85.6% Lenovo Legion Y740-17ICH (i7-8750H, RTX 2080 Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
A mid-range laptop equipped with a high-end GPU. The Lenovo Legion Y740 is just as powerful as some of the popular heavy hitters in the enthusiast gaming notebook market even if it doesn't quite look or feel the part.

The battery life is brief and the body is hefty, but Lenovo's Legion Y740 delivers fine value among big, high-powered gaming laptops, with speed and features that rival more expensive machines.

Source: Neowin English
If you're in the market for a gaming PC, you've obviously got a lot of options, but I think the 17-inch Lenovo Legion Y740 is a pretty good choice. It's massive, and we'll be taking a look at the 15-inch model in a week or two. But as long as you're OK with the size, you're good to go.

Hands on: Lenovo Legion Y740 review
Source: Techradar English
It’s crystal clear where Lenovo’s focuses were with its Y740 gaming laptops update: power, power and more power. However, this coupled with once-optional features coming standard has hiked the starting price up considerably.

2019 Lenovo Legion Y740 and Y540 gaming laptops – RTX graphics, G-Sync and improved cooling
Source: Ultrabook Review English
Nonetheless, I expect the Y540 to be a hit in the second part of the year, given its heritage and Lenovo’s aggressive pricing policies. It’s going to start at under $1000, but it’s months away from launch, so in the meantime you will find better value in some of the other best-buy gaming laptops out there.

Lenovo Legion Y740 review – a refresh with ray tracing capabilities
Source: Laptop Media English
You know, these gaming devices are getting sleeker and sleeker with every single year. And as we mentioned last year we were a little dissapointed to see the humble GTX 1050 Ti in a machine like the Legion Y730. It happened like Lenovo have heard us and hastily switched it for the brand new RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 Max-Q. And the result is… this laptop is a beast. Aluminum build, good looks, ferosious internals and great gaming power. When you insert a 144 Hz screen with a 95% coverage of sRGB and designer – level of color accuracy, things go near perfect with the Legion Y740.

Comment

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.


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU104 chip with 2,944 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Runs at reduced clock speeds compared to a laptop RTX 2080 to achieve a much lower power consumption.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q: High-End laptop graphics card based on the TU106 chip with 2,304 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM. Offers reduced clock speeds to achieve a much lower power consumption.NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 (Laptop): Mid range to high end laptop graphics card based on the Turing architecture with raytracing features and 1,920 shaders. Compared to the similar named desktop card it offers reduced clock rates.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
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. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
