Lenovo reveals new Legion products for 2020; boasts new innovations to address 'pain points'

04/21/2020 09:55:29 PM

Tech brand Lenovo has formally revealed its line of Legion product offerings for the year 2020. 

In a virtual press conference held recently, executives of Lenovo Philippines, its partners, and media friends were gathered for an afternoon of presentation that formally launches new laptops, desktops, and accessories for its gaming line. 

The latest generation of Lenovo Legion computers posses innovations that served as answers for the usual five pain-points as pointed by gamers in their research study the year prior. They also banked on their tagline “stylish on the outside, savage on the inside” due to a unique blend of uncompromised engineering and industrial design.

"Gamers today seek the perfect balance of work and play in their lives. Lenovo Legion's latest lineup was developed to meet their demands for stylish machines that have great performance for every scenario. Our innovations such as Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 and TrueStrike keyboards offer superior thermals and typing comfort, further elevating the gaming experience for everyone," said Ian Tan, Asia-Pacific Gaming Lead at Lenovo.

As their step to meet marketing demands, Lenovo introduced these innovations embodied in the upcoming products:

Lenovo Legion Coldfront 2.0 thermal management, a synergy of hardware that better airflow, lower system temperatures to keep your Lenovo Legion laptop cool and quiet. 

Via this innovation, Legion devices stay cool to the touch via an optimized cooling system of heat sinks that dissipate more heat away from the motherboard. And a multipoint sensor array works to cool down key components in anticipation of intense gameplay.

Meanwhile, selected Legion devices (7i and Y740Si) has been integrated with Vapor Chamber Cooling Systems to dispel heat as dual liquid crystal polymer fan systems cycle air with chilling efficiency. 

Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboard. Banking on their brand's heritage in innovative computer technologies, TrueStrike is precision-crafted to deliver 100 percent anti-ghosting, sub-millisecond response times, and ‘soft-landing’ switches resulting in hair-trigger accuracy.  

It has a keyboard layout that's ideal for gaming with full-sized keys and number pad, larger one-piece trackpad, arrow keys plus dedicated media keys that will illuminate in over 16 million colors with Corsair iCUE support on the Lenovo Legion 7i, and optional 4-zone RGB lighting on the other new Lenovo Legion laptop models. Not to mention, it features an anti-oil coating to resist abrasion.

Dual Burn to optimize CPU and GPU performance together

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

NVIDIA® Advanced Optimus, Hybrid Mode, and Rapid Charge Pro for improved battery life

Lenovo Legion became the first gaming PC brand to showcase the w Advanced Optimus1 designed in collaboration with NVIDIA to boost battery life. It 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. 

Hybrid Mode can be accessible through Lenovo's Vantage software if games to manually disable their discrete GPU for a longer battery life

Rapid Change Pro is one of Lenovo's other power-enhancing features that let their devices powered up in nearly an instant (or from 0 to 50 percent battery in just 30 minutes).

World-class immersive displays optimized by Dolby Vision® and OverDrive Support with optional 240Hz refresh rates and response rates of under 1ms.

Lenovo's devices boast brilliant displays by making the most of its capabilities through  Dolby Vision which offers deeper blacks and brighter whites without washing out color or contrast. 

All of these can be found on any of Lenovo's new products, namely: 


  • Lenovo Legion 7i1 
  • Lenovo Legion 5Pi 
  • Lenovo Legion 5i
  • Lenovo Legion 5 
  • Lenovo IdeaPad™ Gaming 3i
  • (refreshed) Lenovo Legion Y740Si


  • Lenovo Legion Tower 5i 
  • Lenovo IdeaCentre™ Gaming 5i 

Aside from providing gamers what they want, the computer giant aims to develop the country's gaming scene through the new Legion lineup.

“When we started Legion in the market in 2017, we also took it upon ourselves to bolster the local gaming community. There are so many competitive titles out there where our players can shine but don’t simply because they lack the necessary gear to handle them. That’s where our new Legion lineup and services come in – to arm Filipino gamers with the devices they need to play the latest and greatest games in order to flourish as eSports professionals both locally and abroad,” said Michael Ngan, Lenovo Philippines General Manager, and President.
