Lenovo Legion 7i, 5i debut with 10th Gen Intel, GeForce RTX 2080 Super

Sleeker, more powerful Lenovo Legion gaming notebooks are heading your way. The next-generation Lenovo Legion 7i and Lenovo Legion 5i rock the latest 10th Gen Intel H-Series mobile processor as well as new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPU with Max-Q Design.

Both the Lenovo Legion 7i and 5i come loaded with up to 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series chips with the 7i backed by the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPU with Max-Q design. The Lenovo Legion 5i meanwhile will be in strictly “no slouch” territory, packing up to RTX 2060 GPU.

The new gaming lappies will support NVIDIA G-Sync for smooth, tear-free gameplay.

The duo will also be the first to feature the new NVIDIA Advanced Optimus technology for improved battery efficiency. The technology, co-developed with NVIDIA, detects GPU workloads and automatically connects either the NVIDIA GPU (for demanding workloads like gaming) or the iGPU (for light workloads) to the display. This intelligent, dynamic management helps to preserve and optimise battery life when light workload applications are running. When it’s time for AAA gaming, it turns it up for maximum performance and framerates.

Lenovo has not revealed further details or specs of the two new gaming notebooks and no definitive release date has been announced.
