At Lenovo, design, performance and quality are our number one goals. And considering that in no other category are laptops and computers examined as closely by potential buyers as in gaming, that’s a good thing for us.
As our Lenovo Legion brand of menacingly-powerful gaming laptops and gaming desktops increasingly find their way into the welcoming arms of gamers ranging from casual players to intense esports competitors, we’re proud to partner with AMD to bring their exclusive brand of power and performance to Legion and other Lenovo gaming PCs.
AMD Ryzen processors and AMD Radeon graphics cards are immensely popular and trusted components in today’s gaming landscape. For those who prefer to build their own devices or for those who prefer to let a trusted computer manufacturer do the building for them, AMD processors and graphics are increasingly sought after for their stability, reliability, and power.

With design and power combined in one Lenovo AMD gaming PC, you can keep your focus on the action and off any performance worries.
The benefits of an AMD gaming laptop
Now that you’ve read all about Lenovo’s AMD offerings, it’s time to decide if you want the mobility of an AMD Ryzen gaming laptop or a more stationary offering in AMD gaming PCs.
Some gaming laptop manufacturers will have you believe that you can’t have your cake and eat it too, or that you can’t have a gaming laptop that’s customizable, more upgradeable or one that can be as powerful as a gaming desktop when outfitted correctly.
At Lenovo, we’re here to tell you they’re wrong.
Some of the best AMD gaming laptop models at Lenovo offer immense power and features in the form of available AMD Ryzen processors, 16GB of memory, and NVIDIA discrete graphics. What game won’t run at optimal levels on all that? Few if none, that’s for sure. Plus you’ll easily see what all that power can do on a vibrant full HD, 1920 x 1080, 1080p display with a high refresh rate.
What’s more, while our competitors tend to solder on nearly every component, forcing you to upgrade your entire gaming laptop every few years, we leave more of these critical components interchangeable so that your Lenovo gaming laptop withstands the test of time.
Plus, they’re great for work too, with Windows Pro and all of the rich business features that come with it available on select models. And with a unique design featuring a more subtle aesthetic, the Legion range of gaming/work laptops isn’t as over-the-top as some of our competitors’ offerings.
Legion laptops combine a refined style with raw power underneath, meaning you’ll be as comfortable and capable in the boardroom as you would your gaming station at home. But not to worry, as customizable RGB lighting is available, yet more in your control. You can trigger an array of colors on both the keyboard and laptop frame on many models when and where you choose.
There are simply a ton of advantages to choosing Lenovo for your AMD gaming pc bundle needs. Like higher-than-standard battery life perfect for those long days crossing campus from one classroom to the next. Did we mention that they’re great for school as well? Why not have a single device that’s as powerful enough for high-tech major needs as it is for the favorite games you play?
Ready to get started? You can customize one of our Legion AMD gaming laptops to your preferred specifications or search for a ready-to-ship model that may be on the road to your door in as little as a single business day. Whichever way you go, Lenovo has your laptop gaming needs covered.
The benefits of an AMD gaming desktop
Much like our gaming laptop offerings, at Lenovo, you can select an AMD prebuilt gaming PC to your liking or customize one to your specific preferences.
You always get more control with Lenovo. And while we’re on that note, let’s talk about how Legion gaming desktops give you more control.
Our assortment of AMD Ryzen gaming PC models does have their benefits as compared to gaming laptops. Gaming desktop towers are simply larger, and thus will always be more customizable and upgradeable than a traditional gaming laptop. This additional space allows for more cooling, storage capacity, memory, and especially more dynamic customization – the likes of which dedicated gamers strive for.
A Legion AMD gaming computer tower features glass displays and robust lighting effects that shine inside and out. So unlike the more reserved style of our gaming laptops, Legion desktops go all-in with style and effects that are going to go great with your epic game room.
It comes down to personal preference. Do you want a do-all gaming laptop for home or go? Or do you hope to join the elite sports competitors and streamers of the day by building a PC gaming setup around an ultra-powerful Legion desktop? Or you can opt for a small form factor AMD gaming PC to have a robust processor in a compact unit.
So choose wisely, but rest assured that no matter your path forward, a Lenovo AMD gaming PC won’t let you down.
AMD Gaming PC vs Intel Gaming PC
One of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make when picking your gaming computer is picking your Central Processing Unit (CPU). There are two CPU powerhouses on the market: Intel and AMD. When you’re shopping for a prebuilt gaming PC AMD and Intel-powered CPUs will be your best bet.
Although Intel was the industry leader for a long time, more and more people are opting for an AMD gaming PC build. The AMD Ryzen 5 gaming PC revitalized the CPU game and brought AMD up to Intel’s caliber. Now, AMD is pushing Intel to the side and becoming the leading processor for gaming computers.
AMD has always been the more affordable option, and now purchasing a prebuilt AMD gaming PC will get you a powerful CPU at a great price. You’ll be able to purchase more accessories or upgrades with the money you save by getting an AMD prebuilt gaming PC instead of a PC powered by an Intel CPU.
Many gamers prefer to play on a desktop because they offer enhanced flexibility and are highly customizable. Choosing between an Intel and AMD desktop gaming PC comes down to which provides better value without compromising multi-tasking and gaming performance. Ultimately, AMD packs a powerful punch and provides incredible overclocking without breaking the bank. An AMD 4K gaming PC build will revolutionize your gaming experience.
Choosing a CPU provider for a laptop differs from a desktop because laptops have a limited amount of space and their cooling systems aren’t as strong. However, gamers will end up choosing a laptop over a desktop because of the convenience of being able to game on the go. AMD’s Ryzen processors for laptops have beat out Intel’s Core processors in power comparison tests, and they’re still significantly cheaper than their competitors.
