The model of the Lenovo Legion 7 on sale is the AMD version, as the clamshell is equipped with a Ryzen 9 6900HX processor and a Radeon RX 6850M XT GPU. These are some of the most powerful pieces of Team Red hardware you can find in a gaming laptop right now, with the former offering beastly performance comparable to Intel's i9-12900H and the latter going toe-to-toe with NVIDIA's mighty RTX 3080 (sadly, its raytracing performance is much worse, but most people can live without it). You can also look forward to 32GB of speedy 4800MHz DDR5 RAM and a whopping 2TB of PCIe Gen 4 SSD storage.
