Lenovo is solidifying itself as a serious player in the gaming market with its Y series of devices. The gaming market is continuing to rise in contrast to the downward trend of the general notebook market.

The latest generation of Nvidia GPUs should make graphically intensive hardware like VR and 4K panels more accessible to mainstream users. Lenovo has unveiled three new products as part of its gaming Y series of devices.

IdeaCentre Y910 AiO

Completely new to the portfolio is the Y910 AiO gaming system. This small form factor system utilizes a near-borderless 27-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display with a fast 144 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response time to keep up with fast-paced games. The removable rear cover allows easy access to the GPU, RAM, and storage drive.

Core specifications of the IdeaCentre Y910 AiO include:

  • 27" QHD (2560 x 1560) Display, 144 Hz, 5 ms response time

IdeaCentre Y710 Cube

The Y710 mini PC is Lenovo's lightweight and compact solution with a top handle for easy transporting. The internals are a tight fit, of course, but the side panel opens easily as needed.

Finally, the IdeaPad Y910 completes the roundup and will be Lenovo's first notebook sporting Pascal. The system is a refresh of the previously announced Y900 with individually backlit RGB keys, aluminum chassis, and velvet-covered palm rests. GPU options will be available up to a single GTX 1080 with 8 GB RAM.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
