Last week, Lenovo announced some new additions to its line-up of Lenovo Legion gaming laptops fitted with Intel's freshly launched Comet Lake-H CPUs.
On the AMD front, the manufacturer has remained tight-lipped, but a new listing on Amazon Canada (that has since been removed) points towards similar models featuring an AMD Ryzen 4000 series CPU.
The listing showcases the Legion 5 Y550-15ARH, which looks very similar to its Intel counterpart, the Legion i5. Our understanding is that the different nomenclature points towards either the Intel or AMD variant.
The listing suggests the Legion 5 Y550-15ARH will feature an eight-core, sixteen thread, Ryzen 7 4800H with 8 MB of L3 cache, and 45 W TDP. It has a base clock speed of 2.9 GHz, jumping to a boost clock speed of 4.2 GHz.
On the visual front, the laptop has a 15.6-inch screen with a max resolution of 1080p with a 144 Hz refresh rate, 3 ms response time, 100% sRGB, a brightness of 300 nits, DisplayHDR400 certified, and support for Dolby Vision.
The model has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti housing 1,024 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1350 MHz, a boost clock speed of 1485 MHz, and 4GB of GDDR6 clocked at 12 Gbps. Legion 5 Y550's other specifications include 16 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 as well as 512 GB NMVe PCIe M.2 SSD. The Legion 5 Y550-15ARH weighs 2.5 kg and measures 35.9 cm x 26 cm x 2.5cm.
Coldfront 2.0 cooling appears to feature as well. Connectivity-wise, we are looking at four USB, Ethernet, HDMI, and Thunderbolt 3. Lenovo is also throwing in a Legion TrueStrike keyboard and Wi-Fi 802.11ax.
The listing prices the Legion 5 Y550 at just north of $1,400 Canadia dollars, which equates to around $1000 in US currency.
