The newest 2023 lineup of Lenovo Legion laptops, monitors, and accessories have been revealed at CES 2023, elevating the brand’s standard for PC gaming.

Making the Legion computers even more powerful is the Lenovo LA AI chip installed on the new Legion Pro 7, Pro 7i, Pro 5, and Pro 5i laptops.

Working with Lenovo Vantage, the Lenovo AI Engine+ deploys a software machine learning algorithm to optimize the system performance.

Depending on the model, users are guaranteed up to the latest 13th Gen Intel Core or Ryzen 9 processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX or AMD Radeon RX 7000 series graphics, and up to 240Hz refresh rate on PureSight gaming display screens.

As far as PCs are concerned, customers may enjoy the newly-unveiled Legion Tower 7i, Tower 5i, and Tower 5 desktops which come with up to 64GB of DDR5 memory and up to 6TB (3x 2TB) SSD storage, on top of the same options for processors and graphics.

Some bonuses when purchasing any of the following models include:

  • Windows 11 pre-installed
  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (3-month subscription)
  • Nahimic by SteelSeries audio
  • Legion Arena
  • Legion Ultimate Support

Extreme power, max cooling

Lenovo’s newest Legion Pro laptops also feature ColdFront 5.0 with Hybrid Thermals with up to 235W TDP. 

The hybrid thermals are an extra-wide Vapor Chamber that covers both CPU and GPU on the NVIDIA next-gen laptop GPUs.

CPUs are kept cool using liquid metal infusion, ensuring zero throttling, while heat gets expelled through exhaust vents.

This technology complements the Lenovo LA AI chip that powers Lenovo AI Engine+ for an extremely powerful performance.
