Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH

84.1% Lenovo Legion Y530 (i7-8750H, GTX1060) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
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?

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.

Lenovo Legion Y530: A Non-Gamer Reviews A Gaming Laptop
Source: Tech Girl English Archive.org version
Gaming laptops are by no means cheap, but in terms of the power that you get with this entry-level gaming laptop, you get bang for your buck. The SSD hard drive ensures that you always have enough space and while the 8GB RAM was perfect for what I used it for, you can upgrade this when you save up some cash.

95% Lenovo Legion Y530 review: Affordable portable gaming with hit-and-miss performance
Source: Techaeris English Archive.org version
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.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile: 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.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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


i7-8750H: 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. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

Lenovo: Lenovo ("Le" from English legend, novo (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. As of 2004, the company was the largest laptop manufacturer in China and, after acquiring IBM's PC division in 2005, the fourth largest in the world. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company manufactures monitors, projectors, servers, etc, and specializes in developing, manufacturing and marketing consumer electronics, personal computers, software, enterprise solutions and related services.

In 2016, the company ranked first in the world in computer sales. It still held it in 2023 with about 23% global market share. Important product lines are Thinkpad, Legion and Ideapad.

In 2011, it acquired a majority stake in Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Motorola Mobility was purchased, which gave Lenovo a boost in the smartphone market.


79.78%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
