Gamers rejoice! Lenovo is going all out, unveiling four new models in its acclaimed Legion lineup of gaming laptops at CES 2021, including the world’s first 16″ QHD 16:10 gaming laptops, the Legion 7 (16” AMD) and Legion 5 Pro (16” AMD).

The new flagship Legion 7 laptop is clad in aerospace-grade aluminum. It sports the latest mobile processors for PC gamers — up to the latest AMD Ryzen 9 5900H Mobile Processors and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 GPUs.

CES 2021 announcements

Apart from the Legion 7 and Legion 5 Pro, Lenovo also announced at CES 2021 the Legion Slim 7 (15” AMD) and Legion 5 (15” and 17” AMD).

Available from February 2021, the new Legion lineup is packed with features to push the boundaries of laptop gaming.

Legion’s new 2021 laptops are among the first to feature the next-gen AMD Ryzen 5000 H-series Mobile Processors. The new Legion lineup also features the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series Laptop GPUs for gamers and creators.

Using artificial intelligence, Legion is forging ahead of the gaming industry to extract every ounce of performance from next-generation processors.

Some games require more CPU power, and others require more GPU power. The Legion AI Engine combines best-in-class hardware, software, and machine learning that work together to overclock the PC’s performance by routing Thermal Design Power between the CPU and GPU to achieve maximum frames per second in different games.

Meanwhile, maximum performance can only be achieved with world-class thermal management. Players can now blast through many hours of gaming at max clock speeds with zero throttling thanks to the Coldfront 3.0 thermal management system.

Packing an intelligent intake system that features turbo-charged dual-fans and quad-channel exhausts with vapor chamber technology (selected models), the Legion laptops now move higher volumes of air through components to dissipate heat rapidly. This massive cooling process is further enhanced with the use of highly efficient thermal conduction materials.
