CES 2021 | Lenovo updates the Legion 5 Pro to a 16:10 display, AMD Ryzen 5000 APUs and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 GPUs
The latest Legion 5 Pro is here, and it will offer an enticing set of components. Lenovo has upgraded the Legion 5 Pro to the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 series and to NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 30 GPUs, which should pack a punch. According to Lenovo, the new Legion 5 Pro will be configurable with up to Ryzen 7 APUs, but it has not stated which ones it plans to offer. Similarly, the manufacturer is quiet on what GPUs will power the new version of the Legion 5 Pro.
However, it has confirmed that the Legion 5 Pro will have a 16-inch display, seemingly the one with which it has also equipped the new Legion 7. The IPS panel operates natively at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels thanks to its 16:10 aspect ratio, and offers a 165 Hz refresh rate with as low as 3 ms response times. Additionally, the 16-inch display peaks at 500 nits, is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified, supports Dolby Vision, NVIDIA G-Sync and covers 100% of the sRGB colour space.
The new Legion 5 Pro will be available in Storm Grey and Stingray White, along with white, blue and 4-zone RGB backlit keyboards. All SKUs will measure 356 x 264.2 x 21.7 mm and 26.85 mm at its thickest point, although only some models will weigh its target weight of 2.45 kg. Lenovo has distributed ports across the left, right and rear of the chassis, but it will only offer the Legion 5 Pro with up to 16 GB of RAM.
The Legion 5 Pro 16ACH-06 will be orderable from March 2021 in Europe where it will start at €1,399. Lenovo will release the machine in other markets, including the US, though.
