Lenovo has been showing off gaming test results for both its upcoming Legion Y700 gaming tablet and Legion Y90 gaming smartphone. Although the 8.8-inch Android tablet has a Snapdragon 870 SoC compared to the phone’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the Legion Y700 still managed to produce very promising results.

Lenovo is continuing to tease its Legion Y700 tablet and Legion Y90 smartphone and this time the OEM has released a comparison of game FPS rates and temperature development. Obviously, the larger form of the Legion Y700 tablet helps keep it cool, but the Legion Y90 sports a dual-engine cooling system to aid with thermal regulation. The 8-inch tablet is fitted with a Snapdragon 870 processor while the smartphone has a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip.

The first test (see images below) features the game Honor of Kings, which is run for 30 minutes on both devices for the comparison. The Y90 maintains a terrific frame rate of 119.8 FPS while hitting a warm but fine 39.2 °C. However, the SD 870 and its Adreno 650 can keep up with the SD 8 Gen 1 and Adreno 730 combination, with the Legion Y700 tablet managing a very similar frame rate of 119.1 FPS and even a lower temperature of 36.5 °C.

In The Original God, the Y90 phone utilizes its higher-specced SoC and custom cooling system to produce figures of 59.2 FPS and 42.2 °C, which the compact tablet cannot surpass. But once again, the Legion Y700 proves to be a mouthwatering prospect for gamers looking for an 8-inch tablet that offers power and performance without obstacles: The slate delivers 58.3 FPS at 44.5 °C. Lenovo has yet to reveal the price tags and release dates for the Legion Y700 and Legion Y90.
