Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH
The Lenovo Legion Y530 does not waste much time with questions about the design, but delivers a lot of performance for an affordable price instead. After the review of the GTX 1050 Ti SKU, we now have a look at the model with the more powerful GTX 1060. What can users expect from this laptop?
While the design is sleek and the laptop runs well for the most part, our review unit as configured didn’t come without its performance issues. While I wouldn’t recommend the Lenovo Legion Y530 as we tested it, I’d definitely recommend it if you’re willing to spend a bit more on a bigger SSD drive and the GeForce GTX 1060 graphics option.

The $899 Lenovo Legion Y530 is a very good gaming laptop for the price. Packaged in an elegant, slim design, it has solid overall performance, a compact footprint and enough gaming power to play titles at low settings. Its biggest shortcomings are a display with poor color reproduction and an embarrassingly bad webcam placement.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.

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.
8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading.
