Rumor | Lenovo's latest IdeaCentre Gaming desktop is on the way
Lenovo already has an IdeaCentre Gaming 5 desktop; now, ITHome claims that it has updated it with a new, Alder Lake-based 17IAB7 variant. The Chinese media site claims to have learned that it has upgraded internals as well as an all-new design.
Nevertheless, the report contains new renders that could be official marketing images for the IdeaCentre line's alleged new addition. It shows a trim-looking desktop with a different faceplate to the current Gaming 5 model, with its RGB in different places, mainly found in its new front-facing fins and in its side-mounted logo.
ITHome intimates that it will be powered by either the Core i5-12400 or i7-12700 - or, possibly, the F-variants of either CPU. There is similar variance as to the supposedly upcoming desktop's graphics card: apparently, there could be options with not merely the AMD RX 6400 or RX 6500 XT, but also NVIDIA's GTX 1650, GTX 1660 Super, RTX 3060 or RTX 3060 Ti.
The IdeaCentre Gaming 5 (17IAB7) is also now projected to offer DDR4 RAM and will have space for 2 3.5-inch hard drives as well as 1 M.2 SSD. It might count 1 USB type-C (with 3.2 Gen 1 speeds) among its front-facing ports. Then again, ITHome neglects to mention the price at which this alleged PC might be listed.
