Lenovo's new budget contenders!

As a recap, the new APU is made for entry-level users who want Zen 2 architecture and RDNA 2 technology for integrated graphics. Apart from that, it is built on 6nm lithography for longer battery life and less heating.

The Lenovo Ideapad 1 has two models with 14-inch HD or 15-inch FHD displays with choices of either Athlon Gold 7220U or Athlon Silver 7120U with dual-core CPUs and the Ryzen 3 7320U, or Ryzen 5 7520U  both with 4-cores. All of these chips come with Radeon 610 iGPU with two compute units (CUs) and are clocked at 1.9GHz.

In comparison, the more powerful RDNA 2 graphics from Ryzen 5 6600U and Ryzen 7 6800U have 6 CUs and 12 CUs respectively.

Moving forward the "Mendocino" chips are partnered with 4GB LPDDR5-5500 RAM and 128GB PCIe 3.0 SSD for the dual-core variants while the 4-core variants will have a bigger 8 and 16GB RAM and 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSD. To increase the storage, Lenovo included an SD card slot.

For batteries, Lenovo claims they can last up to 14 hours in video playback mode. While the charging adaptors aren't specified.

For connectivity, they have WiFi 5 for the Athlon models and WiFi 6 with the Ryzen. The rest are Bluetooth 5.0 or 5.1, USB-C 3.2 Gen 1, USB-A 3.2 Gen 1, USB 2.0, HDMI 1.4b, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

The exact international pricing is still unknown though but GizmoChina says that the base Athlon version has HK dollars priced at 3.8K or USD 490 or PHP 27.3K if converted to our currency.

No word yet for PH availability either so stay tuned with us in the meantime.
