Lenovo recently refreshed its popular Legion Pro series of gaming laptops with 2024 variants of the Legion Pro 5i and Pro 7i. In this article, we’ll take a look at the latter which will ship with a refreshed Intel Raptor Lake chip and not a Meteor Lake Core Ultra processor. With that being said, let’s get into the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i (2024), its design, specs, expected price in Nepal, and availability. 

Lenovo Legion Pro 7i (2024) Overview: 


Since the Legion Pro 7i is a gaming laptop, let’s start things off with performance. Under the hood, the 2024 iteration of the Pro 7i features the newly announced Intel Core i9-14900HX processor. This is the highest-end Raptor Lake (refresh) chip and features a surprising 24 cores (8P + 16E) and 32 threads with a maximum turbo frequency of 5.8 GHz. Intel says you can expect better single-core performance as well as under mixed load.

Looking at benchmarking results from Notebookcheck, the i9-14900HX scores a whopping 2232 points in the Cinebench R23 single-core test. That’s a 61-point lead over the Core i9-13980HX and an 8.6% lead over the Core i9-13900HX (2055 points).

Shipping a laptop with a Raptor Lake CPU over the newer Meteor Lake does sacrifice in the efficiency and iGPU department, but since the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i (2024) is a gaming machine, going with the higher-performing Raptor Lake Refresh options was probably the right move here.

Configurations of the laptop can ship with up to an NVIDIA RTX 4090 (at 175W). Although the new chips bring support for up to 192GB of RAM, memory will be limited to 32GB (RAM) and 2TB of Gen 4 SSD.

Design and Display

On the design front, there aren’t a lot of new talking points in the Lenovo Legion Pro 7i (2024). There’s the “LEGION” branding on the left edge and a “Lenovo tag” on the lower right edge of the aluminum lid.

As for the display, you are getting a WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) res IPS screen with a 16:10 aspect ratio. There will be configurations with up to 240Hz refresh rate and 3ms response times (with OverDrive). Moreover, the screen can hit up to 500 nits of peak brightness, and carry X-Rite Pantone and TUV Rheinland certification for proper color coverage (100% sRGB) and low-blue light emission. It also supports NVIDIA G-Sync and comes with VESA DisplayHDR 400 certification. Lenovo also mentions that higher-end PureSight displays will have a wider 100% DCI-P3 color coverage.
