Whenever you happen to’d like AMD’s most up-to-date CPU, it’s going to cost you slightly more. The Lenovo AMD Legion 5 gaming notebook computer will originate at $850 compared to $830 for the Intel version wearing 10th gen Comet Lake-H.
(April 16, 2020 update: The Legion 7 is a 15.6-chase notebook computer with no 17.3-chase version launched as of this writing. The article has been amended.)
The recently revealed flagship 15.6-chase Legion 7 might be joined by the mid-fluctuate 15.6-chase Legion 5 series next month to replace the ragged 15.6-chase Legion Y740-15. Though it might probably presumably per chance occupy to carry the the same invent language as the Legion 7, the Legion 5 will truly occupy far more variations below the hood.
First, let’s originate with the external variations. The Legion 5 TrueStrike keyboard might per chance presumably per chance occupy deeper key shuttle than the Legion 7 (1.5 mm vs. 1.3 mm) while dropping both Thunderbolt 3 give a enhance to and per-key RGB lighting. The latter is disappointing because even the older Legion Y740-15 would give a enhance to Thunderbolt 3 and per-key RGB lighting. In the intervening time, the 1080p-most productive screen might be as much as 120 Hz for the AMD SKUs and 240 Hz for the Intel SKUs.
Internally, the Legion 5 might per chance presumably per chance occupy a primitive copper warmth pipe cooling resolution in distinction to the more developed vapor chamber cooler of the Legion 7. GPU alternate choices might be as much as the GTX 1650 or 1650 Ti for the AMD SKUs and as much as the RTX 2060 for the Intel SKUs. This implies that the Legion 5 series might per chance presumably per chance well truly toddle games slower than final twelve months’s Legion Y740-15 which supplied sooner RTX 2080 Max-Q alternate choices. Two battery sizes might be made readily on the market with the smaller dimension having more interior storage alternate choices.
Primarily basically based mostly on the preliminary configurations, it appears like Lenovo might be marketing the AMD Legion 5 to be about a steps below the Intel Legion 5i by plan of efficiency and screen components with out reference to the decrease beginning tag for the Intel version. Comparisons between the Intel and AMD SKUs might per chance presumably per chance occupy to be attention-grabbing nonetheless especially since users might per chance presumably per chance occupy the approach to configure with the the same GeForce GTX GPU.
The AMD Legion 5 and Intel Legion 5i will beginning at a beginning tag of $850 and $830 USD, respectively. A 17.3-chase Intel Legion 5i can even beginning simultaneously for a beginning tag of $1130 albeit with no 17.3-chase AMD counterpart option.
