BYO graphics card: The Legion Y740S gaming laptop is made to marry Lenovo’s first eGPU
Lenovo’s recent revamp of its Legion laptop aesthetic could make it ideal for people who need a single laptop for work and gaming. The sleek, grey look would blend into a boardroom setting, aside from the “Legion” logotype on the lid. One problem? The heavy firepower in the Legion Y740 sent its battery life plummeting. The notebook lasted an abysmal two hours in our testing.
Lenovo’s adopting the Razer Blade Stealth approach to fix the issue. The Legion Y740S, announced Sunday at CES in Las Vegas, sticks to the integrated graphics inside Intel’s 10th-gen Core processors, which should greatly improve battery life. At the same time, gamers can tap into the firepower they need at home via the companion Legion BoostStation external GPU also announced Sunday, which lets you connect powerful desktop graphics cards to the laptop via USB-C.
