Lenovo Legion 5 Pro: A laptop with advanced technologies for gamers

Laptops have evolved greatly and offer superior capabilities in graphics, audio, cooling, large screen and extended battery life, in a moderate thickness and weight that allow gamers to carry these computers with them wherever they go and enjoy extended gaming sessions with friends and family, or while traveling.

Among the latest laptops belonging to this category is the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro at its moderate price, which was tested by the “Middle East”, and we mention a summary of the experience.

Advanced features for professional gameplay

First of all, the computer is suitable for gamers who aim to play at 1440 resolution with high graphics capabilities in modern games, due to the high levels of performance it offers. It offers very high image quality, along with the use of a highly responsive mouse pad. It also offers different high-performance ports with different functions that suit the needs of daily use, which includes connecting the computer to several high-definition screens.

As for the keyboard, it is highly responsive and works with TrueStrike technology that provides fast integrated key buttons, while providing an ergonomic design for the shape of the buttons and the ability to change the colors of the button lighting in 4 areas. The keyboard also offers the standard side number buttons on the right. With regard to audio, the computer offers a special technology from Lenovo called Nahimic 3D Audio for stereoscopic surround sound that increases the quality of bass and high treble.

An impressive gaming experience can be played on the go

The screen is large and comfortable to use, with a diameter of 16 inches, and it displays the image with a resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels and a frequency between 165 and 240 Hz (using Variable Refresh Rate VRR technology) with IPS technology and an aspect ratio of 16:10, in addition to supporting Dolby Vision and HDR 400 technologies. G-Sync, full sRGB color support, and anti-glare inversion. The screen supports eye comfort mode and blue color reduction, in addition to providing a special pattern for gamers to increase response rates.

Legion ColdFront 4.0 technology was used to dissipate energy from use, using fans that are 40 percent smaller than the previous version and a better internal heatpipe design. The Vantage tool can also be used to control the electrical power obtained by the processor and the speed of fan rotation, in order to choose to raise performance levels, but at the expense of raising the sound of the fan due to its rapid rotation for cooling, or reducing performance levels and obtaining quieter sessions. A style that offers moderate advantages may also be chosen from the two mentioned factors.

The battery has a charge of 80 watt-hours and can work for about 6 hours when activating the hybrid mode to use the graphics units Hybrid Mode (the low-performance integrated graphics “Intel Iris XE” is used for simple tasks, and the high-performance specialized graphics unit “NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070” Titanium” for demanding tasks), or 4 hours when using a dedicated high-performance graphics unit only Discrete Mode.

Upon testing the device, it was able to work for about 4 and a half hours of surfing the Internet, and more than 7 hours of playing HD video shows. It should be noted that the large screen of the computer, the speed of the processor and the graphics unit affects the duration of use, but gamers prefer to have a larger screen for better gaming pleasure. The charger provides 300 watts of power to the battery.

A group of advanced and demanding games from different categories (adventure, shooter and strategy) were tested, as it was able to run Assassin’s Cred Valhalla (Ultra-High) and get a graphics rate of 82 FPS, and Fortnite (highest Epic specifications) ) and get 107 fps, along with Civilizations IV at the highest Ultra specification) and get 181 fps. It can be confirmed that the internal circuit cooling mechanism works very efficiently because the temperature was not high when playing these games and with the graphics requirements that were selected.

And because the device uses modern technologies for processors, memory, storage, graphics and audio, and offers a large screen, many ports and advanced connectivity capabilities, it can be used for many years without the need to develop its capabilities, and its structure is made of reinforced aluminum to protect it from shocks.

Technical Specifications

The computer benefits from 14 cores using a 12th generation Intel Core i7 12700H processor (6 high-performance P-Core cores at 2.3 GHz for demanding tasks that can be upgraded to 4.7 GHz when needed, and 8 Economical performance E-Core cores at 1.7 GHz for normal tasks can be scaled up to 3.5 GHz when needed). This allows up to 20 threads per session (12 threads through 6 high-performance cores, 8 threads through 8 economical cores).

The processor offers 24 MB of its own super-fast cache, supports the new DDR5 memory with speeds up to 4,800 MHz, as well as an integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics processing unit. As for the specialized graphics unit, it is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti with 8 GB of graphics memory, and it works at a speed of 1485 MHz and a capacity of 150 watts.

The computer uses 32 GB of memory to operate and 1 terabyte (1024 GB) of built-in NVME M.2 solid-state drive storage. The computer also provides a built-in camera for voice and video conversations that operates at a resolution of 720, which can be turned off the power supply with the press of a button, for more privacy.

The computer offers several ports, including a port for wired networks 100/1000M, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 port that provides continuous electric charge, and a USB Type-C 3 port. 2” The second generation supports data transfer and image display via DisplayPort 1.4 technology, and the USB Type-C 3.2 port. The second generation supports data transfer and image display via DisplayPort 1.4 technology and provides power with a capacity of 135 watts, in addition to the “Thunderbolt 4” port. » With a data transfer rate of 40 Gbps (5 Gbps, because 8 Gbps is 1 GB) and image display via DisplayPort 1.4 technology. The computer also provides an HDMI port to display images with a resolution of up to 8K at a frequency of 60 Hz, a common standard port for headphones and microphone, and a charging port, and it supports the new “Wi-Fi 6E” and “Bluetooth 5.1” networks. The computer uses a TPM 2.0 chip to encrypt data. It is 19.9 millimeters thick and weighs 2.49 kilograms. It is running the Windows 11 Home operating system with a data transfer capacity of 64-bit. The price of the computer is 8,999 Saudi riyals (about $2,399), and it is available in the Arab region in gray.

Another computer that is thinner and lighter than it will be launched called Lenovo Legion S7 that offers the same specifications, but uses 16 GB of memory instead of 32 GB, and a graphics card “NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060” instead of “NVIDIA GeForce R”. The TX3070 Titanium is 16.9 mm thick (compared to 19.9 mm for the regular version), and it weighs 2.23 kg (compared to 2.48 kg for the regular version).
