Intel UHD Graphics 610: Integrated GPU (GT1) with 12 EUs found on some low-end Pentium Gold CPUs (e.g. Whisky-Lake based 15 W ULV series). Same performance as the old HD Graphics 610 and 510.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Pentium Gold 6405U: Comet Lake based low power dual-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock at 2.4 GHz (no Turbo) with HyperThreading (4 threads). The integrated memory controller supports only LPDDR3-2133/DDR4-2400 (compared to DDR4-2666 in the Core i3) and using cTDP down the power consumption and performance can be adjusted by the OEM (800 MHz, 12.5 W).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.
