The Lenovo Legion Go: PC Gaming Power in the Palm of the Hand

Featuring up to an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor with AMD RNDA™ Graphics and smart power management technology, the Lenovo Legion Go runs Windows 11 and delivers a potent combo of console-rivalling graphics performance that bring games to life on its massive 8.8-inch QHD+ 16:10 Lenovo PureSight gaming display, giving gamers more immersive screen real estate. Capable of up to 500nits brightness and sporting a 97% DCI-P3 color gamut, the display is also adjustable to playstyle and situation, supporting resolutions from 1600p to 800p as well as 144Hz and 60Hz refresh rates. The 10-point touch screen enables natural and intuitive control, be it scrolling, tapping, or swiping. The Legion Go features up to 16GB LPDDR5X (7500Mhz) RAM with power management flexibility that delivers optimal gaming performance and faster loading times depending on the scenario, as well as an up to 1TB PCIe Gen4 SSD and micro-SD slot supporting up to 2TB of extra storage1.

All this gaming power itself needs some serious power to run, and the Lenovo Legion Go has volumes. With a 49.2Wh capacity battery, gaming sessions can go longer without needing to recharge. The Lenovo Legion Go also has support for Super Rapid Charge2, allowing the battery to recharge up to 70% in just half an hour. When gaming while plugged in, The Lenovo Legion Go includes a power bypass mode that protects the battery from extra degradation while also eliminating heat normally produced while charging. Lenovo Legion’s Coldfront thermal technology is of course present in the Lenovo Legion Go, featuring a liquid crystal polymer 79-blade fan that keeps the device cool at less than 25dB of fan noise in Quiet Mode when silence is paramount, while still allowing the device to reach a full 25W of TGP in Custom Mode when every bit of power is needed to win while preventing thermal throttling during extended gaming sessions.

The Lenovo Legion Go’s controllers feature hall effect joysticks that mean no joystick drift and minimal dead zones that maximize responsiveness and accuracy during grueling gaming sessions. Other inputs include an integrated trackpad, a large D-pad, an angled mouse wheel, and a total of 10 mappable shoulder buttons, triggers, and grip buttons. RGB lighting is present on the power button adorned with the iconic Lenovo Legion ‘O’ that switches colors to indicate the user-selectable fan mode, and customizable RGB rings around the joysticks add another layer of flair while also acting as a notification system for controller pairing. Even better, the Lenovo Legion Go’s Legion TrueStrike controllers are detachable to allow for more flexibility in playstyles, as well as enabling FPS mode for impromptu FPS gaming sessions. FPS mode allows the user to detach the controllers from the Lenovo Legion Go body and use the kickstand at the back to prop it up on the surface. The right detached controller is placed into an included controller base that attaches via magnet, and the optical eye at the bottom of the controller allows for more precise aiming and control necessary during competitive FPS games, akin to using a mouse.

The Lenovo Legion Go features dual USB Type-C® ports for convenient connectivity, allowing users to dock and charge the device while simultaneously connecting accessories, thanks to plug-and-play features supporting DisplayPort 1.4 and Power Delivery 3.0 support. Connectivity extends to Wi-Fi 6Eas well as Bluetooth® 5.2 support.
