Lenovo Legion 7 16ACHg6 in review: Gaming powerhouse with good 16:10 display
The Legion 7 16ACHg6 brings all the latest computer games smoothly onto the matte 16-inch screen (2560x1600 pixels, 165 Hz, IPS) in the 16:10 format. Furthermore, its equipment is good: The Ryzen 9 5900HX APU, the GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU, 32 GB of RAM, and 2x 1 TB NVMe SSDs.

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.

More information and many benchmark results can be found in the review of the Lenovo Legion 7 16ACHg6 (82N60099GE).

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
