Lenovo Teases Legion 7000K Desktop PC With Mobile Intel Gen Core HX Series CPU

Lenovo teases a full-fledged desktop gaming PC built on the Mobile platform. Mobile-on-desktop (MoDT) motherboards provide comparable, if not identical, performance while maintaining robust platform feature support. This is especially true for models that use the AMD and Intel HX mobile series, primarily desktop CPUs packaged in BGA formats.

Some Chinese companies have managed to integrate these chips into motherboards designed for desktop use, even adapting them to support standard desktop CPU coolers. Due to the absence of integrated heat spreaders (IHS) in mobile CPUs, these MoDT platforms usually include special heatsinks compatible with such coolers.

A major contender poised to join the fray is Lenovo, a global leader in the PC industry. Recently, the company introduced its Legion 7000K PC, which features a MoDT platform powered by Intel Core HX-series processors (13th and 14th Gen).

The 7000K represents the first offering in its category available in a traditional desktop casing. Notably, the limitations associated with mobile power seem to have been overcome as well, with Lenovo speculating to maintain PL1 (Power Limit 1) of up to 190W and PL2 of up to 253W.

While the teaser image omits details regarding launch date or pricing, the system is shown with a bespoke CPU cooler and a full-sized graphics card.

Finally, gamers get a chance to get a high-end gaming PC at a lower price, although there are fewer options for upgrades (because the CPUs are soldered and non-replaceable). However, other components such as memory, storage, and GPUs are usually interchangeable.
