on

Lenovo’s new gaming ecosystem debuted at CES 2024, with Microsoft Windows 11-based PCs, peripherals, software, and services that deliver on power, thermals, graphics, AI-powered advantages, and the freedom to build the ultimate system to game. The new PC portfolio includes the following new 9th generation Lenovo Legion 16-inch gaming laptops and towers:

  • The Lenovo Legion 7i (16”, 9), Lenovo Legion 5i (16”, 9), and Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (16”, 9) are for gamers who need a laptop that can handle their favorite games as well as their STEM apps.
  • The Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 9) is for those who will settle for nothing less than the best in their gaming and content creation pursuits.
  • The Lenovo Legion Pro 7i (16”, 9) and Lenovo Legion Pro 5i (16”, 9) are for gamers who need the ultimate in FPS, style, and screen.
  • Legion Tower 7i and Legion Tower 5i are for those who need the extra horsepower of a top-tier gaming tower PC.

At the core of this new gaming lineup is the family of Lenovo’s proprietary hardware AI chips—called LA AI chips–and the advantages they bring to both Lenovo Legion and Lenovo LOQ gaming laptops. First introduced last CES, this year’s LA AI chips are mightier than ever, enabling Lenovo Legion and Lenovo LOQ laptops to achieve even higher FPS, increased power efficiency, and more. And with a selection of gaming laptops, towers, monitors, accessories and even the handheld Lenovo Legion Go announced last IFA, the new Lenovo gaming ecosystem lets gamers choose the exact setup they need to achieve gaming greatness and reach their ‘impossible’.

With this new lineup comes a new call-to-arms for all gamers: Reach Your Impossible. The new Lenovo Legion ecosystem gives gamers the solutions they need to achieve greatness. ‘Reach Your Impossible’ can mean something different to each gamer. Whether it’s topping the leaderboards in professional esports, successfully leading an endgame raid with teammates the world over, or anything in between, Lenovo Legion has the tools that give gamers the edge they need to succeed, both on the digital battlefield and in work or study.

“As the world enters the breach of AI-enabled technology, Lenovo is proud to be at the pinnacle of this charge. With Lenovo Legion’s newest lineup of hardware AI chip-powered laptops, gamers are empowered to reach impossible new heights thanks to fully user-customizable AI-assisted performance increases,” said Jun Ouyang, Lenovo’s Vice President and General Manager of the Consumer Business Segment, Intelligent Devices Group. “In addition to advances in gaming AI, Lenovo Legion’s new Coldfront: Hyperthermal technology—created in collaboration with our friends at Intel—is a disruptive breakthrough that redefines thermal design, increasing heat transfer efficiency while decreasing noise and skin temperatures, forging a path ahead in the future of portable PC gaming power.”

The Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 9)
The new Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 9) features the upgraded Lenovo LA3-P AI chip, which delivers Scenario Detection that dynamically adjusts power to the CPU and GPU to increase performance based on what the user is doing at any given moment. This is coupled with Smart FPS, which tracks power usage between hardware components and FPS output while gaming. It scans on-screen FPS data, then takes this data and runs it through an algorithm that optimizes CPU and GPU power that increases FPS in games.

The Lenovo LA3-P AI chip also enables Lighting Audio Sync. There is also Legion Aurora Sync, as well as Smart Control that allows gamers to quickly switch between preset power profiles including a user-settable Custom mode. Fan speed controls, thermal mode settings, and other AI capabilities are all controlled through Lenovo Vantage. With this granular level of control over AI-assisted settings, gamers can set up the Lenovo Legion 9i (16”, 9) exactly the way they want, no matter the use case.

The Lenovo Legion Series, Lenovo Legion Slim 5, and Lenovo Legion Tower 5i
Today’s gamers lead diverse, busy lives and need a device that can handle everything they throw at it, be it the processor-intensive apps prevalent in STEM studies or the hungriest of AAA games. The Lenovo Legion series made up of the Lenovo Legion 7i (16”, 9), Lenovo Legion 5i (16”, 9), and Lenovo Legion Slim 5 (16”, 9), offers gamers who need a powerful laptop in a portable package the ultimate do-it-all solution.

Lenovo’s LA AI chips are both present in Lenovo Legion series laptops. The Lenovo Legion 7i’s LA AI chip supports Scenario Detection, Smart FPS increases, and Smart Control, all accessible through Lenovo Vantage software so gamers can customize their laptop even further in the pursuit of optimum performance no matter the use case. The Lenovo Legion 5i supports Smart Control for on-the-fly power profile switching.

New for this year is the Lenovo Legion “Coldfront: Hyper” thermal solution, available on the Lenovo Legion 7i and Lenovo Legion 5i. This innovative thermal solution redirects hot air from laptop chips through a hyperbaric chamber in the laptop’s centre. The bottom D-cover prevents the mixing of hot exhaust air with cold incoming air, optimizing heat exchange. This design aims to keep laptop hardware cooler and maintain higher framerates.

Lenovo Legion series laptops also feature PureSight displays, which are per-unit colour-calibrated. The Lenovo Legion 7i (16”, 9) is available with either a 16-inch 3.2K 16:10 IPS display with 165Hz refresh, 100% DCI-P3 support, and 450 nits brightness for extra fidelity whether gaming, designing, or creating content; or a 16-inch WQXGA 16:10 display with 240Hz refresh and 100% sRGB for users who require faster display refresh rates. eSports Display software enhances gaming performance by enabling dynamic response time, reducing image blur, and offering features like a selectable-position FPS display and an aim assist reticle for improved precision in first-person shooter games.

When gaming at home or in the dorm, pair with a Lenovo Legion Y27h-30 Gaming Monitor and the brand new Legion M410 Wireless RGB Gaming Mouse and Lenovo Legion K510 Pro Mini Keyboard for extra control over one’s favourite games or least favourite homework. The Gaming Mouse features both a 2.4 GHz wireless connection and a wired connection with up to 16000 dpi, adjustable 2-zone RGB lighting effects, and a rechargeable battery. As a compact gaming keyboard, the Lenovo Legion K510 Mini Pro Keyboard packs a lot of sought-after gaming features including mechanical key switches, arrow and function keys, anti-ghosting, and 16.8 million color-per-key RGB support.

For gamers who are looking for a desktop solution to their gaming, educational, and professional pursuits, the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i can be configured with up to 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900F processors, up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 GPUs, up to 32GB of 5600MHz DDR5 RAM, up to an 850W 90% PSU, and up to 2TB PCIe NVMe SSD storage1. At 26L, the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i distils a lot of power into a chassis that dominates the game, not the desk.

The Lenovo Legion Pro Series and Lenovo Legion Tower 7i
For competitive gamers, the Lenovo Legion Pro series answers the call, delivering this gaming portfolio’s highest performance and cutting-edge thermals to help with the win. This year’s Lenovo Legion Pro series laptops feature up to all new Intel Core 14th Gen i9-14900HX processors, up to 32GB 5600MHz DDR5 memory, up to 16” PureSight WQXGA 16:10 IPS display panels supporting up to 240Hz refresh rates with 500 nits brightness, and up to 2TB PCIe SSD storage. The upgraded PureSight displays feature 100% DCI-P3 coverage.

All Lenovo Legion Pro 7i (16”, 9) laptops this year feature Coldfront: Vapor chamber thermals regardless of the configuration, allowing the up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU to max out at a total of 250W TDP in Extreme Mode. The Coldfront thermals in Lenovo Legion Pro 5i (16”, 9) laptops let the up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPUs breathe with a max output of 215W TDP in Extreme Mode. Performance is pushed even further thanks to the combination of Lenovo AI chips on Lenovo Legion Pro 7i laptops and the LA1 chip on Legion Pro 5i laptops. It powers Lenovo AI Engine+, which uses software machine learning, deployed through Lenovo Vantage, to help monitor in-game FPS and dynamically adjust power routing, fan curves, and many other settings to maintain the highest performance output no matter the scenario.

For gamers who need dedicated top-tier performance fully focused on the win, the Lenovo Legion Tower 7i is the monument to gaming greatness. With up to Intel Core i9 14900K processors, up to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX Desktop GPUs, up to 64GB 5600MHz DDR5 RAM, up to 6TB of PCIe NVMe SSD storage1, and up to a 1200W 90% PSU, this 34L behemoth—like its Pro series cousin—can push every pixel on a Lenovo Legion Y34wz-30 display to the max with lightning-fast refresh rates built for victory in high fidelity. Coupled with the Lenovo Legion K300 Mechanical Keyboard and Lenovo Legion M600e Wireless Gaming Mouse, the Lenovo Legion Pro series and Lenovo Legion Tower 7i deliver the arsenal of tools to clinch the win.

The AvatarMaster app
Taking the streaming and collaboration experience to a new level, select Lenovo Legion systems,3 including the Legion 7i (16”, 9) and Legion 5i (16”, 9) are now equipped with AvatarMaster. A new app powered by AI, AvatarMaster transforms users’ profiles into a 3D digital avatar, with complete customization capabilities from appearance and facial features to clothing and accessories. After creating and customizing their avatars, users can animate and stream a digital version of themselves during video conferences, gaming sessions, and across multiple platforms.

Harnessing the power of AI, AvatarMaster tracks both movements and audio, mimicking in real time a raised eyebrow, a nod, and even a blink so that the avatar is as expressive as the user. Even when the camera is off, users can take advantage of the AI-powered audio tracking mode to show facial expressions in the avatar only based on vocal and audio cues, allowing them to be present while remaining private.

Lenovo LOQ
The world’s best gamers all started their journey to the top by taking that first step into the gaming world – and with Lenovo LOQ gaming laptops and towers, that first step is made easy. This year’s Lenovo LOQ lineup includes a plethora of CPU and GPU options including Intel and AMD Ryzen CPUs as well as both NVIDIA 20, 30, and 40 Series Laptop GPUs, and even a fully Intel-based option with Intel Arc™ A530M graphics. The new hyperchamber thermal technology also found on Intel-based Lenovo LOQ laptops keeps processors cooler, drawing out up to an additional 15W of power in Extreme Mode while keeping skin temperatures up to 2°C cooler, and lowering fan noise by up to 2dB compared to its last generation.

Even more power is unlocked by the Lenovo LA1 AI chip present on all Lenovo LOQ laptops by powering Lenovo AI Engine+ through Lenovo Vantage to dynamically tune the laptop’s power, fan curves, and other settings on the fly to maximize performance according to the specific task at hand. All this technology allows the 15-inch Lenovo LOQ 15IRX9 to put out a total of 160W max TDP in Extreme Mode, more than enough power to play most games, whether AAA titles or indie releases.

All Lenovo LOQ laptops bring games to life on two display options—either a 165Hz WQHD (1440p) 5ms response time panel, or a 144Hz FHD panel, both of which support 100% sRGB colour coverage. Gamers can game in style with an optional 4-zone RGB keyboard with 1.5mm key travel on all Lenovo LOQ laptops as well.

Those looking for a tower to form the centrepiece of their first gaming setup need look no further than the Lenovo LOQ Tower 17IRR9. It features a redesigned 17L chassis, up to a 13th Gen Intel Core i7-14700 processor, up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 GPU, up to 32GB 4800MHz DDR5 RAM, and supports up to 1 SSD and 2 HDD hybrid storage options. All of this is powered by a 500W, 92% PSU.

Connect one’s Lenovo LOQ laptop or Lenovo LOQ Tower 17IRR9 to the Lenovo G27-30 monitor for an even bigger and better visual experience. All Lenovo gaming devices come with Windows 11 as well as 3 free months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. With Lenovo’s Legion Arena app, users can access all their favourite games across multiple gaming platforms in one central library. Lenovo Vantage is also included, offering customization and adjustments to maximize device performance through the all-in-one suite of tools, including overclocking controls, AI performance tuning, and a real-time performance dashboard.

Nahimic by SteelSeries’ 3D audio and simple mixing and audio streaming controls translate to crystal clear communication between teammates during gameplay. Every Lenovo Legion device is also eligible for Legion Ultimate Support, giving them access to a network of Lenovo Legion technicians eager to help solve any issues that may arise, and can even offer 24/7 support for specific games.

Reolink has unveiled a new dual-lens camera lineup at CES 2024. The company showed off a 16 million-pixel security camera, Duo 3 PoE, and more cutting-edge security products and technologies, redefining the future of home and business surveillance. “Devoted to creating the finest security products for consumers and business owners, Reolink is harnessing the latest technology to make homes and offices more secure and comfortable,” says Fabrice Klohoun, Marketing Manager at Reolink. “We invite conference attendees to join us at CES to witness the latest advances in security solutions, including the 16MP images captured by our devices and additional capabilities of Reolink’s product offerings.”

Reolink Duo 3 PoE 16MP Camera
Reolink’s newest addition to its flagship dual-lens lineup, the Duo 3 PoE, innovatively merges two high-resolution lenses into a real-life vision with an enormous 16 million pixels.

LG Launches the “World’s First” Wireless Transparent OLED TV at CES 2024

Published

on

LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling the world’s first wireless transparent OLED TV at CES 2024. The LG SIGNATURE OLED T is a true technological marvel, combining a transparent 4K OLED screen and LG’s wireless video and audio transmission technology to transform the screen experience in ways that have never been possible before. The OLED T unlocks a world of near-limitless potential, giving users the unprecedented freedom to meticulously curate their living spaces. This is complemented by the class-leading picture quality and performance of LG OLED, powered by the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor.

LG SIGNATURE OLED T liberates users from a dominant black screen that competes with the décor in their home. Maintaining its 77-inch screen size, OLED T and its innovative transparent display seamlessly harmonize with its environment. Practically invisible when turned off, it blends into the environment and frees users from the long-standing problem of what to do with the ‘big black screen.’ The TV’s beautiful see-through screen also helps to make one’s space feel larger, providing a sense of openness.

The unique LG OLED T brings with it many new possibilities, from where it can be placed in the room, to the kinds of user experiences that LG can now deliver. Its transparent OLED screen removes the usual constraints that come with conventional TVs. No longer does the TV have to be placed against the wall. Instead, place the OLED T in the middle of the room to become a divider or prop it against the window without blocking the view outside. The included Zero Connect Box, which leverages LG’s cutting-edge wireless transmission technology to send 4K images and sound to the OLED T, also enables users to place their TV anywhere, regardless of where the electrical outlets are located in the room. With no cables between the Zero Connect Box and the OLED T, users can enjoy a clean, cable-free viewing environment.

What’s more, the modular design of the LG OLED T facilitates diverse installation methods. The OLED T comes in stand-alone, against-the-wall, or wall-mount options. Customers can further customize by adding standing or floating shelves on either or both sides of the screen to best suit their unique tastes and preferences. LG’s transparent OLED lets owners discover new forms of entertainment and use via its dual viewing experiences: transparent and opaque. The OLED T becomes a transparent digital canvas for showcasing artwork, videos or photos with the Always-On-Display (AOD) feature.

The content displayed on the transparent screen appears to float in air, yet simultaneously fuses with the surrounding space to create a compelling and atmospheric visual effect. Another option is the T-Bar feature that offers a helpful info-ticker running along the lower part of the screen. The T-Bar displays news alerts, weather updates, or the title of songs being played while the rest of the screen presents a clear, unobstructed view of the space behind it.

For viewing in picture-perfect OLED, simply click a button to raise the contrast screen. In this way, users can instantly switch to take full advantage of LG OLED’s enhanced picture quality through the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor with 4 times greater AI performance. This provides a 70 per cent improvement in graphic performance and a 30 per cent faster processing speed compared to its predecessor. OLED T offers the best of both transparent and vibrant-color screen experiences with just a click of a button.

“An incredible feat of consumer-driven innovation, LG SIGNATURE OLED T offers brand-new screen experiences plus the picture quality and performance of our award-winning OLED technology,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “LG’s transparent OLED gives customers greater freedom to curate their living spaces, completely redefining what’s possible and pointing the way to an exciting future for the television industry.”
