Lenovo introduces new pre-built PCs with Intel B460 chipset and RTX GPUs


Two new gaming devices are joining Lenovo’s roster of pre-built PC. Both the Lenovo Legion Tower 5i and the IdeaCentre Gaming 5i will come with the latest RTX GPUs from NVIDIA, B460 motherboards, and presumably, Comet-lake based desktop processors.

Aimed to those who like SFX builds, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Gaming 5i is encased in a rather tiny 14L chassis. Despite its size, it still packs a punch with its NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060. Materials sent by Lenovo confirms that the pre-built will come with a B460 motherboard, which presumably houses an incoming Intel Comet Lake processor.

Its chassis is clad in a Chameleon Blue hue. Lenovo promises that the PC will come with better thermals that allows it to be cool while delivering constant framerates in the heat of a gaming session.

Lenovo will be announcing the official price of the Lenovo IdeaCentre Gaming 5i soon. They will also be adding Ryzen options soon to those who like the current offerings of AMD.

Lenovo Legion Tower 5i

The Lenovo Legion Tower 5i is built for those who prefer performance over anything else. The device can be armed up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super, up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 2933MHz, and up to 2TB of PCIe NVMe SSD. Like the IdeaCentre Gaming 5i, it will ship out with a B460 motherboard. Thus, we can expect the Legion Tower 5 to have an Intel Comet Lake-based processor.

Though its 28L chassis may seem little for that amount of horsepower, Lenovo is still able to squeeze in more cooling performance thanks to its Coldfront 2.0 system. A 150-watt cooler brings the CPUs temperature down while larger intake fans allow for more fresh air to circulate around the case.
