Lenovo Amid First Ryzen 9 4900H Adopters With Legion Slim 7

Not long after AMD took the wraps off its Ryzen 9 4900H, mathematically the most powerful mobile central processing unit ever created, Chinese laptop maker Lenovo jumped on the first opportunity to leverage this impressive silicon.

In fact, it ended up being one of the first companies to do so. Which brings us to today’s announcement of the Legion Slim 7, Lenovo’s latest Windows 10 laptop catering specifically to aficionados of video games. Besides the powerful AMD processor in question, Lenovo’s newest ultrabook also features the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, a Max-Q design GPU allowing for real-time ray-tracing on the go.

Interestingly, the company opted against using the second-generation ray-tracing GPUs from NVIDIA which just got announced several weeks ago under the RTX 30 Series brand. That is most likely a result of recent shortages, however, and not an outright technological or product design decision.

Anyway, this 15-inch gaming powerhouse will be available for purchase in the United States in just a few days’ time, with its official release window being late October. It will start at approximately $1,369.99, according to Lenovo’s MSRP information, so better start saving if you’re hoping to pick up one of the top configurations, though this introductory price isn’t that steep relative to the competition.
