Lenovo Legion Gaming PCs feature RTX 40 cards that look like Radeon Vega
Likely that many of our readers haven’t yet come across these Legion graphics cards yet. There are a couple of reasons for this. Lenovo’s Legion graphics cards are specifically tailored for prebuilt gaming PCs, and the newest versions of these systems are exclusively available in the Asian market. Notably, Lenovo has yet to introduce its Legion PCs featuring the latest hardware in the United States, as they still rely on the RTX 30 series.
On the other hand, in China, Lenovo has been offering a range of prebuilt gaming systems equipped with Intel Core processors. These systems, known as the 7000K and 9000K, have recently received upgrades to accommodate the 14th Generation Core desktop CPUs.
What unites all Legion PCs is their use of Intel CPUs and the powerful GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs (with only a minor exception known as RX 7600). Each card boasts a sleek gunmetal finish and a sharp cooling design featuring either two or three fans. Some models even incorporate vapor chambers and a triple-slot design to house substantial heatsinks. Notably, the design of the Legion GPUs bears a striking resemblance to AMD Vega designs.
Over last year, Lenovo has introduced a full range of graphics cards, including the RTX 4090, RTX 4080, RTX 4070 Ti, RTX 4060 Ti, and RTX 4060 models, covering almost every model within NVIDIA series. Notably, there doesn’t appear to be a 16GB variant for the RTX 4060 Ti at this time; it may either not be available yet or is scheduled for a later release.
Furthermore, is launching a Legion Radeon GPU, specifically the RX 7600, which comes equipped with a dual-fan design. This design bears some resemblance to the RTX 4060 Ti, except for the absence of the backplate. What is important to note, this is actually the first RDNA3 Lenovo GPU to launch.
It’s worth noting that none of the Legion GPUs are available through the DIY market; they are exclusively available as components within Legion prebuilt systems that utilize the 13th and 14th Generation Core series processors. As for the pricing of the 2024 systems systems:
