With the intelligent thermal design which has four exhaust systems with dual fans makes the airflow easier. Fan speed and voltage can be controlled by Lenovo Q Control app to make customizable environment to get the best performance and battery life. Liquid metal cooling in both CPU and GPU helps to reduce the heat even faster.

Does 2022 Model Legion Have MUX Switch?

Current gaming laptops transmit frames from the GPU through the CPU’s integrated graphics before reaching the display. This method offers better battery life as it doesn’t use dedicated GPU all time. But it prevents the dedicated GPU from producing its full capable performance. Lenovo brings MUX switch to all of its Legion series laptops released in 2022. This is great for competitive games who can switch to a direct GPU mode using MUX switch which reduces latency and boosts performance significantly.
