CES 2021 | The new Lenovo Legion 7 debuts with a flagship display, up to AMD Ryzen 9 APUs and NVIDIA's latest GeForce RTX 30 GPUs
Lenovo has announced a refresh of the Legion 7, the last version of which we reviewed just before Christmas. A lot has changed in a month though, as Lenovo has upgraded the Legion 7 to a larger display, along with more powerful CPUs and GPUs. The new model, which Lenovo has called the 16ACH-06, will be available from March and is planned to start at €1,799.
The Legion 7 16ACH-06 offers a 16-inch IPS panel that has a 16:10 aspect ratio and a native resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels. Additionally, the panel covers 100% of sRGB, is VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified, peaks at 500 nits and supports NVIDIA G-SYNC, along with Dolby Vision. It also has 3 ms response times with overdrive enabled and can operate at 165 Hz.
The machine itself measures 356 x 261 mm and 23.5 at its thickest point. However, the chassis tapers to 20.1 mm at the front of the device. Lenovo also states that the new Legion 7 will start at 2.5 kg and will only be available in Storm Grey. A 300 W slim power adapter recharges the machine, which will target an 8 hour battery life.
The Legion 7 16ACH-06 will be one of Lenovo's flagship laptops of 2021, and as such it features up to AMD Ryzen 9 5000 series APUs. Additionally, the laptop will offer NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs, up to 32 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and a 2 TB M.2 NVMe SSD. You can view the full I/O that the new Legion 7 will offer below.
