Lenovo has announced that their latest generation of Lenovo Legion PCs will be coming to Malaysia. The 2020 lineup will consist of the Legion 5 (AMD), Legion 5i, Legion 5Pi, Legion 7i, Legion Tower 5i and IdeaPad Gaming 3i.
Lenovo Legion 2020 lineup will feature a series of innovations such as:
- Lenovo Legion TrueStrike Keyboard – Precision crafted to deliver 100 per cent anti-ghosting, sub-millisecond response times, and ‘soft-landing’ switches resulting in hair-trigger accuracy. The keyboard layout is ideal for gaming with full-sized keys and num pads, and optional 4-zone RGB lighting. Built for withstanding heavy long last use, Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboards feature an anti-oil coating to resist abrasion.
- Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 – Synergy of hardware and software that promotes better airflow, lower system temperatures to keep your Lenovo Legion laptop cool and quiet. Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 features Dual Burn, which pushes the CPU and GPU to their in-game limits so that gamers can experience more predictable frames per second (FPS) without thermal throttling. The devices stay cool to the touch via an optimized cooling system of heat sinks that dissipate more heat away from the motherboard.
- 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. It will switch between the use of the Integrated Graphic Processing Unit (found on the CPU) for more battery life, to the discrete NVIDIA GPU for higher frames per second. All this happens without a need to reboot the machine. If gamers want to manually disable their discrete GPU for longer battery life, they can do so 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. Upshift to Performance Mode to turbo-charge past the competition with higher CPU voltage and higher FPS. When streaming esports, downshift into Quiet Mode to lower battery drain and fan noise. Or enable Balanced Mode for automatic adjustments based on which apps are open. Other power-enhancing features include Rapid Charge Pro (from 0 to 50 per cent battery in 30 minutes) and battery sip feature (instinctively releases power in small doses for more battery life consistency).
- Brilliant Displays – Lenovo Legion makes the most of its display panel’s capabilities through Dolby Vision which offers deeper blacks and brighter whites without washing out colour or contrast. The laptops offer panels of up to 240hz refresh rates at under 1ms response times for ultra-smooth cinematics without screen tearing. The new Lenovo Legion laptops offer High Dynamic Range (HDR) on selected panels with at least 300nits of brightness, so that dramatic shadowed scenes with high levels of black tones are reproduced vividly with more depth; 100 percent sRGB color accurate panels also offer life-like visuals.
