Upgraded style and savagery
Desktop-caliber gaming on the go
Packed with incredible performance typically only available from desktops, up to 9th Gen Intel® Core™ laptop processors deliver desktop-caliber gaming that you can take anywhere. With up to 4.5GHz Turbo, 6 cores, and 12 threads, Legion laptops powered by these processors have enough power to handle demanding AAA games.
Trusted hardware, for legendary gaming
New PCs with Windows 10 and up to 9th Gen Intel® Core™ processors are designed to support the latest PC gaming experiences, from playing the newest titles in high definition to sharing HDR screenshots—all with Intel’s stunning media-rich graphics. *Get the winning advantage of speed, power, performance, and responsiveness. Plus, with a new PC, you can game on the go with a thinner, lighter system with amazing battery life.
*Battery life varies significantly with device, settings and usage.
A new way to experience games
NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 20* Series graphics deliver the ultimate gaming experience, with their Max-Q design enabling the world’s thinnest, fastest, and quietist gaming laptops. Powered by the revolutionary NVIDIA Turing™ GPU architecture, these powerful rigs fuse real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading to bring you a graphics experience unlike any other.
Gaming's evolution continues
The Lenovo Legion laptop design has evolved even further with the two sides of today’s gamers—stylish for work, savage for play. Housing epic specs in a precision-cut, all-aluminum chassis, the 15.6" Legion Y740 sports a clean look, weighs only 2.2 kg / 4.85 lbs, measures only 20 mm, and features Corsair® iCUE ambient system lighting. This laptop is engineered to defy expectations and shatter limits.
The Coldfront is here
Heat—the nemesis of gaming performance—is no longer a concern, thanks to Legion Coldfront. Coldfront brings the latest features that a dual-channel thermal system can provide, including individual CPU and GPU cooling for cooler system temperatures, four thermal vents for improved airflow, dedicated heat syncs for cooler keyboard temperatures, and 70 individual fan blades per channel to reduce system noise.
Focus on the game, not the bezels
The Legion Y740 15.6" display provides a near-edgeless visual experience, thanks to bezels that are considerably thinner than previous generations. You can keep your eyes where the action is—the FHD graphics rendering in more than 2 million pixels at refresh rates up to 144 Hz and brightness levels up to 500 nits. You’ll get an amazingly immersive experience from the tear-free video of optional NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology and Dolby® Vision™ High Dynamic Range (HDR).
Your eyes deserve Dolby
Don’t just look at your favourite games—be truly moved by them. Dolby Vision™ HDR transforms your gaming experience on the Legion Y740 with ultravivid imaging—incredible brightness, contrast, and colour that bring your favourite gaming titles to life before your eyes. It achieves this astonishing image quality through cinema-inspired HDR technology that can deliver billions of colours to your laptop wherever you are. The result is a refined, lifelike image that will make you forget you are looking at a screen.
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. Know where specific sounds are coming from and hear audio that heightens your sense of awareness and immerses you in a more intense gaming experience. The Legion Y740 comes with a custom-engineered Dolby® Atmos Sound Bar for Gaming with an integrated subwoofer and Smart AMP technology, for immersive sound with or without headphones.
Time to strike
Intense firefights require the most responsive of controls, and the Legion Y740 keyboard delivers best-in-class gaming controls to give you the edge over any opponent. Full-sized and top of the line, this keyboard delivers 100% anti-ghosting, Corsair® iCUE RGB lighting, less than 1 ms response time, and more for ultimate control of your system, plus a water repellent to protect against spills. Further, the Legion Y740 features Windows Precision drivers with gesture control for effortless input whether at work or play.
