Lenovo's latest Legion gaming towers are ready to tackle VR with power
Lenovo has some new goodies for gamers with its latest Legion PCs revealed at Gamescom.
At Gamescom 2017, Lenovo has taken the opportunity to launch a trio of new tower PCs in its gaming-focused Legion lineup. All built to be VR-ready for gamers across the budget spectrum, each is packed with specs that should be able to play some of the latest games with ease.
At the top end is the Legion Y920, which is the beefiest of the three by far. The Y920 tower comes loaded with an Intel Core i7-7700K processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics, and 32GB of DDR4 RAM by default. RAM can be bumped up to 64GB if you desire, and offerings come in at up to two 512GB SSD drives or 4TB in SATA HDD storage.
In the middle of the road is the Legion Y720 tower, which steps things down a tad. With it, you'll get a choice of Intel's Core i7-7700 or i5-7400 processors, along with NVIDIA GRTX 1070, 1060, 1050Ti or AMD Radeon RX 570 graphics. RAM is offered at up to 64GB here, and storage comes at up to 512GB SSD or 2TB of SATA HDD.
Finally, the entry-level tower meant for console gamers looking to dip their toes into the PC world is the Legion Y520T. For processors, you have a variety of choices, ranging from a 7th-generation Intel Core i3 processor to either an i5 or i7. As for graphics chips, the Y520T offers more middling options, like the NVIDIA GTX 1060, GTX 1050Ti, or Radeon RX 560. Finally, you can add up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM here, along with up to 128GB of SSD or 2TB of HDD storage.
Lenovo says that all three towers will be hitting North America in October. The Legion Y920 will come in at $1,999.99, while the Y720 and Y520 will each go for $999.99 and $899.99, respectively. A version of the Y920 will also be offered with liquid cooling and a Legion Y25f outside of the U.S.
