When considering buying a laptop, we usually have to decide whether to opt for power or portability. If one wants a computer capable of running the latest games with ease, one will have to opt for a fairly heavy computer. And if you want a computer that you can carry around, it probably won’t come equipped with graphics that are powerful enough to play games. However, today’s technology offers us a multitude of options that allow us not to have to give up anything. For example, the new Lenovo Legion BoostStation, a small tower that can be adapted to any current graphic.
The Legion BoostStation connects to the laptop via Thunderbolt 3 for maximum speed. In addition, the box has a storage bay. It is also equipped with a good connectivity section to support all the necessary accessories and screens. Let’s see what it has to offer.
Graphic Power Integrated into Any Computer
A device like the new Lenovo Legion BoostStation allows gamers to play at the highest level with any computer. So you can choose a lightweight, compact computer like the Lenovo Yoga C940 for everyday use, and you can play games for a while when you get home by connecting it to the BoostStation.
The Lenovo Legion BoostStation measures 172 x 365 x 212 millimetres, with a weight of 8.5 kg. You can place a graphic card up to 32 centimeters long inside it, which means that virtually any graphic card will be compatible.
The device is sold in a pack with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics with 6 GB of memory, or with an AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT. However, the Legion BoostStation is compatible with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8 GB and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8 GB graphics.
In the Lenovo Legion BoostStation there is an ATX power supply of up to 500W, which gives us plenty of power to move any graphic. It also has a SATA port that supports 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch HDDs or SSDs.
The Thunderbolt 3 USB Type C port allows you to connect multiple screens or devices through a single cable. It even allows you to charge notebooks with a power of up to 100W with the same port.
Along with this port there are also two USB 3.1 ports, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, an RJ45 Ethernet connection and even a microphone output.
In short, this is a complete external GPU solution that will provide enough power to play any game on all types of computers. The Lenovo Legion BoostStation will be available in May 2020 at a price starting at $250.
