    With some tuning on that 13900HX in the Legion Pro 7i (4090), You can increase the R23 scores significantly. My highest single run score is 36,089.

    Any chance to review the pro 7 with 4090 and the AMD chip? I’m curious how it would do in terms of gaming given potentially a lighter CPU thermal output! Would love to see it for a 3-way comparison!

    Also – just fantastic review, hitting everything, including noise and thermals and different modes – this is rare these days in review world; excellent work!!! This is super helpful!

    I was able to pick up the 4090 version from a local Microcenter for about $2300. After several months of use I am rather impressed. I've owned Razer products in the past which were much more toasty, had atrocious keyboards, and were overall less reliable in hardware and software with constant blue screening, issues with hardware breaking, razer synapse being a buggy mess, etc. I decided to give the Legion a try after having a good experience with a Lenovo Yoga model which handled college life rather well. I have been immensely impressed. I find the keyboard to be really good despite being a little low on travel it certainly has a bit of the Thinkpad pedigree to it. The RGB is also bug free as it is controlled via firmware which means that it will still work if you decide to add a partition or have an additional drive to run Linux. On the topic of Linux, the bios will allow you to keep secure boot enabled for windows even if you have another drive in the system with Linux installed which is a rarity in the market. As far as gaming performance and thermals are concerned I am also rather impressed. You can see in your testing that the hot spots are not located at the wasd keys unlike other laptops. As a result I have found the keyboard to be more than comfortable for prolonged gaming sessions At no point have I experienced thermal throttling in normal use and fan noise is completely drowned out when wearing headphones even on the boost setting. However, If you are using the laptop for heavy loads that are more work related I could see how this may become an issue if you are coding or doing some other task while something is running. I really enjoy the Lenovo vantage suite of apps. I find them to be useful, stable, and not overly intrusive as far as the experience goes. It saves from the headaches many experience with other brands of having to troubleshoot, uninstall, and tweak settings on a new device to make the experience less annoying. Lenovo vantage is fully featured with even links to buy critical components of your device should they ever need to be replaced along with technical documentation on how to fix various issues. This laptop provides the owner with a subdued looks, and overall good performance. I would call it a jack of all trades and a master of none with some extra niceties sprinkled in. For what I paid, I'd say this laptop was an excellent buy and would recommend it to anyone who was inquiring about this class of laptop.
