Technology News – Thanks to the leak, we can see what the Lenovo laptop looks like when it is disassembled.
The specifications of the Lenovo Legion Go have been known for a long time, but for sure there was already a device before it that had an AMD Ryzen Z1 APU (processor and graphics chip integrated in a circuit), so the Asus ROG Ally can be considered the “mobile Legion” of its direct competitor. Thanks to popular hardware leaker Golden Pig Upgrade, we can see the laptop disassembled on a Chinese video-sharing site called Bilibilin, but based on the images, we can also check out the cooling solution without it.
The Lenovo product has internal components similar to mainstream laptops, but the cooling system is much more compact, and compared to the Asus device, it is clear how simple the Chinese company has chosen. The Legion Go uses only one fan to dissipate heat, while the ROG Ally uses two. The heatsink is made of aluminum and uses a single copper tube, while the Asus has two copper tubes and a single-core motherboard (there were overheating issues initially, but Asus managed to fix that with a firmware update).
Based on early tests, the temperature results for the Lenovo Legion Go are identical to those of the Asus ROG Ally, while using the same TDP (power consumption) while gaming, so there may be issues there as well. The battery is 49.2 Wh which is quite large compared to the device. We can see an AMD Z1 Extreme APU in the stripped device, which also has 16GB of LPDDR5X-7200 memory, a maximum of 1TB PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD, and we can fill in another 2TB of storage through the microSD slot in it. The design of the device looks good, but it’s big, yes, the screen is better… but how will early gamers react?
Lenovo Legion Go will be available in the US starting November 1. They’re asking at least $700 for the 512GB model, $750 for the 1TB version, and $800 for the 2TB version, so don’t even look for less than 280/300/320k HUF here. ..
