With more powerful RTX graphics processors from NVIDIA and Intel’s latest CPUs, the Legion Y740 could be an affordable powerhouse for gaming.

Lenovo is giving substantial revisions to its Legion line of gaming laptops including its more premium Y740 series for 15-inch and 17-inch gaming rigs.

Perhaps the most significant improvement comes with the bump to NVIDIA RTX gaming GPUs for laptops, which were just announced here at CES.

Another common theme with these laptops will be the doubling down on display technology to include such features like 500-nits for brightness, HDR, and Dolby Vision.
