Latest lineup of Lenovo Legion gaming PCs and high-refresh monitor aim to level up esports competitors

The Lenovo Legion gaming PC family, which runs on Windows 10, has added some new devices that feature NVIDIA’s latest technologies, powered by the latest 11th Gen Intel Core H-series mobile processors.

Among them are the new 16-inch flagship Lenovo Legion 7i, the 16-inch Lenovo Legion 5i Pro and the new 15-inch and 17-inch Lenovo Legion 5i. Esports players can complete their setup with fast-paced, tear-free gameplay through the new Lenovo Legion Y25g-30 IPS gaming monitor with a 360Hz refresh rate.

Gamers and content creators can choose the high performance processor they want for superior streaming, low latency, high frames per second (FPS) and near desktop-caliber performance. Windows 10 helps handle the demands of multitasking and heavy workloads, with up to 5GHz turbo frequency for peak performance on multiple cores before overclocking.

Thunderbolt 4 supports these Intel-powered gaming laptops for more reliable display connections, quicker charging and data transfers. Thanks to Intel Killer Wi-Fi 6 connectivity [1], which gives players the ability to watch live gaming streams without slowdowns, your laptop doesn’t have to compete for bandwidth on the same wireless channel as other devices.

The new Lenovo Legion PCs offer the performance of NVIDIA GeForce RTX Laptop GPUs with the latest ray tracing cinematics. Gamers can enjoy unlimited access to over 100 high-quality PC games for one low monthly price with an included Xbox Game Pass for PC [3]. Not only will subscribers receive exclusive offers and discounts, but they can download and play new games as soon as they’re released [3].

In esports, milliseconds matter, since winning and losing can depend on higher frame rates and lower input latency for faster reaction times. Built to provide gaming professionals a major upgrade in smoothness and increased responsiveness, the new Lenovo Legion Y25g-30 ​​​​​360Hz gaming monitor can be a real game changer for competitive esports play.

The monitor comes in a 24.5-inch mid display size for greater concentration, with Eye Comfort technology to reduce eye strain plus lift/tilt and pivot/swivel stand capabilities for ergonomic comfort for late night battles. With a mode for an extreme 1ms response time, it’s powered by NVIDIA G-SYNC and NVIDIA Reflex technologies and engineered to eliminate streaking and ghosting in-game.
