Series: Lenovo has taken a very wise step in refreshing its existing Legion lineup with mobile Intel 9th generation processors as well as the GTX Turing graphics processing units. The Lenovo Legion Y540 in particular is all gunned up with a GTX 1650 unit in tandem with the need for upkeep of technology through the introduction of the 9th generation quad-cores. Those who are seeking for a decent gaming laptop while balancing on a thread of strict budget will one way or another find a kindred spirit in the updated version of the Lenovo Legion Y540.

Just like any other existing gaming laptop in the scene, the Lenovo Legion Y540 comes equipped with core specifications which are designed to cater the standard clientele’s gaming needs. Thanks to the integration of Intel 9th generation processors in the Lenovo Legion Y540 model, performance rate is attested to demonstrate just as well as desktop computers. Thanks to a clock rate of up to 4.5 GHz the updated version of the Lenovo Legion Y540 can sustain demanding Triple A (AAA) games with barely any stress. On top of that, the Lenovo Legion Y540 boots up Windows 10 as its main central operating system. The collaborative efforts of both the Intel 9th Gen processor and Windows 10 welcome newest titles hailing from the gaming scene in ultimate 4k resolution with stunning visual graphics to boot.

The stunning visual graphics mentioned above are achieved through the technology of NVIDIA Turing GPU architecture and also the revolutionary RTX platform. The Lenovo Legion Y540 in particular is manned with the GTX 1650 unit. The GTX 1650 graphics processing unit is one of the most promising GPUs to render graphics to an astounding level of brilliance. It houses the NVIDIA Turing architecture, which is the sole technology to utilize ray-tracing in order to render in-game graphics to achieve an impressive level of realism. Not only that, power efficiency from NVIDIA Turing shaders guarantees a significant increase of performance up to 1.4 times the power compared to the previous generations. An amplified power efficiency supplies a holistic boost in performance for a faster, cooler, and even quieter gaming experience. Impressively enough, the Lenovo Legion Y540 combats built-up heat from long hours of gaming with the all new Lenovo Coldfront technology. The Coldfront brings to the table a dual-channel thermal system which can provide individual system cooling approaches on both the CPU and GPU all at the same time.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 (Laptop): Mid range dedicated graphics card for laptops based on the desktop GTX 1650 and therefore the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) without raytracing and Tensor cores. 

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

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.  

9750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.6 - 4.5 GHz (4 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.

15.6":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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.


78%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
