Lenovo AMD Ryzen powered Legion 7, Legion Slim 7, Legion 5Pro and Legion 5 gaming laptops announced

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show seems to be packing a lot of great news for PC gamers. Nvidia announced their 30-series GPUs for laptops while AMD announced the new Zen 3 based AMD Ryzen 5000-series CPUs. Last year’s AMD Ryzen 4000-series did leave everyone impressed, so there’s generally a large amount of excitement around the new processors. Lenovo, for its part, is announcing four laptop lines that will all use AMD 5000-series CPUs, and pair them with high-end Nvidia GPUs. The laptops in question are the Lenovo Legion 7, Legion Slim 7, Lenovo Legion 5 Pro and the Lenovo Legion 5.

The Lenovo Legion 7 and the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro are the first gaming laptops from Lenovo to sport a display with 16:10 aspect ratio and QHD resolution. The Lenovo Legion Slim 7 is Lenovo’s follow up to their lightest 15-inch gaming laptop from 2020 and now offers AMD’s Ryzen 5000 CPUs paired with up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q. For a spec roundup, you can refer to the table below.
