Lenovo releases the Ryzen 7 5800H- and RTX 3000-powered Legion 5 to the US market
Lenovo has announced the release of the 'AMD version' of the 2021 Legion 5 laptop to its first-party online store. This PC - also known as the Legion 5 Gen 6 AMD - has choices of Ryzen 5 5600H or 7 5800H processors, although only the latter is available through its new sales page.
This version of the latest Legion 5 has 2 SKUs, both of which have 15.6-inch IPS FHD+ 165Hz displays, 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, 720p web-cams, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 and its brand's TrueStrike keyboard. However, one has 6GB of RTX 3060 graphics, whereas the other has 8GB of RTX 3070 instead.
Accordingly, the former is now priced at US$1600, whereas the other is $1,750. Then again, the 3060-enabled model has an additional 1TB SDD, for a grand total of 2TB of this storage, whereas the more expensive model has only 1.
However, Lenovo US does state that the '3070' model will be available to ship in 1 business day, whereas its only other Legion 5 Gen 6 AMD variant does not ship for 10 to 12 days following an order. Alternatively, the 5 (2020) with a still serviceable Ryzen 7 4800H processor, RTX 2060 graphics and a 144Hz display is still available on Amazon.
