Lenovo Legion Go Gaming Test – COD: Modern Warfare III, Forza Horizon 5, Armored Core VI & Cyberpunk 2077

It’s great being able to play games on the move, especially when the immersion factor gets an upgrade. With an 8.8-inch QHD+ IPS touchscreen display (2,560 x 1,600), the Lenovo Legion Go is more than well-equipped to deliver on that front, serving as a hybrid between the Nintendo Switch and handheld gaming PCs.

It features a D-pad, a mouse wheel, ten programmable shoulder buttons, triggers, and grip buttons, but its detachable gamepad allows for added versatility. The Hall Effect joysticks have been designed to prevent drifting issues, while the controllers can be used in FPS mode, acting as a mouse substitution for navigating the user interface, or firing at the enemy in shooter games.

More importantly, the Legion Go has the horsepower to impress. Decked out in an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme CPU, an RDNA graphics card, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage, it certainly packs a powerful punch. But nothing beats real-world performance, so we’ve put it through the gaming gauntlet for a more accurate showing.

Check out the device in action above, where its mettle is put to the test in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, Forza Horizon 5, Armored Core VI, and Cyberpunk 2077. The Lenovo Legion Go starts at S$1,149 and is currently available for purchase on the official website.
