The new Lenovo Legion line for 2021 promises a exciting few things across the collection, starting with an 18% improvement on airflow when compared to the previous generation of Legion gaming laptops. This is credited to something called the Legion Coldfront 3.0 thermals that can improve both heat and noise management.

AI is also being integrated into the laptops to automatically enable the best settings and framerates for your game, making for a more seamless experience when you’re playing. This Lenovo Legion AI engine promises to channel power between your CPU and GPU for optimal performance based on what style of game you’re playing.
