Lenovo will be launching new gaming laptops with up to a Ryzen 4800H APU in the coming year
Want to hear some great news? Lenovo is planning to launch two new gaming laptops to its AMD Ryzen 4000 portfolio. Drum roll, please. The first variant is the 17-inch Legion 5 and the second one is 15.6-inch IdeaPad Gaming 3 models. Despite being announced together, their availability dates will not be the same. Most likely, the IdeaPad Gaming 3 will go on a sale in late July, while the Legion 5 will start shipping in September.
The 17-inch Legion 5 comes with the same specs as its 15.6-inch variant did when it was launched in April this year. This means that Lenovo offers the 144 Hz FHD screen with Dolby Vision HDR compatibility for the 17-inch version, along with 120 Hz FHD option. Additionally, the dGPU is still limited to an RTX 2060 and the maximum RAM capacity is 16 GB DDR4-3200. Here, the storage side includes one M.2 slot for an NVMe SSD whose capacities can go up to 1 TB.
While, the IdeaPad Gaming 3 model is restricted to a 15.6-inch FHD screen with 120 Hz refresh rate, but the upside is – it still gets the HDR option. GPU options get a bit more limited to a GTX 1650 Ti, and the storage solutions are the same as the Legion 5. But interestingly, the ideaPad 3 supports up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and has dropped the TrueStrike gaming keyboard that is only featured with the Legion series.
Both the models can be equipped with up to a Ryzen 7 4800H APU. One can easily customize and acquire it from Digital Dreams: Lenovo Exclusive Store, once it gets launched. The prices are moderately priced as per the specs.
There is also a Legion 5P esport model with just the 15.6-inch 144 Hz FHD screen and up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, do check that out, but it is launching in select countries only.
