Please help me make the right choice!
I’m thinking of buying a Lenovo Legion 5 (NOT Pro) with the following specs:
Intel® Core™ i7 processor -12700H | Alder Lake | Tetradeca-Core (3.50 GHz up to 4.70 GHz , 24 MB Smart Cache, 45 W)
16 GB (2×8) DDR5 / 2 slots
1 TB SSD | М.2 PCIe NVMe (2280)
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, GDDR6 – 8GB
I’m afraid I won’t be able to use those amazing specs to their max capacities because of overheating or other issues related to the fact those specs are heavily upgraded and I don’t know if the machine can handle them well under pressure. A quick research shows me cooling pads aren’t really that helpful.
I was initially interested in Legion 5 Pro but I need to sacrifice either CPU or GPU to fit within my budget. What I basically want is to play whatever I want for the next 7-8 years, if I need to lower game settings after a few years for new games it’s fine!
