Lenovo Legion 9i with 16″ 3.2K Mini-LED 165Hz display, 13th Gen Core i9 processor, RTX 4090 GPU announced

Lenovo has introduced the latest Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 8), which is the first 16-inch gaming laptop in the Lenovo Legion lineup to feature a self-contained liquid-cooling system.

The Lenovo Legion 9i laptop has a 3.2K Mini-LED display with a 165Hz refresh rate and a 94% screen-to-body ratio. It also has an AI chip that adjusts power to the GPU and CPU, synchronizes RGB lighting, and provides head tracking for immersive gaming. The display is calibrated with X-Rite software for accurate colors.

The Lenovo Legion 9i runs on the latest Intel Core i9-13980HX processor and offers an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU. It provides a choice of 64GB Overclocked 5600Mhz DDR5 RAM or 32GB Overclocked 6400Mhz DDR5 RAM, and up to 2TB PCIe (Gen 4) SSD storage.

Equipped with the Legion Coldfront integrated liquid-cooling system developed with Cooler Master, the laptop handles up to 230W TDP. This system cools the GPU during intense gaming sessions and is complemented by a triple-fan air-cooling setup with 6,333 intake vents, ensuring cool performance during demanding tasks.

Lenovo created a lightweight A-cover from forged carbon chips to support the liquid-cooling system’s weight. This also gives each Legion 9i laptop a unique pattern. Despite these additions, the laptop’s weight is just 2.56kg.

The Legion 9i features a 99.99Whr battery, chargeable via the included 330W Slim Adapter or 140W Type-C Power adapter. It offers Wi-Fi 74 and Bluetooth 5.3 through MediaTek’s Filogic 380 Wi-Fi card, delivering wireless speeds up to 6.5Gbps.

Nahimic by SteelSeries provides immersive 3D audio with adjustable controls. The laptop comes with Windows 11 and a 3-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Lenovo Vantage software provides real-time performance dashboards, overclocking controls, and intelligent fan controls. Legion Arena consolidates games from various platforms, and optional Lenovo Premium Care support is available.

The Lenovo Legion 9i with Intel processor is priced at 4,499 Euros (USD 5,422 or Rs. 4,48,420 approx.) and is expected to be available starting October 2023.
