Lenovo Legion 7i Gaming Laptop with 10th Generation Intel Core i7-10875H Processor Overview

by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

Hi guys this is ranjeet and in this video let's have a closer look at this lenovo legion 7i laptop and quite a few of you have been asking me to actually uh give an overview about some gaming laptops so i knew someone in leno and i asked them to send a gaming laptop so they actually sent me this legion 7i which is their highest end gaming laptop actually this one is slightly different uh this has the intel core i7 what do you say processor but this is the hit series processor and this specific variant actually has

Eight core generally the normal intel head series processors are actually six cores what is this this one specific model has eight cores and 16 threads and even when we talk about the gpu which is also very important on gaming laptops this one has the nvidia rtx 2080 max q graphic card so top of the line specs i would say and i have been playing around with this one for over a week or so so let's have a closer look at the same

So guys here is the laptop and this one has actually a 15.6 inch ips lcd screen and it's 144 hertz and it can go actually pretty bright 500 nits but the good thing is that this is actually 100 adobe srg so the colors and everything is very very accurate on this one that's what i liked and uh specifically this model comes with 16 gigabytes of ram and as you can see rgb lighting almost everywhere on this laptop even this legion logo actually glows and if i open

It from the back also as you can see rgb lighting almost everywhere it's sort of overkill uh even the ports over here when you plug them actually they glow this is the hdmi port this is your usb port uh you have a ethernet jack over here and again one more uh usb port and this is your power plug that goes it actually has a massive power brick it's a 230 watt brick

And the battery is 80 watt r battery on this one and with the supply 230 watt charger you can charge up to 50 in about 30 minutes uh the build quality is good it's anodized aluminum on the top uh back again plastic and a lot of opening of the vents i would say to dissipate the head as you can see you can even see the fans there are two fans over here and you can open this up and actually add the ram if you want uh we have two speakers over here uh

It's actually down firing but surprisingly they are actually louder and guys first let's have a look at the computer if you go to this pc uh this comes with windows 10 home edition pre-installed and as i've told you if we get 16 gigabytes of ram you can upgrade it easily and while ordering also you can actually customize it but you can upgrade the ram on this model and the processor is the new intel core i7

108 75 h which is actually a 8 core processor base frequency is 2.3 gigahertz but this processor can ramp up up to 5 gigahertz that's the specialty and i've seen it mostly moving around 4.5 4.6 gigahertz when i was stressing it another thing about this laptop is this rgb lighting as i've told you can customize it as you can see you have various modes to customize it there's an app i won't go into that but again you can customize every aspect

Of the keyboard uh but to show you a little bit more about the processor let's just run the cpu z app and as you can see this is the cpu uh this is the intel core i7 as of now i would say this is the most powerful core i7 based chip that you can get from until most of the head series chip generally are six cores but this specific variant is actually a proper eight core and it also has hyper threading that means windows actually sees it as 16 threads so

This is what we have and again it can ramp up up to five gigahertz and if you go to even the cases uh notice the l3 case it's a healthy 16 megabyte case that we are having and if you go to the memory this is the 16 gigabyte ddr4 it's a dual channel but you can upgrade and if we can go to the frequency uh it's ddr4 3200 megahertz uh memory that we are having on this one and graphic card uh the it has the nvidia gtx 2080s uh super max q this is the

Best graphic card that you can get as of now for laptop so we have that and obviously you also have the inter usb graphics also uh is there so that's what it is and i also ran a 3d mark so let's have a look at that guys running the 3d mark test for checking the gpu and it's been running for about 10-12 minutes now and i'm in the turbo mode and as you can see it's running multiple tests but the thing is that the machine is being stressed what i noticed around the keyboard we

Got the score it's 8623 and this 3d mark so that gives you an idea about it but to give you an idea the keyboard as you can see is around 35 degrees so not very hot 36 but around this k key this k and l key it is going about 41 so this is slightly warm uh but again the rest of the keyboard is around 36 degrees celsius so again you don't have to worry but this is the score that we are getting in 3d mark and i also run some other

Benchmark scores guys i'll also show you some gaming that i did with this i enjoyed it actually and as you can see this is a silly bench r20 and this is for the cpu score we got a very healthy score of 3748 and this is the crystal disk mark this is for testing the ssd uh we have a one terabyte ssd on this one and just notice the score the read scores that we are getting 3146 and even right that's crossing 3000 so very very healthy scores uh one of the fastest ssds that you can

Get so again uh brilliant performance i also ran the final fantasy benchmark test you can also download it and run it on your computer to get an idea first i ran it in the high quality mode and that's in full hd and here we got a score of 8600 but i also ran it in the standard quality uh again here as you can see he got a very high score of 10 533 so again very good benchmark scores that we are getting

I also ran geekbench five and here as you can see these are the scores that we got for single core and here for the multi-core uh again i run even the opencl with geekbench five and this is what we got uh i also ran pc mark 10 this is the office application benchmark test and for office microsoft office test we got a very high score of 1088 as you can see uh but again i also ran the full pc mark 10 benchmark this is what generally is used and this is the professional edition guy

And we got a again a very healthy score of overall score of 5279 um so these are the scores and again i have already shown you the 3d mark score also uh this is overwatch and notice that we are touching almost about 126 fps here and i'm just using the controller because i'm used to that one but you can use the keyboard obviously and notice the frame rate again the frame rate uh is uh touching about 144 also that's the maximum of uh this what do you say uh

Computer because of the refresh rate let me actually show you if i go to options and i'm keeping graphics and everything let's go to the video at high 144 hertz and graphic card quality is ultra that's the best that we can do and handling everything as you can see this so again you'll have a great experience playing this game i'm just playing it with the controller because i'm i used to play a lot of

Games with uh what do you say on xbox i'm used to this controller so very good experience on overwatch as you can see i had a blast playing this game on this one uh so let's just get out of this one very good experience and guys for forza i also ran the benchmark on it uh and i've saved it here as you can see again we got excellent excellent scores in terms of benchmark as you can see the fps it said about 172 it can go

Up and again all settings at the highest graphics settings and then also we had some good experience so this is fonza i played it quite a bit on the xbox but on this one i'm keeping the settings at max so guys this is forza and again let me actually show you the graphics first again see how well this car is rendered i'm trying to do the drift the shadows reflections and everything and

I have played this game quite a bit on the xbox one x in 4k but i have to say your the graphics look way more crisper as it's running on ultra again notice the uh what do you say shadows and everything looks really cool let me just through the drift as you can see so really actually i'm liking how detailed the model looks definitely on this ultra

Graphic settings the car looks very crisp let me actually uh give you an idea and notice the sky and everything let me change the angle very immersive this is another view oh my gosh so as you can see even this uh forza at that ultimate uh what do you say ultra graphics settings it's handling everything and i'm not noticing any what do you say stutter or anything as you can see if we go here also

As you can see ultra smooth that we are getting so definitely it's able to handle it even in this ultra graphic uh settings and guys playing this overwatch and as you can see i've connected to this big uh television uh this is actually i've set the resolution to 4k and as you can see it's playing very well i actually i'm really enjoying it because i've got using the controller but it's connected

To this legion laptop and i'm having a blast it's on ultra graphic settings set to 4k 60 fps though this tv is 8k and the rtx 2080 won't support 8k but again even in 4k as you can see having having a great experience in terms of frame rates uh it is hovering between 45 to 35 when a lot of action is happening like this it's but really enjoying it and it's a blast to actually put it in 4k connect to a big television uh i'm really enjoying playing this game

And i'm happy that this laptop is able to handle it so guys this is apex legend again uh playing on this one so again a pretty interesting laptop and i would say uh i like the processor that is used on this one this is the intel head series processor and i would say it's not only great for gaming but i did also test it at video editing particularly uh what you see adobe

Premiere and even the editing experience was very good and even when you export the videos it was exporting really fast thanks to inter quick sync technology so again these intel head series processors are not only great for gaming but even for i would say productivity task if you have some very heavy applications then you can have a look at a computer that has the intel head series processor uh this one actually has the eight core but most of them generally

Are hovering around the six core but the core i9 variants yes those are again eight core processors uh so again a pretty interesting laptop but this lenovo 7i i would say it's pretty pricey so if you're looking for a gaming laptop you can also look at the lenovo 5i variant of this laptop yes it doesn't have the cutting edge specs like this one but again if you're sort of a medium or casual gamer and want a productivity laptop you can also have a

Look at that one because that one also comes with the intel core head series processor i believe you can get the six core and even eight core variant even with the lenovo uh what do you say 5i legion based laptops overall i like the laptop i would say the performance is good uh the only two nitpickings that i have with this specific model was that no windows hello authentication and not even a fingerprint scanner for such an expensive laptop another thing that i did not like is

That around the trackpad if you notice if i press the trackpad there is that slight flex that i am noticing that is the thing that i did not like but apart from that overall i would say it's a good gaming laptop so again guys in general if you're looking for a gaming centric laptop i would say look at the gpu that it has it has to be a powerful gpu for gaming but that's very important and also the processor is also very important if you're going with intel

Based processors uh i would suggest if you're going for a gaming laptop go with the head series processors they're actually pretty powerful and optimized for a lot of games and in fact also for heavy tasks like video editing etc i felt the performance was also very good anyways guys that's it for now thanks for watching this is ranjeet and i hope to see you in my next video take care guys
