It sports a 16-inch IPS display with 16:10 aspect ratio, NVIDIA G-SYNC, 100 percent sRGB colour accuracy, 90 percent screen-to-body ratio and Dolby Vision.
The company says that the AI Engine inside the laptop optimizes system performance via machine learning and brings to its customers the highest possible frame rates whether your game is CPU or GPU-intensive.
“The Lenovo Legion AI Engine is our smarter combination of best-in-class hardware, software, and machine learning that work together to overclock your PC’s performance by routing Thermal Design Power (TDP) between the CPU and GPU to achieve maximum frames per second (FPS) in different games,” the company said.
