Lenovo has launched a new VR-ready gaming notebook aimed at enthusiasts, the Legion Y920. The notebook features a 17-inch 1920 x 1080 Full HD IPS display with NVIDIA G-Sync support and a high 75 Hz native refresh rate.
Powering the Lenovo Legion Y920 is Intel’s Core i7-7700HQ processor. If you want even higher performance, the notebook does come with the option of a Core i7-7820HK, the most powerful processor Intel currently ships for notebooks. It also includes 16GB of DDR4 RAM and up to a 512GB solid state drive with a 1TB mechanical hard drive for your storage requirements. The graphics are powered by NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070, which packs more than enough performance to deliver a butter-smooth gaming experience in 1080p at least for the next few years. For one-click overclocking, the Y920 comes with a dedicated “Turbo” key that launches the Turbo Boost utility from Lenovo.
Being a gaming notebook, the Legion Y920 features an impressive mechanical keyboard with customizable RGB LED backlighting. Connectivity wise, you get a full-size HDMI, DisplayPort, four USB 3.0 Type-A, Thunderbolt, an SD card reader, and a gigabit Ethernet port. Some of the other key highlights include Killer Wireless-AC 1535 + Killer LAN, an HD webcam, dual 2W JBL stereo speakers with a 3W subwoofer, and a 6-cell 90Wh battery.
The Lenovo Legion Y920 starts at approximately $2,700 in the US (Rs.1,75,000), making it one of the most expensive gaming notebooks out there with a GeForce GTX 1070 GPU. It is expected to begin shipping next month onwards.
