74% Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Badly designed. Even though it might not be the fault of the processor manufacturer, AMD-based notebooks do not have the best reputation. The reviewed model of the new Lenovo Y700 confirms this statement. The alleged gaming notebook is hardly suitable for gaming, although the performance should be sufficient in theory.

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.


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

AMD Radeon R9 M385X: Fast mid-range graphics card with 14 compute shaders.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
AMD Carrizo:

FX-8800P: Top Carrizo APU of 2015 containing two "Excavator" CPU modules (with 4 integer and 2 FP cores counted as 4 compute cores). Performance can differ greatly depending on the configured TDP (ranging from 12 to 35 Watts).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.  

6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.
