Lenovo just released their entirely new Lenovo Legion PCs in Malaysia. Powered by Intel and AMD flavours, the 2020 lineup features the Legion 5 (AMD), Legion 5i, Legion 5Pi, Legion 7i, Legion Tower 5i and IdeaPad Gaming 3i.
Claimed to be stylish on the outside, savage on the inside, Lenovo’s new gaming systems promises to provide gamers with a smarter class of gear with its unique blend of uncompromised engineering and industrial design.
Lenovo Legion – New Features
Lenovo Legion TrueStrike Keyboard
Lenovo’s Legion TrueStrike keyboard features 100% anti-ghosting on all keys, sub-millisecond response times, and ‘soft-landing’ switches resulting in hair-trigger accuracy. Some of the laptops also have 4-zone RGB lighting, and these TrueStrike keyboards have an anti-oil coating to resist abrasion.
Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0
Lenovo’s Legion Coldfront 2.0 uses a feature called Dual Burn, which will push the CPU and GPU to their in-game limits so gamers can experience higher fps without thermal throttling. It is a synergy of hardware and software to allow better airflow, lower system temperatures to keep your Lenovo laptop cool and quiet.
Improved Battery Life
Lenovo Legion gaming PCs will be first to feature the new Advanced Optimus designed in collaboration with NVIDIA to boost battery life. This is a feature that dynamically switches between the integrated GPU (for better battery life) and the discrete Nvidia GPU (for higher fps). You can actually turn this off by using Lenovo Vantage software’s Hybrid Mode.
Lenovo Q-Control 3.0 also lets users switch between three settings for system voltage and fan speeds – Performance, Quiet, and Balanced.
The Lenovo Legion laptops also feature Rapid Charge Pro (from 0 to 50 percent battery in 30 minutes) and battery sip feature (instinctively releases power in small doses for more battery life consistency).
Lenovo Legion laptops also support Dolby Vision, which provides deeper blacks and brighter whites without colour or contrast wash out. There are up to 240Hz panels at under 1ms response times for you to choose from. Some of these panels even have High Dynamic Range (HDR) on them, with at least 300 nits of brightness. They also cover 100% of the sRGB colour gamut.
Lenovo Legion 5i and Lenovo Legion 5
The Lenovo Legion 5i and Lenovo Legion 5 are the company’s mainstream Windows 10 gaming laptops that offer several configuration options and next-level NVIDIA GeForce graphics.
All models across the Lenovo Legion 5i and 5 families feature Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 thermal management, Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboard, and improved battery life (up to 8 hours) using technologies like Advanced Optimus and Hybrid Mode.
