Lenovo is set to revolutionize the world of gaming laptops with its latest release, the Lenovo Legion 9i. This cutting-edge device not only marks a significant milestone in Lenovo’s Legion ecosystem but is also the world’s first gaming laptop to feature an integrated liquid-cooling system.
Raw power is the driving force behind the Legion 9i, boasting an impressive arsenal of components that make it a force to be reckoned with. Equipped with a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13980HX processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, and a remarkable 64GB Overclocked 5600Mhz Dual Channel DDR5 RAM, this laptop is built to deliver exceptional performance. However, it’s not just about the specs, but also how these components work together that truly sets it apart.
The standout feature of the Legion 9i is its Legion Coldfront integrated liquid-cooling system, developed in collaboration with Cooler Master. This innovative system enables the laptop to unleash a maximum of 230W TDP while maintaining a remarkably lightweight design, weighing in at just 2.56kg (5.64 lbs). By running over the GPU VRAM, the liquid-cooling system keeps the GPU cool under pressure, ensuring smooth and uninterrupted gaming sessions.
To accommodate the added weight of the liquid-cooling system, Lenovo engineers have introduced a forged carbon A-cover. Not only does this save weight, but it also gives each Legion 9i a unique aesthetic pattern on the cover, further enhancing its appeal.
The Legion 9i’s visuals are nothing short of stunning, thanks to its Lenovo PureSight 3.2K Mini-LED 16:10 Display with a 165Hz variable refresh rate. With options for DCI-P3 and sRGB color spaces and factory color calibration, content creators will be in awe of the precision and clarity this display offers. Additionally, with up to 2TB of PCIe (Gen 4) SSD storage, gamers will have ample space for their vast library of games and media.
One of the Legion 9i’s standout features is the Lenovo LA-2 AI chip, which dynamically adjusts power to the GPU and CPU to maintain maximum FPS in any gaming scenario. Together with the Legion Spectrum RGB lighting, it provides an immersive gaming experience that extends from the keyboard to the screen. The Tobii Horizon software adds an extra layer of immersion with gearless head tracking for gamers.
On the go, the Legion 9i is well-equipped with a powerful 99.99Whr battery, which can be charged using the included 330W Slim Adapter or the 140W Type-C Power adapter. For connectivity, Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.3 are provided by MediaTek’s Filogic 380 Wi-Fi card, offering up to 6.5Gbps of wireless speed.
The Legion 9i comes with Windows 11 pre-installed and a 3-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, making it an enticing choice for gamers. On top of that, Nahimic by SteelSeries enhances the gaming experience with immersive 3D audio and easy-to-adjust audio controls.
The Lenovo Legion 9i with an Intel processor is set to hit the market in October 2023, with prices starting at €4,499. With its cutting-edge features, innovation, and unrivaled performance, the Legion 9i is poised to make a significant impact on the gaming laptop market. Gamers around the world can look forward to unleashing their full gaming potential with this extraordinary device.
