By / 4 months ago / News / No Comments

Lenovo, the world’s leading PC company has announced its latest generation of Lenovo Legion PCs landing in Malaysia. The 2020 lineup features the Legion 5 (AMD), Legion 5i, Legion 5Pi, Legion 7i, Legion Tower 5i and IdeaPad Gaming 3i. Stylish on the outside, savage on the inside, the new generation provides gamers with a smarter class of gear with our unique blend of uncompromised engineering and industrial design.

For gamers who are looking to refresh their gaming device, Lenovo has great offerings when you pre-order the Legion 5i and Legion 5Pi from 1 – 15 June, by visiting lenovo.my/legionpreorder or at selected Lenovo Exclusive Stores (LES). Those who pre-order the Legion 5Pi will enjoy free gifts worth up to RM5,436, including the Legion Y44w-10 Gaming Monitor, while stocks last.

The Legion 7i, Legion Tower 5i and IdeaPad Gaming 3i will be coming to Malaysia later in 2020.

Set to deliver unbridled performance for the most demanding users, this new range of devices are packed with performance and features for an enhanced gaming experience. Prior to launching this new generation of gaming devices, Lenovo surveyed thousands of global players. Among those surveyed, nearly half responded that they used their gaming PCs for everyday computing as well as gaming. Better graphics, processors and memory options are tops on their must-have list.

A key conclusion was that how people game, with whom, on how many devices, and for how long, all factored heavily when choosing a PC. When they do manage to squeeze in some hardcore gaming time with friends, it is crucial that the experience in those precious hours blows them away.

Lenovo Legion has gamers covered with powerful Windows 10 PCs packed with the following innovations:

  1. Lenovo Legion TrueStrike Keyboard

Inspired by Lenovo’s heritage in innovative keyboard technologies, the Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboard is precision-crafted to deliver 100 percent anti-ghosting, sub-millisecond response times, and ‘soft-landing’ switches resulting in hair-trigger accuracy.

You can feel a more tactile gaming experience due to its superior key travel via its second transition curve design. The keyboard layout is ideal for gaming with full-sized keys and number pad, and optional 4-zone RGB lighting on the other new Lenovo Legion laptop models. Built to withstand heavy long-term use, Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboards feature an anti-oil coating to resist abrasion.

  1. Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0

Gamers can extract maximum performance from their rigs through the next-generation thermal efficiencies of Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0. This is the synergy of hardware and software that promotes better airflow, lower system temperatures to keep your Lenovo Legion laptop cool and quiet.

Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 features Dual Burn, which pushes the CPU and GPU to their in-game limits so that gamers can experience more predictable frames per second (FPS) without thermal throttling.

In the past, gaming laptop processors would slow down (thermal throttling) as temperatures rose and framerates would be unpredictable. Meanwhile, the Lenovo Legion devices stay cool to the touch via an optimized cooling system of heat sinks that dissipate more heat away from the motherboard.

Finally, a multipoint sensor array works to cool down key components in anticipation of intense gameplay.

  1. Improved Battery Life

Lenovo Legion gaming PCs will be first to feature the new Advanced Optimus designed in collaboration with NVIDIA to boost battery life.

Advanced Optimus dynamically switches between the use of the Integrated Graphic Processing Unit (found on the CPU) for more battery life, to the discrete NVIDIA GPU for higher frames per second. All this happens without a need to reboot the machine. If gamers want to manually disable their discrete GPU for a longer battery life, they can do so using Lenovo Vantage software’s Hybrid Mode.

Lenovo Q-Control 3.0 also lets users switch between three settings for system voltage and fan speeds – Performance, Quiet, and Balanced.

Upshift to Performance Mode to turbo-charge past the competition with higher CPU voltage and higher FPS. When streaming esports, downshift into Quiet Mode to lower battery drain and fan noise. Or enable Balanced Mode for automatic adjustments based on which apps are open. Other power-enhancing features include Rapid Charge Pro (from 0 to 50 percent battery in 30 minutes) and battery sip feature (instinctively releases power in small doses for more battery life consistency).

  1. Brilliant Displays

Lenovo Legion makes the most of your display panel’s capabilities through Dolby Vision which offers deeper blacks and brighter whites without washing out color or contrast. The laptops offer panels of up to 240hz refresh rates at under 1ms response times for ultra-smooth cinematics without screen tearing.

The new Lenovo Legion laptops offer High Dynamic Range (HDR) on select panels with at least 300nits of brightness, so that dramatic shadowed scenes with high levels of black tones are reproduced vividly with more depth; 100 percent sRGB color accurate panels also offer life-like visuals.
