Lenovo introduces its latest flagship gaming notebook, the Legion 9i, aiming to redefine gaming experiences with cutting-edge technology. At the heart of this powerhouse lies a 175-watt Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090, ingeniously cooled with an ultrathin water cooling system, ensuring optimal performance within a sleek and slender design. Lenovo, however, doesn’t stop at the GPU; every aspect of this gaming laptop is meticulously crafted for excellence.
This extraordinary Legion gaming laptop made its debut at IFA 2023, capturing the attention of gaming enthusiasts and creative professionals alike. The 16-inch 16:10 display boasts a rapid 165 Hz refresh rate, incorporating Nvidia G-Sync technology. Notably, the panel stands out for its exceptional color accuracy, covering 100% of both DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color spaces.
The integration of a mini-LED backlight elevates brightness to an impressive 1,200 nits, while Dolby Atmos support enhances the laptop’s HDR content capabilities. With a sharp 3,200 x 2,000-pixel resolution, visuals come to life with unparalleled clarity.
What truly sets the Legion 9i apart is its integrated liquid cooling system, collaborating with three fans to manage a substantial power loss of 230 watts. This innovative solution activates the water cooling mechanism only when the GPU reaches a temperature of 84 degrees Celsius, ensuring efficient and targeted cooling.
Driving this beast is the Intel Core i9-13980HX, currently Intel’s fastest laptop processor, boasting 24 cores and clock frequencies soaring up to 5.6 GHz. Coupled with this powerful CPU is the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU, equipped with 16 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory and operated with a power loss of 150 watts, complemented by an additional 25 watts of dynamic boost.
Buyers are presented with options, including 32 GB LPDDR5-6,400 or 64 GB LPDDR5-5,600 RAM and a PCIe 4.0 SSD that can scale up to a capacious 2 TB. Connectivity is not a concern, thanks to the inclusion of Wi-Fi 7 paired with Bluetooth 5.1. The laptop offers a plethora of ports, featuring three USB-C (two supporting Thunderbolt 4), two USB-A, HDMI 2.1, RJ45, and an SD card reader, ensuring seamless connectivity for various peripherals.
Charging is effortless, utilizing the included 330-watt power supply or a versatile USB-C Power Delivery option supporting up to 140 watts. The Legion 9i boasts additional features, including an RGB-lit keyboard, a high-resolution 1,080p webcam, robust 2 x 2-watt stereo speakers, and a formidable 99.99 Wh battery. Despite its robust specifications, the laptop maintains a slender profile, measuring a maximum of 2.27 centimeters in depth and weighing a mere 2.56 kilograms.
