Lenovo Legion Offers More Ways to Raise Your Game with Ryzen Processors

People use technology to make their lives easier and to discover exciting ways of staying entertained at home. Whether you’re embracing PC gaming for the first time or have been a passionate gaming devotee for years and just need an upgrade, Lenovo is committed to bringing you technologies that are not only smarter but also offer more choices to more people. We actively listen to feedback from the gaming community and understand that gamers want fun, immersive experiences in sleek-looking devices with stellar FPS performance at the best value. In short, players want more choices.

That’s why following the recent launch of our new Lenovo Legion lineup this spring that focused on customer-inspired innovations such as a better keyboard and thermals, our engineering team worked on expanding even more Windows 10 PC options for gaming enthusiasts. The expansion won’t cut corners on performance, graphics, or display either. Available starting this summer, we’ve added AMD Ryzen mobile and desktop processors to five new Lenovo Legion gaming PCs—the 17-inch Lenovo Legion 5 laptop (alongside its 15-inch size that’s already available with AMD Ryzen 4000 H-Series Mobile Processors), the high-octane Lenovo Legion 5P laptop, the Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 laptop for entry-level gaming, plus the Lenovo Legion Tower 5 and IdeaCentre Gaming 5 desktops.

Next-level AMD Ryzen 4000 H-Series Mobile Processors can improve your thin and light Lenovo Legion laptop’s performance by raising clock speeds—making games, content creation and productivity applications all run much faster.

Built using the AMD “Zen 2” core architecture with 7 nm process technology, Lenovo Legion offers customers the latest Ryzen Mobile Processors that deliver balanced performance with better responsiveness than its predecessor.1 The Ryzen 4000 Series Mobile Processors also offer twice the power efficiency compared to the previous generation.2 When paired with available NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, Lenovo’s gaming laptops and desktops come fully equipped to tackle the latest games with remarkable speed.

These additions strengthen the diversity of Lenovo’s PC gaming portfolio, offering players more processor and graphics options needed to experience the latest games at the highest settings. Let’s check out these powerhouse machines.
