New gaming laptops from Lenovo

The first one would be the Legion 7 and 7i which are the standard versions. The "i" in its name stands for intel variant while the other one comes with a Ryzen processor. These devices are 19mm thick and weigh 4.4 pounds.

Both of them have 16-inch displays with QHD resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio, 165Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision HDR, and Nvidia G-Sync or AMD FreeSync support depending on the variant you choose. Additionally, there's also an option to get a 240Hz refresh panel with a variable refresh rate (VRR).

The AMD variant has a Ryzen 6900HX processor and up to Radeon RX6850M XT GPU. The Intel counterpart however gets a 12th-gen Core i9-12900HX and up to RTX 3080ti graphics. 

They paired the machines with DDR5 RAM clocked at 4,800MHz for the 16GB and 32GB models. The 32GB RAM model however can be overclocked to 5,600MHz. As for the storage sizes it has 512GB, 1 TB, and 2TB PCIe Gen 4 SSD options.

We've mentioned that the battery is also improved, it now has a massive 99.99WHr capacity and charges up to 300W power brick depending on the GPU.

It goes the same with the webcam which is now 1080p over its predecessor with 720p only.

The cooling system was redesigned as well, the air is now pulled through a grille above the keyboard and through the keyboard itself. The air is also forced out of the corners' vents as well. The brand stated that its 29 percent bigger fans have 31 percent more liquid crystal polymer blades and spin at a higher 100rpm. Moreover, they also added a heat pipe meant for the GPU too.

It will also come with a Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboard with WASD Force Sensor Technology and swappable keys. They are also RGB capable based on the images shown.

For ports of AMD variant's left side has 2x USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen 2, DP 1.4) 1 x USB-C (USB4, DP 1.4). The right side has 1x USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen 1), 1x E-Shutter Switch, 1x Audio Combo Jack. The rear has 2x USB Type-A 3.2 Gen 1, 1x USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen2, DP 1.4, PD), 1x HDMI 2.1, 1x RJ45 Ethernet (2.5G), 1 x DC-In.

The noticeable change from the Intel version will be the left side USB-Cs have Thunderbolt 4 support. Both versions also get WiFi 6E for connectivity.

Moving to the other two gaming machines introduced, it would be the slim versions of the 7 and 7i. It is now 16mm thin and only weighs 4.4 pounds.

It still has the same size of display at 16-inch, CPU options of AMD or Intel, storage, and webcam.

The difference would be that the slim variants will have display options to choose from such as the QHD LED panel, 1920 x 1200, 2560 x 1600 resolutions on both 165Hz refresh rates, and an option of up to 240Hz with VRR support.

Another change would be the GPUs as they are a bit toned down with only up to Radeon RX 6800S for the AMD variant, while the Intel one gets only up to RTX 3070.

As for the RAM, it now has 8GB, 16GB, and 24GB DDR5 options.

The battery has options of 71WHr or 99.99WHr and has charger choices between 135W, 170W, and 230W depending on the GPU as well.

The Slim version's cooling system is almost the same and the only difference is that it will not get the corner vents design as the standard versions have.

For ports of the AMD variant's left side has 2x USB-C (USB 3.2 Gen 2, DP 1.4) and 1x USB-C (USB4, DP 1.4). The right side has a 1x  4-in-1 SD card reader, 1x audio jack, and 1x E-shutter. The rear has 1x DC-In, 2x USB-A 3.2 Gen 2, and 1x HDMI 2.1. Again Intel version's left side USB-C's are TB 4 capable. 

Connectivity-wise, Lenovo says all models get WiFi 6E. However, the Slim AMD variant has WiFi 6 option.

The gaming devices will also run Windows 11 Pro or Home as their operating system.
