Lenovo Legion 5: Minimal Meets Mighty

June 16, 2021

For any PC gamer, a device which guarantees ultra-fast speed and responsiveness is key to outpacing the competition. But in today’s environment, where you also want the ability to game from anywhere, it’s also crucial to have portability and looks that match. Lenovo’s Legion 5 PC with AMD Ryzen 4000 series processors balances the best of both worlds, delivering ultimate gaming immersion while embodying a refined style.
Gone are the days of bulky and loud looking PCs – the Legion 5 has a minimalist design, with a light-refracting hinge and logo finish for a more understated appearance. It’s also practical, encased with an anti-smudge polymer material to keep it always looking at its best. The classic Phantom Black body is perfect for anyone who needs a device that is equally appropriate in a gaming tournament, as for use at university or the office.
As every gaming fanatic knows, more cores equals accelerated performance. With the highest number of cores available for ultrathin laptops, the AMD Ryzen 4000 Series chip lets you game with accelerated performance and with greater speed and precision than ever before. To be precise, inside the Legion 5, you’ll find the AMD Ryzen 7 4800H mobile processor, it’s eight-core performance and multi-threading abilities ensuring a new dimension of power. This proves ideal whether multitasking and managing a heavy workload or playing power-intensive games.
Taking things a step further, the Legion 5 is also a certified GeForce RTX gaming PC. Powered by NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and the impressive RTX platform, the Legion 5 assures not only fast and quiet performance, but also benefits such as real-time ray tracing and enhanced graphics with the use of AI.
Lenovo regularly conducts research with gamers directly, to understand gaps in the market and how new PCs can be designed to better address common pain points. Findings include the need for better thermal cooling, more immersive displays, improved keyboard response and boosted power. To address this, the Legion 5 utilizes Lenovo’s Legion Coldfront 2.0 system to cool and dissipate heat via a dual-channel thermal mechanism. To get technical, 67 liquid crystal polymer-coated fan blades and dedicated copper heat pipes do the work! For ultimate personalization, the Legion 5 even comes with the addition of Q Control 3.0, allowing you to manually select between Quiet, Balance and Performance thermal modes.
When competing in eSports, immersive visuals and an expansive soundstage are integral to the experience. The Legion 5 has a crisp FHD IPS display and fast refresh rates of up to 240Hz with 3ms response times. The experience comes full circle with Dolby Vision and up to 100% sRGB, paired with a 2W Harman Kardon speaker system and Dolby Atmos headphone support for three-dimensional sound.
To enhance its offering further, the Lenovo Legion also comes with a TrueStrike keyboard, featuring 100% anti-ghosting and soft-landing switches for deeper strokes with equal force to keep one step ahead. The layout of the keyboard also includes dedicated media keys, a number pad, larger arrow keys and one-piece trackpad brought to life in white or an optional 4-Zone RGB backlight variant.
To keep gamers powered throughout the day, the Legion 5 boasts all-day battery life and a slim power adapter for greater portability. With Lenovo’s Rapid Charge Pro technology integrated, when you do need to give the Legion 5 a quick boost of power, it gets you from 0 to 50% in under 30 minutes. When focusing on everyday tasks which don’t require the processing oomph of a dedicated graphics card and when battery life is more important, Hybrid Mode lets you switch to integrated graphics. Meaning you get the best of both worlds—top performance when you need it, and extended battery life when you don’t.
The Lenovo Legion 5 with AMD Ryzen 7 is now available at Amazon.ae, starting from 5,689 AED.
