Lenovo is adding two new gaming laptops to its AMD Ryzen 4000 portfolio with the announcement of the new 17-inch Legion 5 and 15.6-inch IdeaPad Gaming 3 models. Even though these two systems are announced together, availability dates will differ in the sense that the IdeaPad Gaming 3 will go on sale in late July, while the Legion 5 will start shipping in September.

The 17-inch Legion 5 has essentially the same specs from the 15.6-inch variant launched back in April this year. This means that Lenovo is offering the 144 Hz FHD screen with Dolby Vision HDR compatibility for the 17-inch version, along with 120 Hz FHD option. Furthermore, the dGPU is still limited to an RTX 2060 and the maximum RAM capacity is 16 GB DDR4-3200. The storage side includes one M.2 slot for an NVMe SSD with capacities up to 1 TB.

On the other hand, the IdeaPad Gaming 3 model is limited to a 15.6-inch FHD screen with 120 Hz refresh rate, but it still gets the HDR option. GPU options are further limited to a GTX 1650 Ti, and the storage solutions are the same from the Legion 5. However, the ideaPad 3 supports up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and also drops the TrueStrike gaming keyboard that is only featured with the Legion series.

Both models can be equipped with up to a Ryzen 7 4800H APU, yet starting prices are substantially different, as the Legion 5 prices start at US$1,089 and the IdeaPad Gaming 3 base configuration only costs US$659.

There is also a Legion 5P esport model with just the 15.6-inch 144 Hz FHD screen and up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, but this one will not be available in the U.S.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
