This year’s Legion 5i’s winning formula combines the latest and performance-centric hardware by Intel® and NVIDIA® and innovative Legion features and technology, ensuring that you will effortlessly achieve victory after victory in the classroom, boardroom and game room.

Built to win

Victory never comes easy but it gets easier when you have the skills and tools at the ready. One of the tools you will always be able to rely on is the Legion 5i as it is built and calibrated with the latest and most innovative hardware combined with Legion’s smart software suite. This winning formula ensures that you get the best performance and experience when you are producing impressive business pitches or killstreaks.

With up to the latest 12th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-12700H processor the Legion 5i promises responsiveness, efficiency and performance due to the processor’s innovative hybrid architecture. Furthermore, with the 12th Generation Intel® Core™ chip, the Legion 5i supports Thunderbolt™ 4 connectivity, Intel® Wi-Fi 6E (Gig+) and PCIe 4.0.

If graphics performance is an important factor to you, you won’t have to worry as the Legion 5i features up to the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3070 Ti graphics that has up to 8GB of GDDR6 memory and a boost clock that reaches up to 1485MHz. With its AI-specialised Tensor Cores, you will be able to render complex 3D images, edit high-resolution videos and enjoy the latest games at the highest graphical settings.

Winners always stay cool

Similar to the other 2022 Legion laptops, the Legion 5i is built with the innovative Legion Coldfront 4.0 thermal system. This new and improved thermal system helps the Legion 5i defeat the heat with its expansive five heat pipe layout, dual 12V fans with 67 0.5mm liquid crystal polymer blades that are 140% more powerful and up to 170W of total system TDP. 

The Legion Coldfront 4.0 also utilises a dedicated copper thermal system and four copper heat sinks that let the Legion 5i stay cool and quiet even when under heavy loads or after long hours of usage.

Million-dollar looks

The design of the Legion 5i is reminiscent of its predecessors as it still retains a very clean-cut and minimalist design. However, we have given refinements that make it look even sleeker than before. The Storm Grey and Cloud Grey aluminium and magnesium covers make the Legion 5i look extremely sophisticated and also add to the overall durability of the laptop. 

While the Legion 5i is 15% thinner than the previous generation coming in at only 19.9mm thin, we have added in thoughtful features such as a Zero-Bump Hinge and I/O notch that helps to prevent snags or lost USB dongles. For added security and privacy, a webcam E-Shutter privacy switch also ensures your webcam is turned off when you want it off.

When it comes to I/O ports, the Legion 5i comes with all the ones that you need such as a Thunderbolt™ 4 and USB Type-C port on the left and a USB Type-A, audio combo jack and the aforementioned E-Shutter switch located on the right. On the rear device, you will find a USB Type C port that supports up to 135W power delivery, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI 2.1, an RJ-45 Ethernet port and finally the DC-in port.

The keys to success

Success comes when you stay in control of your own actions, emotions and situations. With the Legion TrueStrike keyboard, you will always have perfect control as it features innovative soft-landing switches that deliver deep 1.5mm strokes and 100% anti-ghosting that makes typing and gaming on the Legion 5i a more satisfying experience. This new keyboard also produces 33% less percussion noise, so you can enjoy your favourite games or music while working without disruptions.

Other notable improvements and features of the Legion 5i’s TrueStrike keyboard are the swappable keycaps, full-sized number pads, larger arrow keys and Fn combinations that provide easy access to all your favourite shortcuts and controls.

Sweet sounds of victory

For all-around immersion, the Legion 5i features Nahimic Audio that drastically improves your gaming experience thanks to immersive 3D audio and incredible Surround Sound when paired with headphones capable of reproducing 5.1 and 7.1 audio formats. 

If you are a gamer who loves playing multiplayer games, Nahimic Audio also features a Voice Stabiliser and Noise Suppression to help you maintain clear, constant and comfortable communication during even the most hectic of battles. Additionally, you can also share audio over two headphones, which is especially handy when you are watching a movie or gaming with a partner using the same laptop. 

For the times when you don’t feel like using headphones, the Legion 5i comes with two 2W speakers that are tuned by SteelSeries™ that provide deep bass and great clarity.
