Lenovo Legion Laptop w/ 8-Core Tiger Lake-H CPU and RTX 3080 GPU Spotted

Lenovo’s next-gen Legion gaming lineup has been spotted featuring the much-awaited 10nm Intel Tiger Lake-H CPUs paired with NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series GPUs. Three SKUs have surfaced, namely, the budget-grade Core i5-11400H which is likely going to be a hex-core part, the Core i7-11800H, and the top-end Core i9-11980HK which can only be an octa-core chip. The 11400H features integrated Gen12 Xe graphics, the 11800H is paired with the GeForce RTX 3060, and the 11980HK with the RTX 3080 mobile.

It’d be fair to say that the pricing is vastly off the mark with the Core i9/RTX 3080 combo listed at a lower price than the Core i5 variant without discrete graphics. The former is going to be priced over $2,000, in line with all the other RTX 3080 mobile laptops while the former should start at around $700-800. The Core i7-RTX 3060 variant is likely going to cost over $1,000, likely below the $1,500 mark.

There are also a couple of Cezanne models, both featuring the octa-core Ryzen 7 5800H. One is coupled with the paltry GeForce GTX 1650 while the other with the RTX 3070 mobile. Once again, the prices are misleading and the latter should be priced just over the Core i7-RTX 3060 combo, somewhere in the $1,400-1,800 range.
