Lenovo has introduced their highest-end gaming laptops for 2022. The 16-inch Legion 7 and 7i (the I designates Intel CPUs) can be customized with the most up-to-date processors and graphics. The Legion 7 is one of only a handful gaming laptops available with AMD’s Ryzen 9 6900HX processor and Radeon RX6850M XT graphics. It can be equipped with Intel’s 12th Gen Core i9-12900HX processor and Nvidia’s RTX 3080 Ti graphics card, which boasts a staggering 175W of total graphics power.

Features of Legion 7 and 7i

In addition to being more powerful, the Legion 7-series machines offer a few extra features over the Legion 5 Pro from 2022.

It has a 1080p webcam rather than 720p, and a larger 99.99Wh battery. Depending on whether you choose the Intel-based Legion 7i or the AMD-based Legion 7, each model comes with a QHD 16:10 aspect ratio display with a 165Hz refresh rate and Dolby Vision HDR, as well as compatibility for either Nvidia G-Sync or AMD FreeSync Premium. You may also upgrade the screen to a 240Hz QHD panel with variable refresh rate capabilities (VRR).

Another fascinating feature to look out for with the Legion 7i is the ability to overclock its RAM. The DDR5 RAM has a base clock speed of 4,800MHz, however if you choose the 32GB variant, it will have a higher clock speed. (the maximum it can support). It can be overclocked to an astonishing 5,600MHz.

The Legion 7i will be the first to be released, with a starting price of $2,449 in May. In June, the Legion 7 will be released, with a lower starting price of $2,059.

The Legion Slim 7 and 7i (shown at the top of the post) are the other half of Lenovo’s announcements, which keep many of the same features as the Legion 7 but in a thinner chassis with — predictably — less power. Lenovo is doing the same thing, releasing the Slim 7i in May for $1,589 and the Slim 7 in June for $1,519 each.

The Slim 7i, which is powered by Intel, gets the more interesting display options, with a QHD Mini LED among the alternatives. With the exception of a lower starting resolution of 1920 x 1200, the display settings are comparable to those found in the Legion 7 and 7i.

Other features of the Slim 7 and 7i that caught my eye include support for a 99.99Wh battery, albeit it starts with a 71Wh option. Also, I believe this is the only Legion laptop produced in 2022 with an SD card slot, a feature that Lenovo’s gaming-focused portfolio should embrace more broadly.

Several gaming laptops announced at CES 2022 are now available, with many more on the way. So far, Intel’s 12th Gen processors have provided significantly more possibilities, but AMD’s Ryzen 6000 H-series processors and new discrete GPUs might provide even more options.
