Lenovo equips all-in-one, laptop and desktop for gamers with GTX 1080

Lenovo has unveiled a laptop, a research assistant and a desktop intended for gamers. All three systems have up to an Intel Core i7 of the Skylake generation on board as well as an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080.

Lenovo is deliberately unveiling the laptop and the two desktops at the same time as the Gamescom trade fair in Cologne, which opens its doors to visitors on August 18. The company emphasizes that systems are suitable for virtual reality. All three systems have the same black and red, science fiction-esque design accents.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y910 laptop will be equipped with up to a Core i7-6820HK processor, which has a turbo frequency of 3.6GHz. The quad-core CPU has a maximum of 64GB of DDR4 memory. In addition, the gaming notebook has a maximum of a laptop variant of the GTX 1080 with 8GB gddr5x memory on board. There is a maximum of 1TB HDD and two 512GB SSDs in raid-0 storage. The screen has a diagonal of 17.3″ and a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels.

The weight of the laptop is 4.6 kilograms and the keyboard is backlit. There are also two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a USB type-c port and HDMI-out. Lenovo will release the gaming laptop in November. Prices start at 2799 euros for a version with GTX 1070.

Lenovo gives the desktop the name IdeaCentre Y710 Cube. The housing weighs 7.4 kilograms, has a built-in handle for transport and measures 393.3 by 252.3 by 314.5 mm. Inside is a maximum of an Intel Core i7 processor of the Skylake generation, but Lenovo is not disclosing the options here at the moment. Furthermore, the PC runs a maximum of an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080, 32GB DDR4 RAM and a maximum of a 2TB HDD and a 256GB SSD. In addition, there is onboard WiFi, video output is via VGA and HDMI and the system has a total of four USB ports, three of which are USB 3.0.

The suggested retail price of the Y710 Cube starts at 899 euros and is available this month, but it is currently unknown which specifications users will receive for this. The Y710 Cube with a GeForce GTX 1070 already costs 1699 euros.

The more compact of the two desktops, the IdeaCentre AIO Y910, has a 27″ screen with almost no bezel around it and a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. On the outside you will also find a 720p webcam and integrated 7.1 speakers. there are three USB 3.0 ports on the side.The all-in-one measures 237.6 x 615.8 x 490.25 mm.

In addition, there is also a maximum of a Skylake-i7 and a GeForce GTX 1080 with 8GB vram, presumably the model that is also used in laptops. Its base clock is lower than that of the desktop model, but the difference is not big: 1556MHz versus 1607MHz. The boost clock is the same again at 1733MHz. However, these are the speeds of reference models from Nvidia and it is not certain whether Lenovo also uses them. This PhD student also has 32GB DDR4 RAM, a maximum of a 2TB HDD or a 256GB SSD and built-in WiFi.

The AIO Y910 will be available from September, for a suggested retail price from 1799 euros. It is unknown which GPU is included with that model. The version with a GTX 1070 has a suggested retail price of 2199 euros and is available from October. None of the three models can be found on Lenovo’s website at the time of writing.
