Lenovo is rapidly shaking with the latest NVIDIA and Intel technology for its gaming laptops. The company is presenting successor to the Y540, Legion 5i, and successor to the Y740, Legion 7i portables. These devices are among the first to use NVIDIA’s Advanced Optimus graphics switching. The tech both lowers power consumption in less-intensive moments and ramps up performance in GPU during heavy situations. Moreover, it gives you added battery life and higher frame rates in the same package. The Legion 7i also gets the option of new GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q graphics for the best possible visuals. Both devices will have 10th-generation Intel Core H-series processors.
Point to be noted that Lenovo hasn’t yet mentioned the exact chips, but it is expected you won’t see AMD-based models when NVIDIA’s Max-Q is currently available only for Intel CPUs. Lenovo hasn’t informed about the availability of devices in the United States. The Legion 5i will help lower the base price for GeForce RTX-equipped gaming laptops, with an RTX 2060-equipped system starting at $999. It’s not certain how much the Legion 7i with an RTX 2080 Super Max-Q will cost. But, an RTX 2070-based version is expected to start at $1,199. It is noteworthy that Acer has joined a burst of PC manufacturers in adopting the next wave of NVIDIA and Intel chips inside its laptops.
The company is updating its 15.6-inch Predator Triton 500 and Nitro 5 gaming portables. Both devices will use new GeForce RTX Super laptop GPUs of NVIDIA and 10th-generation Core H-series processors of Intel. The Premium Predator series has a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q to deliver speedier and more efficient graphics. It mates that with a 300Hz, 3ms response IPS display and per-key RGB keyboard lighting. Predator Triton 500 with GeForce RTX 2080 Super video, a Core i7-10750H CPU, 32GB of RAM and, a 1TB SSD will cost you $2,600 in the United States.
