Lenovo has upgraded its Legion 5i offerings to Intel Tiger Lake-H CPUs and NVIDIA RTX 3050/3050 Ti Laptop GPUs alongside the RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 Laptop GPU options. Like the Legion 7i, the Legion 5i Pro also offers a 16-inch 165 Hz WQXGA panel and comes with Legion AI Engine to dynamically shift power between the CPU and GPU depending on the load.

At CES 2021, Lenovo introduced the Legion 5 Pro powered by AMD Ryzen 5000 APUs and NVIDIA RTX 30 Laptop GPUs. Now, Lenovo is offering an Intel version powered by the latest 11th gen Tiger Lake-H CPUs and NVIDIA RTX 3050/3050 Ti Laptop GPU options. 

The Legion 5i Pro offers the same 16-inch 16:10 165 Hz WQXGA display as the Legion 7i and the AMD Ryzen-powered Legion 5 Pro complete with DisplayHDR 400 certification and 100% sRGB coverage along with NVIDIA G-SYNC and Dolby Vision support. The Legion 5i Pro's display offers a 500-nit brightness and is TUV-certified for low blue light emissions.

Lenovo offers a choice between the Core i7-11800H and the Core i5-11400H Tiger Lake-H processors for the Legion 5i Pro. On the graphics front, buyers can choose between several options including the RTX 3050 (95 W), RTX 3050 Ti (95 W), RTX 3060 (130 W), and RTX 3070 (140 W) Laptop GPUs. Up to 32 GB DDR4-3200 can be configured along with up to a 1 TB PCIe Gen4 SSD. 

Unlike the Legion 7i that comes with a Corsair iCUE RGB keyboard, the Legion 5i Pro offers a choice between a white, blue, and 4-zone RGB backlit keyboards, so there's no Legion TrueStrike fast input. Lenovo Coldfront 3.0 cooling thermal system and Legion AI Engine are also offered.

Port selection is similar to that of the Legion 7i including two Thunderbolt 4 ports. Some niceties such as Nahimic Audio and Killer AX1650 Wi-Fi are omitted in order to keep the cost down although Lenovo does offer the regular Intel Wi-Fi 6 2x2 connectivity with Bluetooth 5.1.

The Lenovo Legion 5i Pro will be available in Storm Grey and Stingray White color options and will start at US$1,329.99 with expected availability from June 2021.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
