The Legion X60 Intel lineup consists of the IdeaPad Gaming 3i, Lenovo Legion 5i and 5i Pro and Lenovo Legion 7i. All of these devices are built on the brand’s combination of engineering and industrial design, and backed by the Lenovo Legion Coldfront 3.0 thermals and multiple sensors on the hardware that predict the system’s thermal curve for hours of gaming with zero throttling.
The thermal solution is bolstered by an expanded the copper heat sink system with up to 82 percent more thermal fin area gen-to-gen, and drilled holes on the bottom cover and under the keyboard. To complete the look, the Lenovo Legion TrueStrike specialized gaming keyboard with optional RGB backlight now has a more mechanical feel on top of faster millisecond input speeds, anti-ghosting, and soft-landing switches.
The Legion Edge feature from Lenovo Vantage also gets amplified with a new one-click overclock support for both the CPU and GPU, allowing users to achieve peak framerates and reduce in-game lag. Meanwhile, overclocking PC performance via Thermal Design Power for the CPU and GPU is handled by Lenovo gaming exclusive Legion AI Engine.
The new Legion devices are equipped with 11th Generation Intel Core H-Series processors paired with NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs, combining the ultraportable horsepower for gaming and content creation of the next generation mobile processors and the elevated graphics brought by Ray Tracing 2.0.
