Lenovo is definitely a huge brand with its Fortune 500 label. The tech giant is the number one PC brand for quite a while. Ironically, Lenovo doesn’t sell any PC component, unlike ASUS, MSI, and Gigabyte who has a presence in DIY PCs, Prebuilt PCs, and laptops. Since 2018, Lenovo has been aggressive in pushing its gaming line with the launch of revamped laptops, peripherals, and even an upcoming Legion Gaming phone. The Legion Gaming phone is constantly being leaked on Weibo, but recent image leaks show a different product that Lenovo Legion is working on – a motherboard. The gaming motherboard under the Legion brand seems to sport Intel’s 300 and 400 series chipsets, supporting the current generation Coffee Lake and next-gen Comet Lake-S processors respectively.
The Legion gaming motherboards leaked appears to be in a non-standard form factor but is relatively close to a standard ITX motherboard. The non-gamery design except for the Legion logo likely means that these motherboards are for OEMs or for Lenovo’s pre-built gaming PCs under the Legion brand. The motherboards show an 8+2 power phase, VRM heatsinks, dual M.2 slots, four DIMM slots, and only one 16x PCI-e slot. While the design looks unappealing compared to the gaming motherboards present today, it’s always exciting to see a new player in the scene. A new competitor in the market is always good for consumers.
