Lenovo just launched three new VR-ready gaming towers

New, 2 comments

Lenovo unveiled three gaming towers today that it says span the full gamut of gamer needs, all of which are VR-ready. The top-of-the-line model is the Legion Y920, which runs Window 10, can feature up to a seventh-generation Intel Core i7-7700K quad-core processor, and is powered by an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card.

The selling point of the tower, though, is that it includes the option for 32GB 2800Mhz Corsair Vengence LPS overclockable DDR4 memory and integrated Asetek liquid cooling. It's available with either two 512GB PCIe SSDs in RAID 0, or a 512GB SSD paired with a 4TB HDD. It starts at €2,299, or $2,715 USD, when it's released in September. You'll have to wait until October to include the liquid cooling.

The other two gaming towers also run Windows 10. Here are the specs for both of those:

The Legion Y720 Tower:

  • Up to a seventh-gen Intel Core i7-7700 processor
  • Option for 16GB Intel Optane memory
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics
  • 256GB PCIe SSD and 2TB SATA HDD
  • Six USB 3.0 ports; four USB 2.0 ports; one USB 3.1 Type-A port; one USB 3.1 Type-C port; one microphone jack; one headphone jack; six audio ports; and a 7-in-1 card reader
  • Starts at €1,299, or $1,534 USD

The Legion Y520 Tower:

  • Up to a seventh-gen Intel Core i7-7700 processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU
  • Up to 16GB DDR4
  • Up to 256GB PCIe SSD and 2TB HDD
  • Four USB 3.0 ports; two USB 2.0 ports; one microphone jack; one headphone jack; one HDMI port; and one RJ45 Gigabit LAN
  • Starts at €749, or $884 USD

Alongside these towers, Lenovo is also launching a 24.5-inch gaming monitor called the Y25f. The Full HD display has a 144Hz refresh rate and 400 nits of brightness. Too bad it isn't curved.
