Lenovo Legion 9i 16-inch Detailed Introduction
In an exciting announcement, Lenovo is set to redefine the gaming laptop landscape with its latest innovation – the Lenovo Legion 9i. This 16-inch gaming powerhouse is not only a first in Lenovo’s Legion ecosystem but also a world-first, featuring an integrated self-contained liquid-cooling system.
The driving force behind the Legion 9i is raw power, equipped with a 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13980HX processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU, and an impressive 64GB Overclocked 5600Mhz Dual Channel DDR5 RAM. But it’s not just about specs; it’s how these components work together that sets it apart.
The Legion Coldfront integrated liquid-cooling system, a collaboration with Cooler Master, is the laptop’s standout feature. This system allows the Legion 9i to unleash a maximum of 230W TDP while maintaining a remarkably lightweight design, weighing in at just 2.56kg (5.64 lbs). It keeps the GPU cool under pressure by running over the GPU VRAM, turning it on when needed, ensuring smooth gaming sessions.
To accommodate the added weight of the liquid-cooling system, Lenovo engineers have introduced an innovative forged carbon A-cover. This not only saves weight but also gives each Legion 9i a unique aesthetic pattern on the cover.
The laptop’s visuals are nothing short of stunning, thanks to the Lenovo PureSight 3.2K Mini-LED 16:10 Display with a 165Hz variable refresh rate. With DCI-P3 and sRBG color space options and factory color calibration, content creators will love the precision and clarity this display offers. With up to 2TB of PCIe (Gen 4) SSD storage, there’s ample room for an extensive 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. It syncs with the Legion Spectrum RGB lighting, providing an immersive 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 ready with a 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 and a 3-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, making it a fantastic choice for gamers. Nahimic by SteelSeries enhances the gaming experience with immersive 3D audio and easy-to-adjust audio controls.
The Lenovo Legion 9i with Intel processor is set to hit the market in October 2023, with prices starting at €4,499. With its cutting-edge features and innovation, it’s sure to make a significant impact on the gaming laptop market.
