Lenovo’s new gaming ecosystem debuted at CES 2024, with Microsoft Windows 11-based PCs, peripherals, software, and services that deliver on power, thermals, graphics, AI-powered advantages, and the freedom to build the ultimate system to game.

The new PC portfolio includes the following new 9th generation Lenovo Legion 16-inch gaming laptops and towers:

  • The Lenovo Legion 7i (16”, 9), Lenovo Legion 5i (16”, 9), and Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (16”, 9) are for gamers who need a laptop that can handle their favorite games as well as their STEM apps.
  • The Lenovo Legion 9i (16″, 9) is for those who will settle for nothing less than the best in their gaming and content creation pursuits.
  • The Lenovo Legion Pro 7i (16”, 9) and Lenovo Legion Pro 5i (16”, 9) are for gamers who need the ultimate in FPS, style, and screen.
  • Legion Tower 7i and Legion Tower 5i are for those who need the extra horsepower of a top-tier gaming tower PC.

Also new this year are the Lenovo LOQ 15IRX9, Lenovo LOQ 15IAX9I, Lenovo LOQ 15IAX9, and Lenovo LOQ 15AHP9 laptops and Lenovo LOQ Tower 17IRR9 for gamers beginning their journey up the leaderboards. New accessories, such as the Lenovo Legion M410 Wireless RGB Gaming Mouse and Legion K510 Pro Mini Keyboard, along with a new Lenovo AvatarMaster PC software app round out the upgraded ecosystem.

At the core of this new gaming lineup is the family of Lenovo’s proprietary hardware AI chips—called LA AI chips–and the advantages they bring to both Lenovo Legion and Lenovo LOQ gaming laptops. First introduced last CES, this year’s LA AI chips are mightier than ever, enabling Lenovo Legion and Lenovo LOQ laptops to achieve even higher FPS, increased power efficiency, and more. And with a selection of gaming laptops, towers, monitors, accessories and even the handheld Lenovo Legion Go announced last IFA, the new Lenovo gaming ecosystem lets gamers choose the exact setup they need to achieve gaming greatness and reach their ‘impossible’.

This is coupled with Smart FPS, which tracks power usage between hardware components and FPS output while gaming. It scans on-screen FPS data, then takes this data and runs it through an algorithm that optimizes CPU and GPU power that increases FPS in games. The Lenovo LA3-P AI chip also enables Lighting Audio Sync, which syncs the device’s RGB lights with the sound for a more immersive gaming experience. There is also Legion Aurora Sync which uses AI to synchronize what is displayed on screen with the keyboard and environmental RGB, as well as Smart Control that allows gamers to quickly switch between preset power profiles including a user-settable Custom mode.

New for this year is the Lenovo Legion “Coldfront: Hyper” thermal solution, available on the Lenovo Legion 7i and Lenovo Legion 5i. This is a completely new thermal solution that has fully reinvented the path that air takes through the chassis when cooling the laptop. Hot air from the chips is forced through a channel-like hyperbaric chamber in the center of the laptop. The bottom D-cover is designed to prevent hot air exhausting out the back vent from mixing with the cold air being pulled in by the dual fans, optimizing heat exchange and keeping the laptops’ hardware cooler and the framerates higher. This results in a max output of 175W in Extreme Mode on the thinner Lenovo Legion 7i, and up to 190W max TDP on the Lenovo Legion 5i, while keeping the keyboard cooler and more comfortable even under heavy processor loads.

Lenovo Legion series laptops also feature PureSight displays, which are per-unit color calibrated. The Lenovo Legion 7i (16”, 9) is available with either a 16-inch 3.2K 16:10 IPS display with 165Hz refresh, 100% DCI-P3 support, and 450 nits brightness for extra fidelity whether gaming, designing, or creating content; or a 16-inch WQXGA 16:10 display with 240Hz refresh and 100% sRGB for users who require faster display refresh rates. This latter panel is also available on the Lenovo Legion 5i and Lenovo Legion Slim 5. eSports Display software allows gamers to turn on Dynamic response time, accelerating the LCD response time, reducing image blur and enhancing the clarity of outlines. Also included in the software are a selectable-position FPS display and an aim assist reticle for that extra edge in first-person shooter games.

Taking the streaming and collaboration experience to a new level, select Lenovo Legion systems,3 including the Legion 7i (16″, 9) and Legion 5i (16″, 9) are now equipped with AvatarMaster.

After creating and customizing their avatars, users can animate and stream a digital version of themselves during video conferences, gaming sessions and across multiple platforms.

Harnessing the power of AI, AvatarMaster tracks both movements and audio, mimicking in real time a raised eyebrow, a nod and even a blink so that the avatar is as expressive as the user. Even when the camera is off, users can take advantage of the AI-powered audio tracking mode to show facial expressions in the avatar only based on vocal and audio cues, allowing them to be present while remaining private.

Lenovo AvatarMaster

Simplicity, customization, and compatibility set the AvatarMaster apart. Fluid avatars and animations are no longer reserved for professional content creators or programmers since AvatarMaster requires no system upgrades or complex tools. Simply launch the user-friendly interface, snap a photo with the webcam and let the AI analyze and create a realistic version of the user within seconds.

Designed for gamers, but also great for professionals, AvatarMaster is compatible with popular messaging, livestreaming, and chat platforms. Gamers can now show their true imaginative visual selves while gaming or livestreaming and professionals can now interact on a conference call without turning their cameras on. The software also provides a proxy avatar for users concerned about their privacy while still enabling them to be interactive and responsive on camera. AvatarMaster integrates with the extensive ecosystem of avatar experiences from Ready Player Me, a cross-game avatar platform for developers.
