The Legion Y920 is Lenovo's most powerful gaming notebook yet
Lenovo's Legion Y series of gaming notebooks will soon feature a new, more powerful member in its ranks. The Legion Y920 is billed by the company as its "most powerful gaming notebook to date" and it is coming next month.
This "pro-level" notebook features a 1080p, 17.3-inch IPS display with Nvidia G-Sync. Powering that screen is, first and foremost, a GeForce GTX 1070 with 8 GB of GDDR5 RAM, more than enough for the Y920's display resolution. The rest of the specs include:
- A choice between an Intel Core i7-7700HQ or an overclockable i7-7820HK processor
- 16 GB of RAM (type and speed yet to be determined)
- 512 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD storage
- Killer Wireless-AC 1535 wireless card
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 3x USB 3.0 ports, plus a Thunderbolt port
- Ports for HDMI and Display Port
- A 6-in-1 card reader
- Windows 10
Like many newer, high-end laptops, the Y920 doesn't neglect the quality of its audio. It has two 2W JBL speakers and a 3W bass subwoofer powered by Dolby's built-in Home Theater Audio solution. Also, for those who aren't too fond of chiclet keys, you'll be happy to know that the Y920 features a much more satisfying backlit mechanical keyboard with full RGB lighting. Finally, the notebook includes a built-in webcam; unfortunately, it captures video at only 720p.
The Lenovo Legion Y920 doesn't have a precise launch date aside from the already-mentioned June timeframe. It does have an exact price, though. The notebook starts at $2,699, likely for the model with the 7700HQ. Additional details should be available as the Y920's release date draws closer.
