Lenovo Legion Go Handheld PC Gaming Machine Officially Revealed

Rumours of Lenovo joining the likes of ASUS ROG were true. Lenovo has finally, officially revealed the Lenovo Legion Go, its answer to the handheld PC gaming machine form factor, as popularised by the Steam Deck.

The Lenovo Legion Go packs an AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme processor and AMD RDNA graphics chips, the same CPU-GPU combo seen in the ROG Ally. And like the Ally, the Legion Go will be a Windows 11 PC.

What’s a bit different with the Legion Go is that it takes cues from the Nintendo Switch where it has removable joysticks called the Legion TrueStrike controllers. But with one significant change: it uses hall effect joysticks rather than the potentiometer-based sticks those Switch Joy-Cons have, so this should alleviate any concerns for joystick drifting (when an analog stick doesn’t center properly making for inaccurate inputs).

The TrueStrike controllers has one peculiar gimmick that justifies the controller being detachable. You can play FPS games in FPS mode where the right controller becomes a vertical mouse. There are extra buttons on the right controller that doesn’t fit a standard controller layout. But it makes a whole lot of sense when used as a tall, vertical mouse. It requires the controller to attach to a controller base.

Here are the revealed specs and other notable details of the Lenovo Legion Go:

  • CPU: AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme
