In its efforts to bring game-changing devices closer to Filipino gamers, Lenovo, the world’s number one PC developer recently inaugurated its first Legion Concept Store located at the 4th floor of the Annex Building of SM City North EDSA featuring a wide range of products from Lenovo’s Legion gaming lineup.
“As the gaming market grows exponentially every year, we at Lenovo would like to maintain our commitment in providing best performing and top of the line devices to the Philippines, which includes the Legion line of gaming notebooks. The exclusive Legion store was conceptualized to support the local gaming culture and provide virtually everything that a gamer needs,” said Lenovo Philippines Country General Manager Michael Ngan.
In addition to showcasing Legion products, the store will occasionally hold mini gaming tournaments to further engage the local gaming community. The Legion store at SM City North EDSA is just the first of many planned Legion Concept Stores set to open all over the country.
Unleashing a gaming beast
At the inauguration of the first Legion Concept Store, Lenovo also showcased the Legion Y740 gaming laptop, Lenovo’s first device to have NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ graphics card.
Geared towards eSports professionals and mainstream gamers who mostly play the latest AAA games, the Philippine release of the Legion Y740 boasts of having the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060. Powered by NVIDIA’s Turing architecture and its new RTX platform, the GeForce RTX™ 2060 has up to 6X faster performance than the previous generation of graphics cards.
Combined with the Intel® Core™ i7-8750H processor, the Legion Y740 easily handles graphics-intensive games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield V, and Anthem at either 1080p or 1440p resolution.
The Legion Y740 prides itself as the thinnest and lightest among similarly specced and priced NVIDIA RTX-powered devices, being only 19.95 mm thin and 2.2 kg (4.9 lbs.) light. Other unique features are its RGB Keyboard powered by Corsair iCue and USB-C Thunderbolt 3 support.
