Recently we have seen a lot of OEMs using the latest Ryzen 4000 processors in their laptops and Lenovo will be the next one. The new Renoir APUs are getting popular these days as they are offering better performance for the price and the 7nm architecture is gaining trust among users as well.
The leaks on the Weibo forums via quite a few promotional pictures do reveal some of the features of the new Lenovo Legion laptops as well as differences compared to the existing Intel-powered variants.
The Lenovo Legion R7000 / R7000P will be the alleged gaming laptops which will be powered by the Renoir APUs up to the Ryzen 7 4800H.
Few of the key specs of the laptops leaked so far:
- Display: 120 Hz displays with 45% NTSC color reproduction with response time/ 60 Hz 72% NTSC/ 144 Hz 72% NTSC variants with low response times
- DDR4-3200 RAM options instead of DDR4-2933 on Intel ones
- up to 8 core / 16 thread AMD Ryzen 7 4800H
- discrete NVIDIA GPUs
- 80Wh+ battery along with 230 W charger
Other features that are rumoured include improved cooling, redesigned rubber feet as well a new case material that does not attract fingerprints that much. These laptops will feature Fn+Q performance modes with tri-colour indicator and surprisingly feature two M.2 NVMe slots instead of one.
It is said that there’ll be 3 designs to choose from including one with edge RGB lighting and another with the Y-shaped logo on the lid. Also as these laptops will come integrated with the latest NVIDIA GPUs so they’ll include the exclusive Advanced Optimus battery saver mode, to switch between iGPU and dGPU to save some battery life.
The laptops are also rumored to be 200g heavier and 1mm thicker than the Intel Legion laptops. Also, the micro Display Port will be replaced by one USB-A port, and some variants will be devoid of webcam which is quite strange. There’s no words or rumors of the pricing of these laptops but Lenovo will soon launch these laptops in the coming weeks itself.
