Just in time for gamescom 2017 which is one of the biggest gaming event in the world, Lenovo has taken the opportunity to announce several new desktops under its gaming family, Legion. At the same time, the company has also announced a new gaming monitor as well.
Referred to as gaming towers rather than gaming desktop which is not surprising given their form factor, each of these new Legion systems are designed to cater different type of gamers. For example, the Legion Y920 Tower is made for users that are hungry for performance as it can be obtained with up to Intel Core i7-7700K, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, and two 512GB PCIe solid state drive.
For customers that love to overclock their system, they can also opt for 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2800 RAM and CPU liquid cooling solution from Asetek for their Legion Y920 Tower. If that sounds a little but too much, customers can choose the Legion Y720 Tower instead which offers up to Intel Core 7700 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 which still packed quite a punch.
The Legion Y720 Tower can also be obtained with AMD components including up to Ryzen 7 1800X CPU and Radeon RX 570 graphics card. Not to forget, the system also comes with 256GB PCIe solid state drive and 2TB SATA hard drive as well as up to 16GB DDR RAM.
Last but not least, there is also the Legion Y520 Tower which can be equipped with up to Intel Core i7-7700, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, 16GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB PCIe solid state drive and 2TB hard drive. All of these new Legion Towers are Oculus certified systems which means that they are compatible with Oculus Rift VR headset out of the box.
Price-wise, the Legion Y920 Tower with Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM starts at EUR 2,299 (about RM 11,607) while the variant with Asetek liquid cooling system goes from EUR 2,399 (about RM 12,112) onwards. As for Legion Y720 Tower and Y520 Tower, their starting prices are EUR 1,299 (about RM 6,559) and EUR 749 (about RM 3,782) respectively.
