  • The new Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 are the world’s most powerful 16-inch gaming laptops2

May 10, 2022 – Lenovo announced today its latest generation of stylish and savage gaming laptops: the Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 (16”, 7) portable powerhouses, and the thin and light Lenovo Legion Slim 7 and 7i (16”, 7) laptops. Sitting at the apex of gaming performance, the new Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 are now the world’s most powerful 16-inch gaming laptops.2 And joining the 16-inch QHD gaming category are Lenovo Legion’s thinnest and lightest gaming laptops yet – the new Lenovo Legion Slim 7i and 7 – now available in a taller 16:10 display for when productivity meets play. The new Lenovo Legion 7 series laptops exceed expectations with a number of innovation firsts that adapt to and balance the multi-dimensional needs of modern gamers and professional players. These new devices not only have the world’s largest battery capacity on a 16-inch gaming laptop,1 they also reign as the world’s first 16-inch gaming laptops with FHD webcams3 for better streaming, and as the first 16-inch WQXGA (2560×1600) gaming laptops.4 The Windows 11 laptops’ minimalist design, long battery life, and whisper-quiet artificial intelligence (A.I.) tuned thermals are purpose-built for those who want performance and mobility.

“Lenovo Legion has always occupied a place at the pinnacle of gaming performance, complementing gamers’ personal and professional lives to adapt to wherever they go, whether it’s a tournament stadium, classroom, or boardroom,” said Ouyang Jun, Lenovo’s vice president and general manager of the Consumer Business Segment, Intelligent Devices Group. “More stylish and savage than ever before, Lenovo’s new Legion 7 series laptops are leveling up to push the limits of smarter, high-performance gaming.”

Lenovo Legion 7i and 7: The Apex of Performance

Lenovo Legion 7As the world’s most powerful 16-inch gaming laptops,1 the Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 (16”, 7) are engineered for those who demand the highest performance in their gametime. The laptops’ sleek, stylish, and understated sports-tuned design features an improved hinge and I/O dashboard. Crafted from aluminum and magnesium aerospace-grade metal into a unibody design, the new Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 laptops have a CNC metal trim that’s subtle and minimalist in its expression of unrestrained power. An environmental RGB system with ambient effects on the keyboard and trim sync up with the content displayed on its screen.

The Lenovo Legion TrueStrike keyboard is also improved with curved keys featuring travel that’s deeper than the previous generation. New WASD Force Sensor Technology with optional swappable keys5 lets players accelerate their in-game character as more force is applied to the keys.

Underneath the laptops’ sleek covers is sheer power. Now visually thinner-looking than the previous generation at as thin as 19mm (0.75 in), the Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 are engineering feats that pack up to the latest graphics, processors, and storage into a 2.5kg (5.5 lb) chassis. This mighty machine offers serious range too, with a battery of 99.99Whr – the world’s largest battery on a 16-inch gaming laptop1 – and up to 135Whr USB Type-C fast charging.6

And as the world’s first gaming laptops with a16-inch WQXGA display,4 the Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 come in a taller 16:10 aspect ratio with up to 1,250 nits peak brightness and full DCI-P3 calibrated color space coverage, high dynamic range, and TÜV eye safe certification.8 Gamers can choose between three panel options at up-to-240Hz variable refresh rates (165Hz standard) for everyday use, smoother eSports gameplay where every frame counts, or cinematic visuals with amazing color accuracy. The new Lenovo Legion 7i and Legion 7 laptops also feature Tobii Horizon software, which brings a more immersive experience for gamers, and Tobii Aware, which uses smart sensor technology to help improve users’ security, privacy, and wellbeing.

The Lenovo Legion 7i and 7 feature up to 12th Gen Intel Core HX Series or AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU (up to 175W TGP) or AMD Radeon RX 6850M XT mobile graphics, DDR5 memory, and Gen 4 PCIe SSD storage9 are all tuned for maximum performance via the Lenovo Legion A.I. Engine 2.0. This A.I. engine can predict fan curve, and balance GPU and CPU resource output in real time depending on each game to deliver its best performance. Its A.I. calibration can also intelligently boost the Lenovo Legion Coldfront 4.0 thermal system to cool down the GPU and CPU, while the laptop’s vapor chamber technology expands the boundaries of what’s possible in a gaming laptop for desktop-level performance CPUs, with up to 115W of thermal capacity without throttling. The thermals also include 67 percent thinner fan blades from the previous generation for improved air flow, phase-change thermal compound coating for faster heat transfer, larger surface area and sub-keyboard intake vents.

Lenovo Legion Slim 7i and 7: The Freedom to Create New Worlds

Legion Slim 7As Lenovo Legion’s thinnest and lightest 16-inch gaming laptop, the new Lenovo Legion Slim 7i and 7 (16”, 7) are engineered for powerful gaming and content creation experiences in a polished and minimalist design. Available in Storm or Onyx grey,10 the CNC-machined metal trim build is light and svelte at 2kg (4.4 lb) and 16mm (0.63 in), thanks to its aluminum and magnesium aerospace-grade metal unibody casing. The elevated design is suited for virtually any setting, whether in a coffee shop, office or a gaming tournament, while taking up the same overall footprint as a 15-inch laptop.

Legion Slim 7i - long battery life

The new Lenovo Legion Slim 7 laptop series offer greater freedom to roam, while still retaining the power and performance with up to the latest 12th Gen Intel Core H Series or AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX processors. Users will need fewer adapters for the road with the laptops’ improved and dedicated rear I/O dashboard with HDMI 2.1, while enjoying unprecedented range with a massive 99.99Whr capacity battery and up to 135 Whr USB Type-C Fast Charging.6

The large 16-inch display also empowers gamers to enter new pixel-perfect worlds of brilliant color and shadow, with color calibration software support, high dynamic range, and up to DCI P3 color accuracy –  without straining their eyes with TÜV Rheinland Gold Label certification.8 From generation to generation, the Lenovo Legion Slim 7 series have also expanded the active area ratio of its 16-inch WQXGA display from 86 percent to 93 percent with a 16:10 aspect ratio for even more immersive viewing. The Lenovo Legion Slim 7 series are available in three panel options10 at blazing up-to-240Hz variable refresh rates (165Hz standard) and optional Mini-LED.7

Underneath the sleek exterior, the Lenovo Legion Slim 7i and 7 are tuned by A.I. in the Lenovo Legion Coldfront 4.0 thermal system and Lenovo Legion A.I. Engine 2.0 to balance GPU and CPU resource output for better performance. The laptops also feature up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 (up to 100W Boosted TGP) GPU or AMD Radeon RX 6800S mobile graphics, with DDR5 memory and Gen 4 PCIe SSD storage.9

Generational improvements to the thermal system include: a 29 percent increase in size; 31 percent more liquid crystal polymer fan blades that are also 40 percent thinner, while spinning 100rpm faster thanks to a dual fan system; an additional copper heat pipe dedicated just for the GPU VRAM; as well as a coating of phase-change thermal compound to boost heat sink effectiveness. Lenovo engineers further implemented a sub-key air intake system in the keyboard, with over 1,172 intake vents, where each key features 1.3mm soft-landing switches for faster, more accurate key strikes. Cumulatively, these design and engineering improvements combine to deliver fan noise of under 30 decibels while in Stealth Mode, which roughly matches the voice of a whisper.
