The Lenovo Legion 7 16ACH offers automatic CPU and GPU overclocking
Lenovo opts for a gray (Storm Gray) aluminum case with matte, smooth surfaces for the Legion 7. Lighting elements (LED strip on the bottom, illuminated air vents) that run in sync with the keyboard backlighting provide for color variations. The illuminated "Y" in the Lenovo logo on the lid's back also contributes to the light show.
The test device provided to us is one of the top models in the lineup. The Ryzen 9 5900HX APU, the GeForce RTX 3080 graphics core (max TGP: 165 watts), 32 GB of RAM (dual-channel mode, max 64 GB), two 1 TB NVMe SSDs (can be accessed separately, no RAID array), and a great display equip the computer for all common applications for the next few years.
The laptop brings all the latest games smoothly onto the screen. The full screen resolution (2560x1600 pixels) and high to maximum quality settings can usually be selected. Compared with the RTX 3080 laptops that we have tested so far, the Legion 7 performs very well, delivering frame rates above average. Furthermore, automatic overclocking of the CPU and GPU can be enabled in the laptop's BIOS, which has an impact on benchmarks.
The 16-inch display (WQXGA, IPS, 165 Hz) in the 16:10 format left a very good impression. It offers high brightness, good contrast, HDR, stable viewing angles, fast response times, good color reproduction, and very decent color-space coverage. In addition, FreeSync and G-Sync are supported.
