Lenovo’s Legion range, consisting of laptops and gaming desktops, is being updated. Two new laptops are coming for the biggest gamers: the Lenovo Legion 5i and Legion 7i. These two teams share features, such as the new smart consumption mode. But they also differ in terms of power: the 7i model is the most complete, but also the most expensive. We tell you all the details.
This new team arrives with new Intel processors, the 10th generation H series. These new chips come with a latest generation i9 10980HK processor and up to 5Ghz as the most powerful option, and an i5 10300H as the minimum variant. Lenovo has not confirmed what options it will add to this Legion 7i, but considering that it is a gaming computer, it is likely that they are betting on the i7 10750H. In addition, the team has a maximum version of Nvidia RTX 2080 Super Max Q GPU. We will also have different RAM memory configurations: from 8 GB to 32 GB DDR4. The SSD up to 512 GB with the possibility of HDD with 1 or 2 TB.

The Legion 7i has a very interesting feature, called ‘Adavence Optimus’, for energy saving. It is an intelligent consumption mode that switch from Nvidia GPU to integrated CPU when the equipment detects that not so much performance is necessary. In this way, if you are playing a game that requires a lot of power, the screen will be calibrated with the graphics of the GPU. But if you are performing less demanding tasks, it will switch to the CPU.
This equipment has a 17-inch IPS panel with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). The display features refresh rates of up to 144 Hz. a brightness of 300 nits. In the physical aspect there are no great changes with respect to the previous generation. It has different air outlets to dissipate heat. An interesting detail is that these exits, as well as the side areas are illuminated through LEDS, or that gives it a much more suitable aesthetic for gaming. Keyboard improvements are not expected.
