Reviews for the Lenovo Legion Y920-17IKB
Black and red behemoth. Lenovo’s successor to the massive Y900 desktop replacement features a Kaby Lake CPU and a powerful GTX 1070. Much of the rest of the package remains the same—so are these updates enough to keep it relevant in such a competitive and selective market?

Big and heavy though it is, the Lenovo Legion Y920 boasts some serious gaming firepower and a mechanical keyboard, not to mention one-touch overclocking and Dolby Atmos sound. For about the same money, however, you could spring for our favorite gaming notebook with a superior graphics card.

Personally, I wouldn’t pick this over any of the other Max-Q laptops I’ve tried. Even if I could live with the weight and size — or even get a mouse so I don’t have to use the trackpad — I simply cannot live with that keyboard.

Lenovo’s first attempt at making a flagship gaming laptop is an effort worth commending, it is one huge 17-inch gaming laptop I really won’t mind using it for work on the go, as it offers great performance and features that you really can’t find in other laptops for the price of RM12,999, things such as the mechanical keyboard, Core i7-7820HK processor, 32GB of RAM, the two PCI-e solid state drives and a G-Sync display will usually cost an additional RM3000 on competing laptops, which is why I won’t consider it to be an expensive nor affordable gaming laptop. The Lenovo Legion Y920 is meant for those who really wants serious computing and gaming power on-the-go with a decent battery life, and if you can handle that weight, you should consider this purchase.

The Lenovo Legion Y920 is a wonderful beast of a machine. It makes few compromises, and the performance is amazing for whatever task you're trying to complete. Sure, it would be nice to have the Xbox Wireless Adapter built in, and some Windows Hello support, but I'm happy with the PC.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (Laptop): Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds. These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing. » 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.
7820HK: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture running at 2.9 - 3.9 GHz. It is the second fastest model of the consumer H-series in the beginning of 2017. The chip also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU clocked at 350 - 1100 MHz and is manufactured in a 14 nm process (improved compared to Skylake). Compared to the Core i7-7820HQ, the 7820HK lacks business features like vPro or TXT support.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
