2022 Lenovo Legion 7i specs

The Lenovo Legion 7i 2022 version comes with the latest HX series of Intel 12th gen CPUs, which are the most powerful processors around, regardless of brand. As far as we’re aware, the lowest spec GPU you can equip the Lenovo Legion 7i with is the RTX 3070 Ti, which is significantly more powerful than the lowest spec Radeon RX 6700M option on the Legion 7, and also goes some way to explaining why the entry-level Intel version costs significantly more. That being said, the Legion 7i will likely lag behind its AMD counterpart when it comes to battery life.

Interestingly the Legion 7i has an option for higher clocked RAM: in addition to the 4800 MHz DDR5 option you get with the Legion 7 you can also go with the 5600 MHz if you want to push things to the max. Being an Intel machine it also has Thunderbolt ports, and, being Nvidia powered, has G-Sync instead of FreeSync.
