This morning, having spotted the Legion 5 Pro, a new leak of the mid-range Legion 5 gaming laptops have emerged. The reliable tipster @momomo_us has spotted multiple variants of the Lenovo Legion 5 with both AMD and Intel processors.
While most of the sport 17.3-inch displays, what’s more interesting is the specs offered at their respective prices. There are 5 variants spotted in the leak:
- Lenovo Legion 5i: 15.6-inch FHD, Core i5-11400H, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, GPU not specified, Windows 10 and Wi-Fi 6 – $908.94
- Lenovo Legion 5: 15.6-inch FHD, Ryzen 7 5800H, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650, Windows 10 and Wi-Fi 6 – $787.16
- Lenovo Legion 5i: 17.3-inch FHD, Core i7-11800H, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060, Windows 10 and Wi-Fi 6 – $903.82
- Lenovo Legion 5: 17.3-inch FHD, Ryzen 7 5800H, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070, Windows 10 and Wi-Fi 6 – $903.82
- Lenovo Legion 7: 16-inch QHD, Core i9-11980HK, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, Windows 10 and Wi-Fi 6 – $855.99
Well, seeing the list of gaming laptops you get a fair idea of the specs and pricing, which is peculiar at times. The Core i5 Intel variant looks costly while the Ryzen 7 variants looks to be really good for the money as they offer lot more especially the RTX 3070 variant with Ryzen 7 costs the same as the Core i7 variant with RTX 3060.
Though we do not know how these 8 or 6 core Tiger Lake-H processors will perform but their existence is confirmed with this leak. It can also be safely assumed that OEMs have already got these Intel CPUs and maybe just waiting for Intel to officially launch these beefier CPUs.

As you see, @momomo_us has already brought you the entire Tiger Lake-H lineup from Core i5-11400H onwards, which on the other hand, sports six 10nm based Cores based on their SuperFin transistors that should increase performance significantly.
The Intel Core i5-11400H comes with a 2.7GHz base and 4.5GHz boost clock speeds so should indeed give good gaming performance, which is to be seen in the coming days. Intel has upgraded the Core i7-11800H to 8 cores and you get a 2.4GHz base and 4.6GHz boost clock speeds.
The Core i9 series, on the other hand, still retains 8 cores, but this time, the Core i9-11900H features a 2.5GHz base and 4.9GHz boost clock speeds. The flagship Core i9-11980HK sports 8 cores which have a 2.6GHz base and 5GHz boost clock speeds.
Practically speaking, these specs look impressive on paper, and Intel claimed double-digit IPC improvements with Tiger Lake-H and so 8 core flagships should indeed have significant improvements over last-gen. Both AMD and Intel will be going head-to-head this year, with high-performing chips, blessing gamers with great hardware.
