Lenovo is introducing its flagship gaming laptop, the Lenovo Legion 9i, which boasts a groundbreaking 16-inch display and an innovative self-contained liquid-cooling system, setting a new standard for gaming laptops worldwide. This powerful device is tailor-made for gamers and content creators with demanding graphics-intensive tasks, providing them with a complete portable studio. The Lenovo Legion 9i serves as the pinnacle of the Lenovo Legion product range, complementing the Lenovo Legion Pro series aimed at competitive gamers, the Lenovo Legion Slim series designed for those who prioritize mobility, and a range of Lenovo Legion displays and peripherals.
The Lenovo Legion 9i sets a new standard for high-performance luxury in the gaming laptop arena. Featuring the formidable 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13980HX processor, a choice of up to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, and either an impressive 64GB Overclocked 5600Mhz Dual Channel DDR5 RAM or an exceptionally fast 32GB Overclocked 6400Mhz DDR5 Dual Channel RAM, this laptop boasts extraordinary processing capabilities. However, it’s the way these processors are harnessed that truly unleashes the immense power of the Lenovo Legion 9i.
The Lenovo Legion 9i introduces an innovative liquid-cooling system called Legion Coldfront, a pioneering feature for a 16-inch gaming laptop. Despite its advanced cooling technology, it manages to maintain a lightweight profile at just 5.64lbs. This cutting-edge system, developed in collaboration with Cooler Master, circulates cooling liquid over the GPU VRAM to effectively manage heat during intense gaming sessions. It activates when the GPU reaches 84°C, efficiently bringing down the temperature. In combination with the AI-optimized triple-fan air-cooling system featuring an impressive 6,333 individual intake vents, the Lenovo Legion 9i remains cool even during the most demanding gaming and content creation tasks.
To accommodate the additional weight of the custom liquid-cooling system, Lenovo’s engineers devised an ingenious solution—a novel A-cover constructed from forged carbon chips. This not only reduces weight but also results in a distinctive forged carbon chip pattern on the A-cover of each Lenovo Legion 9i, making each unit unique.
The Lenovo Legion 9i harnesses its enhanced performance capabilities through a stunning Lenovo PureSight 3.2K Mini-LED 16:10 Display, featuring a variable refresh rate of 165Hz. This exceptional display offers flexibility to creators, allowing them to seamlessly switch between DCI-P3 and sRGB color spaces, thanks to the included X-Rite software and per-unit factory color calibration. With a remarkable 94% screen-to-body ratio, the Mini-LED display delivers breathtakingly expansive and crystal-clear visuals, catering to the preferences of both gamers and content creators. Moreover, with up to 2TB of PCIe (Gen 4) SSD storage2, there is ample space to fully immerse oneself in a multitude of visually stunning games and experiences.
Anticipated to hit the market in October 2023, the Lenovo Legion 9i featuring an Intel processor will be ready for purchase, with prices starting at $4,399. This high-performance gaming laptop promises to offer an impressive blend of power and innovation to gaming enthusiasts and professionals alike, providing a compelling option for those seeking top-tier gaming experiences.
