Lenovo has entered the Windows handheld gaming space with the Legion Go.
A cross between the ROG Ally and the Nintendo Switch, the Legion Go is a Windows 11-powered device with TrueStrike detachable controllers and kickstand and an 8.8-inch QHD+ display with 144Hz refresh rate and up to 500 nits brightness.
The Legion Go is powered by AMD’s Ryzen Z1 Series processor with AMD RDNA 3 graphics with up to 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM. It comes with up to 1TB of PCIe Gen4 SSD storage, while a microSD card slot lets you add up to 2TB cards.
For a smooth gameplay, Lenovo equipped the Legion Go with Coldfront thermal tech, featuring a liquid crystal polymer 79-blade fan that keeps the device cool at less than 25dB of fan noise in Quiet Mode.
The device’s 49.2Wh battery supports Super Rapid Charge that can juice up the battery up to 70% in just half an hour. Gaming while charging? The Lenovo Legion Go has a power bypass mode that protects the battery from extra degradation and reduces charging heat.
The Lenovo Legion Go will start at $699 for the base model. No word yet if it will be made available locally.
