A new way to experience games
NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ delivers the ultimate laptop gaming experience. These sleek, powerful gaming rigs are powered by the new NVIDIA® Turing GPU architecture and the revolutionary RTX platform. RTX graphics bring together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading.
Gaming has a new look
Gone are the bulky gaming laptops of old, now is the time to embrace a machine that is worthy of you—stylish on the outside, savage on the inside. Starting at .98” / 25mm thin and 2.8kg / 6.17lbs in weight, the 17” Legion Y540 was redesigned to deliver the ideal balance between epic gaming performance and practical portability.
Even more muscle per millimeter
Expert craftsmanship extends beyond design. The Y540 represents the culmination of thousands of engineering hours to deliver a laptop that is both powerful and thin. Supporting DDR4 memory, PCIe SSD storage, and more, our engineers combined their expertise in battery, I/O placement, thermals, and motherboard design to pack the best hardware into one powerful gaming laptop.
Designed for what comes next
Limitless potential awaits you in the Legion Y540 Laptop with an integrated upgrade system. With its streamlined design mechanism, the Legion Y540 requires only two screws to remove the bottom panel. This gives you access to the motherboard for effortless upgrading or swapping out of components, including RAM, hard drive, and solid-state drive storage.
Take your games to the edge
With its thin bezels, the Legion Y540 packs more than 2 million pixels into a near-edgeless 17.3” FHD display. Combined with up to 144Hz refresh rate, 300 nits of brightness, and an IPS antiglare screen, this laptop brings your favourite games to life, for immersive gameplay on the go.
Go inside the action
Dolby Atmos® pulls you into the game with powerful, moving audio that sweeps all around and above you with amazing precision and realism. A leap forward from surround sound, it gives you a competitive edge via the new Sound Radar overlay, which shows you where specific game sounds are coming from, with audio that heightens your sense of awareness and immerses you in a more intense gaming experience.*
*Dolby Atmos available when using headphones.
Time to strike
Intense firefights require the most responsive of controls. The Legion Y540 laptop's keyboard delivers best-in-class gaming controls, giving you the edge over any opponent. Full-sized and top of the line, the keyboard delivers 100% anti-ghosting, laser-engraved WASD highlights, less than 1ms response time, white backlighting, and more, for ultimate control of your system. Further, the Legion Y540 brings Windows Precision drivers with gesture control, for effortless input whether at work or play.
