Latest Lenovo Legion gaming PCs feature cooler thermals, extended battery life and keyboard improvements review
The latest wave of Lenovo Legion PCs equips players with improvements like cooler thermals, keyboard enhancements and extended battery life.
The hottest 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series or AMD Ryzen 4000 Series mobile chips power this lineup, and up into the newly announced NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and RTX 2080 SUPER GPUs using Max-Q Design deliver higher clock speeds and new levels of realistic images.
The 2020 lineup comprises the Lenovo Legion 7i, Lenovo Legion 5i, the Lenovo Legion 5 as well as the Lenovo IdeaPad Gambling 3i for entry-level gambling. Additionally, there are two new towers: Lenovo Legion Tower 5i and IdeaCentre Gaming 5i.
In competitive gaming, the way keyboards sense and their design can make a massive difference. The Lenovo Legion TrueStrike computer keyboard includes 100 percent anti-ghosting, sub-millisecond response times and soft-landing switches, resulting in hair-trigger precision and the sense of superior key travel via its next transition curve layout –so players experience a more immersive gaming experience.
Another thing that can boost performance: innovative thermal efficiencies. Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 provides an improved synergy of hardware and applications that boosts better airflow and reduced system temperatures. The innovative system currently features Double Burn support, which pushes the CPU and GPU for their in-game limitations so that players can experience more predictable FPS (frames per second) without the need for thermal throttling. These Lenovo Legion devices stay cool to the touch although keeping top rates, thanks to tactically put heat sinks which exude heat away from the motherboard.
For a bulge in battery life on the go, Lenovo Vantage applications can manually disable the dedicated graphics card or G-SYNC via Hybrid Mode. Lenovo engineers worked with the group in NVIDIA to create a more eloquent, automatic method for players to better manage their integrated images through Advanced Optimus, which debuts on select Lenovo Legion gambling PCs.
Advanced Optimus draws on physical components of a gamer’s committed NVIDIA graphics card to detect which of their system’s graphics sources is best suited to power the application open on the monitor. It switches back and forth from incorporated (for mild workloads) and discrete graphics to dramatically prolong battery life  without the added hassle of a reboot to get max framerates when gaming.
Soup up in-game performance much more with enhanced Lenovo Q-Control 3.0. Upshift into Performance Mode into turbo-charge past the competition with greater CPU voltage and higher FPS. Then, whilst streaming eSports highlight reels, downshift into Silent Mode to lower battery drain and fan noise, or set it and forget it by enabling Balanced Mode for automatic adjustments according to which apps are open.
