88.2% Lenovo Yoga C940-14IIL Laptop Review: Premium Ice Lake convertible is a strong competitor for the Dell XPS 13 | Notebookcheck
Lenovo wants to bring its premium Yoga convertible to the next level, with the help of the latest Ice Lake CPUs from Intel. Compared with the predecessor, Lenovo has not changed much and instead has opted to work on a few weak-points. In our review, this strategy certainly pays off!
95% Lenovo Yoga C940 14 review: The best you can get, from a Dolby Atmos to a Core i7-1065G7
Source: Neowin English
There's very little I can say about the Yoga C940 that isn't good. It's almost the perfect PC. The Dolby Vision screen and Dolby Atmos soundbar make the media consumption experience one of the best around, the the Ice Lake CPUs and convertible form factor mean that you can do more with your PC.

Lenovo Yoga C940 14-inch initial review: A multimedia powerhouse
Source: Pocket Lint English
Given the hinge potental to reposition this laptop in multiple orientations, this Yoga is the ultimate media powerhouse, ideal for marathon work or play sessions. It looks great thanks to smaller bezel than before, it sounds great thanks to that Dolby Atmos soundbar hinge. It's an accomplished laptop that's one step closer to perfection.

Lenovo Yoga C940 (14) review – a premium 2-in-1 rocking Intel’s Ice Lake processors
Source: Laptop Media English
One of the strongest points of this laptop is its display. Its 1080p IPS panel (LG LP140WF9-SPE2) has good maximum brightness, comfortable viewing angles, great contrast ratio and doesn’t use PWM to adjust its brightness levels. In terms of color representation, it is able to recreate 94% of the colors in sRGB and with the help of our Gaming and Web design profile, the display reaches an Average dE of 0.7, which is great for color-sensitive work.

Is it worth spending a few extra Benjamims for the 4K display over the cheaper FHD option? Aside from a meaurable cut in battery life, the 4K SKU brings both deeper colors and a brighter display.

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.


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

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q: Mid range dedicated graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the GTX 1650 but with reduced clock speeds and power consumption. Uses the Turing architecture (TU117 chip in 12nm FFN) but without Raytracing or Tensor cores.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G4 (Ice Lake 48 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 48 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel produced.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Ice Lake:

1065G7: Ice Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock between 1.3 - 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced in 10nm at Intel.

1035G4: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.1 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a relatively fast Iris Plus G4 graphics card  and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

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++).

1.35 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

2 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


87.78%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
