Lenovo made some big changes on their Legion gaming laptops this year. They released the Legion 7i and 7 laptops, and the lightweight Legion Slim 7 and 7i. The new Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 are classified the world’s most powerful 16-inch gaming laptops with the 16-inch QHD display upgrade. The Legion Slim 7i and 7 are Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest gaming laptops yet with a taller 16:10 display for when productivity meets play.
The new Lenovo Legion 7 series laptops exceed expectations with a number of innovation firsts that adapt to and balance the multi-dimensional needs of modern gamers and professional players. These new devices not only have the world’s largest battery capacity on a 16-inch gaming laptop, they also reign as the world’s first 16-inch gaming laptops with FHD webcams3 for better streaming, and as the first 16-inch WQXGA (2560×1600) gaming laptops. The Windows 11 laptops’ minimalist design, long battery life, and whisper-quiet artificial intelligence (A.I.) tuned thermals are purpose-built for those who want performance and mobility.
The Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 feature up to 12th Gen Intel Core HX Series or AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU (up to 175W TGP) or AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT mobile graphics, DDR5 memory, and Gen 4 PCIe SSD storage are all tuned for maximum performance via the Lenovo Legion A.I. Engine 2.0. This A.I. engine can predict fan curve, and balance GPU and CPU resource output in real time depending on each game to deliver its best performance. Its A.I. calibration can also intelligently boost the Lenovo Legion Cold-front 4.0 thermal system to cool down the GPU and CPU, while the laptop’s vapor chamber technology expands the boundaries of what’s possible in a gaming laptop for desktop-level performance CPUs, with up to 115W of thermal capacity without throttling. The thermals also include 67 percent thinner fan blades from the previous generation for improved air flow, phase-change thermal compound coating for faster heat transfer, larger surface area and sub-keyboard intake vents.
