From its inception, Lenovo™ Legion wanted to make the modern gaming experience immersive, as well as more inclusive. At CES® 2022, Lenovo Legion™ once again delivers on its pursuit of unyielding play and productivity to gamers of every generation and content creators, who can now all universally enjoy premium entertainment and play from home battle stations, dorms, esports arenas – or practically anywhere, and look good doing it too.
Lenovo’s first batch of 2022 battle-ready PCs, monitors, accessories and gamer-focused software and services unveiled today, which include the powerful 16-inch Lenovo Legion 5i Pro and Lenovo Legion 5 Pro laptops and the polished 15-inch Lenovo Legion 5i and Lenovo Legion 5 laptops. The new gaming laptops come available with Windows 11 gaming performance, next-gen AMD Ryzen™ processors, or latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors and up to latest fully powered NVIDIA GeForce RTX Laptop GPUs.
Inspired by gamer research, these new devices celebrate ‘magical minimalism’ design and denote a leap towards a contemporary aesthetic with purposeful detailing like an uncluttered wordmark, expressive venting, and immersive lighting. A top-placed camera bump with eShutter kill switch and rear port protection convey a sleek look of power and performance that helps to create a more inclusive experience focused on player enjoyment and winning, not labels. Paired with exclusives beloved by Legion fans such as the advanced thermals of next-level Legion Coldfront 4.0, the hair-trigger speeds and improved ergonomics of Legion TrueStrike keyboard, and optimized tuning via Lenovo Vantage for gaming.
Rounding out this impressive lineup is the low-latency and stylish Lenovo Legion Y25-30 Monitor for serious gamers looking for an edge, and two more Eyesafe® certified monitors, the Lenovo G27qe-20 and Lenovo G24qe-20, offering entry-level players natural low blue light and sharp versatility. With such expertly-crafted gaming machines bringing max performance to esports, it’s no wonder Lenovo Legion is the official PC and monitor for the Apex Legends™ Global Series. Still, even the best hardware can be made better with the right software; introducing Legion Arena, the new on-device application from Lenovo that’s giving gamers an easy way to consolidate owned games from multiple platforms into one location as they search, launch and play games from across their entire library.
This is all part of Lenovo’s brighter vision of creating an ecosystem of smarter Lenovo Legion technology, engaging services, and connected software solutions with competitive gameplay at its heart, because when every second counts, it’s the experience that matters most.
Calibrated to Crush the Competition – the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro Series (16”, 7)
Everyone has to start somewhere; before a player gets their chance to kill it in the series, they’ve got to first level-up with a battle-tested laptop known for delivering elevated gaming performance that’s a notch above mainstream and designed to fit seamlessly into your life. Engineered to handle full-powered graphics and third-party tested for max performance, the esports-centric Lenovo Legion 5i Pro and Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is the world’s first 16-inch laptop series with a WQHD+ up to 240Hz adaptive refresh rate gaming display to help you rise in the ranks.
Tuned for esports, the device’s cooling system includes an updated fan system, larger exhaust area, and improved penta heat pipe layout that efficiently ushers air to lower skin temperatures. A copper block sits under the CPU as a heat sink to help dissipate heat created in hardcore battle sessions, and the fan blades on the Lenovo Legion laptops unveiled today are slimmer by up to 40 percent from the previous generation to help keep the system quieter. Legion Coldfront 4.0 now offers noise suppression as one of its new attributes thanks to a noise-insulated chassis.
Smarter noise canceling happens to also be a shared obsession with Nahimic® Audio by SteelSeries. Designed for hardcore gamers, Nahimic Audio on Lenovo Legion laptops delivers professional-level sound tuning and audio effects via a precise 10-band equalizer that lets gamers personalize their game’s sound frequencies. Adjusting each band helps the user highlight the sounds most important to them and their gameplay – like hearing in-game enemy footsteps clearly, while minimizing distractions. Delivering 2 x 2W stereo speaker system, PC gamers can also optimize the sounds around them for an immersive experience with Nahimic’s ‘easy surround’ feature designed to incorporate any Bluetooth® speaker to improve a player’s spatial awareness through sound.
