The agony of choice. After our first review of the FHD version of the new Lenovo Y50 Gaming notebook, we are now focusing on a version with UHD display (3840x2160 pixels) and fast Samsung SSD. Full HD and matte or ultra HD and glossy? That's the question. We compare both displays.

The laptop uses a powerful 2.5GHz (up to 3.5GHz in Turbo mode) Intel Core-i7 4710HQ quad-core processor with 8GB of RAM and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M graphics that comes with 4GB of dedicated memory, which provides good results, so most of the newer games can be played with advanced settings, despite the slightly higher resolution. The impression spoils a standard TB hard disk so the additional system SSD in this case would really meant a lot. Nonetheless, the fact is that excellent performance is provided from a laptop available at this price, taking into account the configuration, and definitely gets a recommendation as an entry-level gaming model.
Positive: Excellent performances for the price range; NVIDIA graphics card; attractive design; good price.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
