Lenovo updated its Legion gaming computer offering during CES 2021. Its new notebooks continue to use artificial intelligence in different elements to make machine performance more effective. The Coldfront 3.0 cooling system also promises an 18% increase in air circulation compared to its previous generation, helping to manage both heat and noise generated by its fans. And with that, there are energy savings with a direct impact on the life of your batteries, promises the brand.
The brand says it has multiple sensors placed on the CPU, GPU, on the side and rear thermal outputs, but also on the SSD and memories to collect temperature information and act in real time. Lenovo introduces new Legion 7 models with a 16-inch screen, the same size as the Legion 15 Pro, both QHD at 165 Hz. The Legion Slim 7 has a 15 inch screen and the Legion 5 will have two screen sizes yet to be revealed.

The line promises framerate improvements in AAA games through artificial intelligence, which through a click activates the machine’s CPU and GPU overclocking. The AI system checks the game and crosses with its database, activating the most appropriate settings to increase the FPS. Lenovo’s machines will be powered by new processors from Intel and AMD, yet to be announced. They also promise 7.1 surround sound systems calibrated by SteelSeries Nahimic Audio.
Also compared to the Lenovo Legion 7, the notebook offers a 100% RGB color gamut on its 16 inches of screen and 16:10 aspect ratio (for a resolution of 2560×1600), increasing the display area by 90% by 11% % in the chassis ratio. Also in relation to the screen, the notebook uses NVidia’s G-Sync technology, has models up to 500 nits of brightness, IPS technology with the option of VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification and 165 Hz refreshing. It also has TÜV Rheinland certification in reducing lights blue.
Looking to be one of the thinnest gaming notebooks on the market equipped with RTX and a 15.6-inch screen at 4K, the Legion Slim 7 will also be equipped with the new AMD Ryzen processor. Alternatively, you can choose a 60 Hz IPS screen with 1080p resolution.
The computer, with a chassis made of magnesium and aluminum, weighs 1.9 kg. It has a 71 WHr battery and fast charging support. Users can choose between the white backlit keyboard or the Corsair iCUE RGB. The power button has a biometric fingerprint sensor and at the top of the screen is a 720p webcam with a privacy tab.
For eSports fans, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro will receive updates for NVidia RTX AMD and GPU processors. The model has a 500 nits IPS screen, 165 Hz and 3 ms response, 100% sRGB compatible and 16 inches with a resolution of 2560×1600. This model took a makeover in its design, now presenting a gray chassis or optionally a white version. The rear has been enlarged for greater air circulation and the touchpad has also grown. The computer supports NVidia’s Dolby vision and G-Sync.
The Lenovo Legion 5 bets on a minimalist chassis and offers options of 15 and 17 inches. The notebook has a phantom blue color with white backlight. The 17-inch IPS screen offers 1080p and 144 Hz images, while the 15-inch day promises images at 165 Hz at the same resolution. Both models will be equipped with the latest CPU and GPU from AMD and NVidia.
