Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming

They’re here. The latest wave of Lenovo Legion Gaming Gear and Laptops has made landfall, equipping gamers with a smarter class of gear from our unique brand of uncompromised engineering and industrial design, and delivering the edge needed to dominate today’s virtual battle arenas and esports stadiums.

Representing a leap in the modern gameplay experience, the new Lenovo Legion generation is now fitted with game-inspired improvements such as our beloved keyboard technologies now in the Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboard; the advanced thermal efficiencies of Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0; battery lifespans that have been extended via Hybrid Mode, NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus11 and Rapid Charge Pro14; as well as the world-class immersive displays optimized by Dolby Vision® and OverDrive Support with optional 240Hz refresh rates for near-instantaneous in-game responses at under 1ms.

Powering this exciting new suite of advancements is the latest 10th Gen Intel® Core™ H-Series or AMD Ryzen™ 4000 Series mobile processors, and up to the recently announced NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 1650 Ti and RTX 2080 SUPER™ GPUs with Max-Q Design. With higher clock speeds and new levels of realism, the next-gen Lenovo Legion gaming PC portfolio is even more stylish on the outside and savage on the inside.

The 2020 lineup features the Lenovo Legion Laptops, and the Lenovo IdeaPad™ Gaming for entry-level gaming. These new gaming PCs deliver on all fronts with polished aesthetics and high-octane hardware, software, services, and payload performance features for a high-performance, immersive experience.

Ascending Fresh Plateaus in Gaming

This latest Lenovo Legion cohort offers a game-changing suite of features that take users to a higher realm of performance. We’ve further optimized refined technologies such as the Lenovo Legion TrueStrike Keyboard, for instance, for professional gameplay and typing productivity. Inspired by Lenovo’s distinguished pedigree of keyboards characterized by snappy actuation, satisfying click-feel, and superior key travel via its second transition curve design, the Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboards offer a gaming experience that’s touch-sensitive and tangible. 100 percent anti-ghosting, sub-millisecond response times, and ‘soft-landing’ switches that mimic deep keystrokes at the same force actuation level also combine to achieve uncanny precision.

And now, gamers can wring every ounce of performance out of their rigs through the next-generation thermal efficiencies of the Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0. Marking a new era in thermal management, Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 represents an improved synergy of hardware and software that promotes better airflow, lower system temperatures, while keeping your Lenovo Legion laptop cool, quiet and slim. The advanced system now features Dual Burn support, which pushes the CPU and GPU to their in-game limits so that gamers can experience more predictable FPS (frames per second) without the need for thermal throttling. Meanwhile, these Lenovo Legion devices stay cool to the touch despite sustaining top speeds via an optimal cooling system design of tactically placed heat sinks that dissipate more heat away from the motherboard. Also integrated into the Lenovo Legion 7i and Lenovo Legion Y740Si are Vapor Chamber Cooling Systems to dispel heat as dual liquid crystal polymer fan systems cycle air with chilling efficiency. Finally, a multipoint sensor array works to cool down key components in anticipation of intense gameplay for a cooler and quieter experience.

Equally as important for gamers is a battery, and that’s where Lenovo Legion truly over-indexes, integrating smarter power features to boost battery life and execute the whisper-quiet operation. As part of Lenovo Vantage software, Hybrid Mode prolongs battery life by letting users manually disable their dedicated graphics processor when it’s not needed. Advanced Optimus11, designed in collaboration with NVIDIA for select devices, also boosts battery life considerably by dynamically switching from the Integrated Graphics Processing Unit (iGPU) for more battery life, to the discrete NVIDIA GPU (dGPU) for higher FPS. Lenovo Q-Control 3.0 also lets users switch between three system voltage and fan speeds (Quiet, Balanced, Performance). Other power-enhancing features include Rapid Charge Pro (from 0 to 50 percent battery in 30 minutes)14 and a battery sip feature (instinctively releases power in small doses for more battery life consistency).

And as always, Lenovo Legion machines excel at capturing real-world immersion through its brilliant displays. This generation of Lenovo Legion makes the most of your display panel’s capabilities through Dolby Vision, which offers deeper blacks and brighter whites without washing out color and contrast, while up to 240hz refresh rates at under 1ms response times are engineered for ultra-smooth cinematics without screen tearing or stuttering. New Lenovo Legion laptops with at least 300 nits of panel brightness or more can now achieve High Dynamic Range (HDR), so that even dramatic shadowed scenes in games and movies with high levels of black tones will show up vividly with more depth and dimension. Combined with 100 percent sRGB color accuracy, this results in truly life-like pictures.

Once again, Lenovo delivers a level of performance and immersion that keeps it the industry’s PC leader. All these new Lenovo Legion laptops plus the refreshed Lenovo Legion Y740Si laptop offer up to the latest 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series mobile processors for powerful performance. And for the first time in one of our gaming laptops, players can also opt for premium, high-performance AMD Ryzen 4000 H-Series Mobile Processors in the Lenovo Legion 5.3

What Gamers Want

Through the Lenovo Legion community, our gaming research panel, and influencer councils, gaming enthusiasts tell us they still want even more immersive experiences. Before crafting our next-generation products, Lenovo engineers, designers, and user experience teams dug deep into user insights derived from years of research and surveys to deliver more advanced, high-performance machines built to last through the night, and well into the future.

Among the thousands of global players surveyed by Lenovo, nearly half responded that they used their gaming PCs for everyday computing as well as gaming.4 Better graphics, processors, and memory options still secured top spots on their must-have list.4 A key conclusion was that how people game, with whom, on how many devices, and for how long, all factored heavily when choosing a PC. 4

These insights reaffirm that the hardware design cannot shout ‘gamer’ when people are taking their gaming laptops to work and beyond for activities like creating content, enjoying their favorite streams on Twitch™, or their favorite Apex Legends™ top plays compilation videos on YouTube™. When they do manage to squeeze in some hardcore gaming time with friends, it’s crucial that the experience in those precious playing hours blows them away. No matter the form factor, Lenovo has got gamers covered with powerhouse Windows 10 PCs that are packed with customer-inspired innovations, including better keyboards, more processor choices, larger one-piece trackpad, and improved webcam placement, all supported by smarter thermals to keep things cool when the competition heats up.

When it’s time for fun, shift into the preferred performance mode by pressing your Fn+Q keys to trigger Lenovo Q-Control 2.0 and simply connect to Lenovo Legion BoostStation, the optional external eGPU companion accessory for high FPS.

Pro-tuned Performance

Soup up in-game performance even more with improved Lenovo Q-Control 3.0, now available on the new Lenovo Legion 7i, 5Pi, 5i1, and 5 laptops and on the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i1 desktop. Upshift to Performance Mode to turbo-charge past the competition with higher CPU voltage and higher FPS. Then, while streaming eSports highlight reels, downshift into Quiet Mode to lower battery drain and fan noise, or set it and forget it by enabling Balanced Mode for automatic adjustments based on which apps are open.

Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 also boosts performance with the integrated Vapor Chamber and updated thermal sensor array. A dual-fan system of 73 liquid-crystal polymer fan blades enhances four dedicated thermal channels to cycle air at top speeds. Dual Burn Support also pushes the CPU and GPU together for max performance in-game.

Whether they’re gaming or not, end-users seek might and mobility from their machines. While at work or in class, users can also leverage their PC’s Lenovo Vantage software to manually disable their dedicated graphics card or G-SYNC via Hybrid Mode for a bump in battery life on the go. Still not satisfied with the cumbersome reboot experience required by users to enact this signal change to their processors, Lenovo engineers worked with the team at NVIDIA to develop a more seamless, automatic way for gamers to better manage their integrated graphics through Advanced Optimus11.

Select Lenovo Legion gaming PCs will be first to feature the new Advanced Optimus11 which draws on physical components of your dedicated NVIDIA graphics card to intuitively detect which of your system’s graphics sources is best suited to power the application open on your screen. Whether playing a high-demanding game or being productive at work, Advanced Optimus11 switches back and forth from integrated (for light workloads) and discrete graphics to dramatically extend battery life9 and without the added hassle of a reboot for max framerates when gaming.
