Lenovo will be the official desktop, laptop, and monitor sponsor of Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege Pro Leage and Major eSports tournaments this year. Both the companies have partnered to offer a great experience for professional gamers who will be competing against each other in a game that engages more than 30 million players and eSports enthusiasts worldwide.

Some of the devices that Lenovo will be equipping the Rainbow Six Siege tournaments include the Legion Y720 tower, Legion Y720 and Y520 notebooks, and the Legion Y25f gaming monitor. The Legion Y720 tower comes in both Intel and AMD options but Lenovo has not mentioned which variant would be deployed. The Legion Y720 tower is yet to receive the Intel 8th generation and AMD Ryzen 2 upgrades so most likely, the deployed systems will be powered either by an Intel Core i7-7700 or an AMD Ryzen 7 1800X with the GPU being either an AMD Radeon RX 570 4 GB or an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8 GB. Lenovo says that the Legion Y720 tower's powerful internals enable smooth frame rates complemented by the Legion Y25f 144 Hz gaming monitor.

The Legion notebooks are yet to receive their generational upgrades as well but the available configurations can ably play Rainbox Six Siege without any hiccups. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 in the Legion Y720 notebook can easily hit an average of 113 fps in FHD Ultra while the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti in the Legion Y520 achieves a respectable 74 fps in the game at FHD Ultra so both notebooks cover the basics for competitive gaming. 

Lenovo will be showcasing its Legion hardware during the Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Pro League Season 7 finals, which will take place at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City Hotel and Casino on May 19 and 20. The finalists include two teams each from North America, EMEA, Asia Pacific, and Latin America. The Lenovo-Ubisoft partnership will stand during the whole of League season from Spring 2018 till Spring 2019 across the aforementioned regions.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
