Lenovo Legion 5 AMD Unboxing & First Impressions⚡Best Gaming Laptop Under 1 Lac?

Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 6 15 (2021) is a lower mid-range gaming laptop.  It’s a step up from the budget-oriented Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 (2021), but sits below the Legion 5 Pro and Legion 7 in Lenovo’s lineup.  It is similar to the IdeaPad Gaming 3 in design, user experience and configuration options;  However, there is an additional QHD display option and GPUs such as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 and AMD Radeon RX 6600M GPUs.  Unlike the IdeaPad Gaming 3, the Legion 5 sports a MUX switch, and its GPU runs at a higher wattage, allowing for better performance.

  Our Lenovo Legion 5 has an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 (95W) dedicated GPU, 8GB of memory, and 256GB of storage.  If you need better multi-thread performance, you can upgrade the CPU to the AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, which has more cores and threads.  The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 is the lowest-end GPU option and can deliver a 60 fps gaming experience at 1080p, although you’ll need to play most games at lower settings.  The RTX 3050 and 3050Ti are very similar and will get you around or slightly above 60 fps with medium or high settings, with the 3050 Ti only marginally better.  The RTX 3060 is faster than the RTX 3050, providing a 35 to 40% performance boost compared to the RTX 3050.  The AMD Radeon RX 6600M is roughly on par with the RTX 3060;  Performance will vary depending on the adaptation of each game.  The RTX 3070 is the highest-end GPU available and the best option to pair with a QHD 165Hz display.
