Lenovo is introducing a bunch of new gaming PCs, and announcing availability on already-announced models. One thing that all of them have in common is that they’re all powered by the latest AMD Ryzen processors, and there isn’t a single Intel chip to be seen.
Lenovo introduced the Legion 5 15 and 17 back in April, and now it comes with up to an AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor, and up to Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics. The 15.6- or 17.3-inch FHD screen comes with a 144Hz refresh rate, and you can get it with up to 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 memory and a 1TB PCIe SSD. They’ll be available in August and September for the 15- and 17-inch versions, starting at $1,019.99 and $1,089.99, respectively.
There’s also the new Legion 5P, which has the same CPU, GPU, and display options, although you can configure it with up to 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 memory. It also has Harman Kardon speakers that are tuned with Dolby Atmos for better audio quality. It’s thinner and lighter too, at under an inch thick and weighing 5.1 pounds. The Legion 5P isn’t coming to North America like the Legion 5 is.
In the entry-level gaming department, there’s the IdeaPad Gaming 3. It’s also getting the Ryzen 7 4800H treatment, with up to a GTX 1650 Ti GPU and a 120Hz 15.6-inch screen. It has Lenovo’s Q-Control 3.0 for Intelligent Cooling, and there’s a blue backlit keyboard. It’s coming this month, starting at $659.99.
There are also a couple of desktop PCs on the way, including the Legion Tower 5. This one packs up to an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 16-core processor with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER GPU. You can get it with dual 1TB PCIe SSDs, dual 2TB HDDs, and up to 128GB 3200MHz DDR4 memory. It’s coming in October, starting at $829.99.
Finally, Lenovo is introducing a new IdeaCentre Gaming 5, which is more entry-level with a Ryzen 7 3700X and an RTX 2060 GPU. It’s not coming to the United States.
