Advancing gaming performance with AI-powered innovation and brand new thermal design

In the dynamic Asia Pacific gaming market, Lenovo continues to innovate with gamers’ wants and needs at the forefront. As the demand for high-performance gaming laptops grows, Lenovo recognises the need for machines that can effortlessly handle AAA games while managing overheating issues.

Exclusive to the Intel-based Lenovo Legion 7i and Lenovo Legion 5i, Lenovo introduced the Legion “Coldfront: Hyper” thermal solution, engineered to address the challenge of managing heat within gaming laptops. By transforming the airflow within the chassis and channelling hot air from the chips through a central hyperbaric chamber, the Legion “Coldfront: Hyper” system optimises heat exchange. The bottom D-cover ensures that hot air remains separate from the cold air drawn in by dual fans, resulting in cooler hardware and higher framerates for gamers.

Also found on Lenovo LOQ laptops, the new hyperchamber thermal technology keeps processors cooler, drawing out up to an additional 25W of power in Extreme Mode while keeping skin temperatures up to 2°C cooler, and lowering fan noise by up to 2dB compared to its last generation.

The latest Lenovo gaming lineup introduces fully user-customizable AI-assisted performance boosts, setting a new standard for peak power efficiency and unparalleled gaming experiences. The latest generation of Lenovo’s Legion and Lenovo LOQ gaming laptops come equipped with the Lenovo LA AI Core Chips, enabling higher FPS and improved power efficiency, ensuring that gamers have access to top-tier gaming experiences.
