Unveiled in early January at CES 2019, the Lenovo Legion Y9000K is now finally launching in China. This machine seems to be exclusively targeting the local market and features an 8th generation (could be an error instead of 9th generation) Intel Core i7 processor, a 17-inch 144 Hz display, as well as NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics.

The Lenovo Legion Y9000K might sound a bit exotic, but this gaming laptop was unveiled back in early January at CES 2019. However, it looks like this machine will be available exclusively in China. Earlier today, Lenovo unveiled a few Legion laptops — such as the updated Y7000 and Y7000P — alongside the aforementioned model, but the details regarding the processors and video cards used should become public tonight.

The images that surfaced on Weibo earlier today are not accompanied by many details, but the short text can be fortunately translated to a comprehensible paragraph. According to it, the processors and graphics cards used for each of the new Lenovo Legion portables will be detailed by Intel and NVIDIA in a press conference that is scheduled to kick off in a few hours.

Back in January, it was announced that the Lenovo Y9000K would come with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 mobile processor, a 17-inch 144 Hz display, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics. However, today's presentation also included a slide that contains references to Intel Core i7 9th generation processors, as well as both NVIDIA GeForce GTX and RTX graphics adapters.

These being said, we will probably find out everything about the Lenovo Legion Y9000K and its companions later today. Thankfully, the updated Y7000 family should hit other markets as well. By the looks of it, the Y9000K might be a localized/slightly different version of the Legion Y740-17.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
