Gamescom 2017 | Three new Lenovo Legion gaming desktops with corsair as sole memory supplier
Lenovo has been showing off three new VR-ready Legion gaming desktops at Gamescom 2017 using a similar naming scheme to their Legion laptops, giving us the Y520 Tower, Y720 Tower, and Y920 Tower in order of increasing price and performance. All three use Intel 7th generation Kaby Lake processors and NVIDIA GTX 1000 series 'Pascal' while the Y520 and Y720 have the option to also use AMD RX 500 series 'Polaris' graphics cards.
The Y520 Tower:
- CPU: Intel i3, i5, or i7 options from the i3-7100 to the i7-7700 (non-K).
- Storage: Up to 128 GB SSD and 2 TB HDD.
- Price: US$900 and upwards.
The Y720 Tower:
- CPU: Intel i5 or i7 options up to the i7-7700 (non-K).
- GPU: GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1060 6GB, GTX 1070 8 GB, or RX 570 8 GB.
- Storage: Up to 512 GB SSD and 2 TB HDD.
- Price: US$1000 and upwards.
The Y920 Tower:

Also announced was the Legion Y25f 24.5-inch monitor featuring a 400 nit brightness, one millisecond response time (not specified if this is black-to-white or gray-to-gray), and a refresh rate of 144 Hz.
Finally, Corsair was proud to say that they will be the sole memory provider to the Lenovo Legion gaming desktops. As one of the largest memory providers there shouldn't be any supply issues, and since Lenovo has selected the more overclocking friendly LPX models, we suspect that Lenovo might be hoping to provide a more consistent overclocking experience by using a single supplier.
