Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p

For the performance it offers, the 15 inch Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p is a steal. Costing noticeably less than machines with similar hardware - this is the gaming rig to buy for those who couldn't afford one before. It features a minimalist design, in simple brushed black aluminum. Red tints on keys and the JBL speakers give it a few tasteful highlights. The audio is loud and clear, and it's easy to turn it up high enough to annoy the neighbors without distortion. At a rather bulky 2.9 kg, this heavy weight won’t break your back, but it’s not ultra portable either.

As should be expected, it packs a punch with graphics performance. The 1920x1080 resolution supports crisp and gorgeous color and contrast, the screen is simply bold and bright, beating out the competition. With its dual Nvidia GeForce GT 750M GPUs with 2GB of VRAM and 2.2-GHz Intel Core i7-4702MQ quad-core processor, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p performs quite well in demanding games on medium to low settings. With the power it packs, it is no surprise that the battery life is short. But this is standard when it comes to gaming laptops. This machine can also be configured differently to match a desired price point. For gamers on a budget, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p provides the best value for the performance it brings.

82% Review Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p Notebook | Notebookcheck
The experiment continues. Lenovo's IdeaPad Y500 made quite a splash when it was introduced some time ago: the 15-inch multi-purpose system offered a second Nvidia GPU as an option. The new IdeaPad Y510p has updated hardware and now features a GeForce GT 750M SLI instead of the GeForce GT 650M SLI. Can the dual-DirectX 11 notebook threaten the established high-end competition?

Lenovo’s Y50 is affordable and reasonably quick, but it does more to damage the company’s gaming reputation than to enhance it. The system’s unforgivable flaw is the display, which would be disappointing on a system sold at half the price. A low-contrast panel with poor viewing angles has no business being part of a gaming laptop.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p suffers from being a very good gaming laptop in a crowded category where it is not the very best. Despite this, it's a well-built gaming rig, and it will play even demanding high-end games without so much as a stutter. While the Editors' Choice MSI GX60 1AC-021US remains our top pick due to its longer battery life and affordability, the IdeaPad Y510p is a good machine, and worth looking at if you want gaming prowess combined with Lenovo's reliability.

Overall, we like the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p: it’s attractively designed, with top-quality ergonomics; it’s a swift performer with a decent specification; and it doesn’t cost the earth. However, the Asus N550JV – with its touchscreen and superior display – edges it in this price bracket.

No question the Y510p SLI I5 gaming laptop makes a lot of sense: top gaming performance for the money, combined with relatively good (though TN-panel) 1080p screen, good looks, comfortable backlit keyboard, very good sound system and 1TB SSHD. The only major issues are the heat and battery performance (on SLI) with the heat being the most important.

Power boost. Lenovo has enhanced the graphics performance of its successful IdeaPad Y510p. The device is now available with either a GeForce GT 750M (SLI) or a GeForce GT 755M (SLI). We grabbed the brand new dual-GPU version and compared its performance with genuine high-end models.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p-59393383

Under the hood of the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p, you'll find an Intel i7 quad core processor, a dual GPU system by Nvidia, and a generous 8 GB of RAM. This gives an ideal gamer's laptop at a bargain. Windows 8 is used as operating system. Audiophiles will appreciate the built-in Dolby Home Theater-certified JBL speakers.

The case is solid, but it does not look impressive at all. The Lenovo Ideapad Y510p features a stunning 15.6-inch 1080p LED backlit, anti glare screen with wide viewing angles and vivid and crisp images. This powerhouse weighs in at only 2.69 kg and competes with other slim gaming laptops in the market.

The downside of this product is its battery life of only 3 to 5 hours depending on the load. Like any other laptop in the market, it gets warm after a while of usage, but its seems to fare significantly better than the rest of the pack. Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p can be considered a great gaming laptop with great value for your money.

60% Review: Ideapad Y510p, Lenovo's Only 15.6" Gaming Laptop
Source: Digital Versus English
The only gamer-dedicated laptop in Lenovo's vast catalogue, the Ideapad Y510p uses two graphics cards to provide high-performance gaming. The Ideapad Y510p is a well-built laptop that can support a wide range of uses thanks to a beefy configuration (two graphics cards with SLI, Core i7...). It's just a shame that Lenovo didn't concentrate a little more on the screen, which is very bad, and the speakers.

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M SLI: High-end SLI-setup of two GeForce GT 750M, based on the Kepler-architecture and manufactured in 28nm.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M SLI: High-end SLI-setup of two GeForce GT 755M, based on the Kepler-architecture and manufactured in 28nm.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.  

4700MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.
