the device to achieve the maximum frames per second (FPS) in games. It also uses machine learning in other games to continuously tune gaming performance for maximum results.
Coldfront 3.0 Thermal Management System
The new Legion lineup also utilizes AI in the Coldfront 3.0 thermal management system. This keeps the temperature inside cooler as gaming action heats up. Coldfront 3.0 packs an intelligent intake system that allows for an increased airflow of up to 18% as compared to the last generation. This is achieved by using turbo-charged dual-fans and quad-channel exhausts with vapor chamber technology.
Together with the help of efficient thermal conduction materials, Coldfront 3.0 moves huge volumes of air through components to dissipate heat rapidly. It allows for optimized performance and all-day mobility with long-lasting battery life.
The world’s first 16” QHD gaming notebooks
Both the Legion 5 Pro and Legion 7 are the first gaming laptops in the world to come out with 16” Quad High Definition (QHD) displays. The displays serve a taller and clearer (2560 x 1600 resolution) 16:10 aspect ratio.
Combined with up to a 165Hz refresh rate, 100%sRGB, and 500 nits of brightness, gamers are treated to a cinematic-like experience. These greatly assist in competitive games. The larger display raises a gamer’s sightlines and provides a better field of view, so they’ll detect enemies faster.
Moreover, both displays of the Legion 5 Pro and Legion 7 have 3ms response times. They come out VESA DisplayHDR 400 Certified and with Dolby Vision and NVIDIA G-SYNC support.
The new Legion lineup’s Harman speakers are now optimized with Nahimic Audio. Designed for gamers, Nahimic gives a competitive edge with 360-degree audio. It comes with features such as Night Mode with smart volume reduction and Sound Tracker. The latter visually points out a sound’s source and direction in a game.
Nahimic Audio also enables crystal-clear video calls with its background noise suppression feature. It also comes with Sound Sharing that allows the streaming of audio from a PC to two different headsets without the need for audio adapters.
Lenovo’s upgraded Vantage software is also bringing the speed in the Legion 5, Legion 5 Pro, and Legion 7. They now come with the Vantage Smart Performance Services solution. This reduces PC downtime by scanning, detecting, and removing traces of spyware, malware, and adware. It also significantly reduces lag and latency issues while user play online multiplayer games. This is possible with its ability to fix network and access issues.
Aiding the Lenovo Vantage in enabling seamless play among the new devices is their 3-Year Premium Care warranty service. This is bundled together with the notebooks upon purchase. The service consists of solutions that provide an advanced and tailored level of care that reduces downtime, increases efficiency, and keeps customers moving. Premium Care offers 24/7 direct hotline to Specialized Senior Technicians, comprehensive hardware and software support, and an Annual PC Health Check.
