Today, Intel announced its ninth-generation 45W H-series CPUs, so now it's time for some actual products that use the new chips. Lenovo announced refreshes of its Legion Y540, Legion Y7000, Legion Y740, and IdeaPad L340 that all include the new processors.
Of course, none of the Legion PCs are new; these are just new configurations. The Legion Y740 still sits at the top, offering up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q along with up to a ninth-gen Core i7. It comes in 15- and 17-inch models and an option for a 144Hz 1080p display, and today, Lenovo is also introducing an option with a GTX 1660 Ti GPU.
The Legion Y540 also comes in 15- and 17-inch sizes, and it also comes with up to a ninth-gen Core i7. The GPU available is up to an RTX 2060. The Legion Y7000p is essentially a 15-inch Y540 in a different body, and it's a bit flashier for those that want that gaming look. It comes with up to a ninth-gen Core i7, and a choice between an RTX 2060, GTX 1660 Ti, and GTX 1650 GPU. There's also a new Legion Y7000, which has red lighting.
Finally, the IdeaPad L340 comes in 15- and 17-inch sizes, packing up to a ninth-gen Core i7, GTX 1650 graphics, and Dolby Audio. Obviously, this one is built for casual to mainstream gaming.
The Legion Y740 is coming in late May, with the 17-inch model starting at $1,669.99 and the 15-inch model starting at $1,609.99. The 15-inch Y540 with a GTX 1660 Ti will start at $1,209.99 in late May, while the 17-inch one will arrive in late June starting at $1,269.99. The Legion Y7000p with a GTX 1660 Ti will arrive in late May, starting at $1,199.99. Finally, the IdeaPad L340 will also arrive in late May, with the 15-inch model starting at $869.99 and the 17-inch model starting at $919.99.
