Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad Y560p-M61G3GE
Inner values. A lot of power for little money is Lenovo's promise for its IdeaPad Y560P. The configuration sounds good: Intel's quad core processor, Core i7-2630QM, and AMD's Radeon HD 6570M as the graphics card are installed for a price of only 900 euros. This review will shed light on the notebook's true capabilities and if there maybe is a hitch.

CommentAMD Radeon HD 6570M: Renamed Mobility Radeon HD 5700 series card with (optional?) GDDR5 support like the HD 5750.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
