Lenovo announces new Ryzen 3000-powered Legion gaming desktops
Lenovo has just launched its new Legion-series notebooks powered by Ryzen 4000 APUs. However, there are those who would prefer a form-factor that typically supports powerful multi-tasking (such as content-consumption with added gaming) and the flexibility to use any available or wish-list display. In addition, desktop PCs are increasingly popular among those spending more time at home for all reasons these days.
For these consumers, Lenovo will soon offer the Legion Tower 5 and IdeaCentre Gaming 5. The former can be configured with the Ryzen 9 3950X, whereas the latter is equipped with the 7 3700X. The Tower 5 has 2 PCIe SSDs that support up to 1TB in capacity each.
It also boasts 2 slots for up to 2TB 3.5-inch HDDs, and is rated to support up to 128GB 3200MHz DDR4 RAM. The new IdeaCentre, on the other hand, has space for up to 32GB DDR4 RAM. This desktop is also rated for improved cooling that also runs quieter (compared to what, though, Lenovo did not specify).
These new PCs are projected to be available from September 2020. The Tower 5 has a guide-price of €999 (~US$1144) for its most powerful configuration, whereas the IdeaCentre Gaming 5 will start at €799 (~$915).
