Until recently, when we heard the term “gaming console,” most of us thought of products like PlayStation and Xbox that needed to be connected to a TV or monitor. Handheld devices were seen by many people as a kind of side option, mainly because of their technical limits. However, everything changed in 2017 when Nintendo introduced the Switch. It showed the world that handheld consoles could be mainstream too.
Seeing Nintendo's financial success, many companies decided to make their own handheld consoles. One of those companies is Lenovo. It was known for a while that the company is working on a console that will run Windows 11. Now, the specs for this device, called the Lenovo Legion Go, have been confirmed in leaked tests results. Here are the details….
Lenovo Legion Go Specs Confirmed: AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD and More
Lenovo has been working on a handheld game console called Legion Go for a while now. Even though there hasn't been an official announcement from the company, leaks have given us some information about the handhelds design and some specs. Now, new test results confirmed and reveal more details about the upcoming console. These tests show that the Legion Go will have an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB samsung storage drive. It will also have an 8-inch screen with a high resolution.
The Ryzen Z1 Extreme is a new processor from AMD that is designed for high-performance gaming and creative work. It is based on the Zen 3+ architecture and has eight cores and 16 threads. This should make the Lenovo Legion Go a very capable gaming device, even when compared to the Steam Deck, which is powered by a custom AMD APU.
The 16GB of RAM should also be sufficient for demanding games and applications. And the 512GB SSD will provide plenty of storage space for games, movies, and other files. The Legion Go's 8-inch display is slightly larger than the Steam Deck's 7-inch display. This should make it a bit more comfortable to use for gaming and other tasks. The benchmarks also show that the Legion Go is running Windows 11 Home 23H2. This is the latest version of Windows 11, and it includes a number of improvements for gaming devices.
