Review of the Lenovo Legion Y740-17IRHg: Gaming bolide gets high marks for its great power delivery and low heat development
Lenovo's gaming notebook displays all current games smoothly on its matte 17.3-inch screen (144 Hz, G-Sync, FHD, IPS) and also offers great connectivity: a combination of SSD + HDD, 16 GB of RAM (Dual-Channel mode) & a Thunderbolt 3 port.

The exteriors of the 17.3-inch gaming notebook Lenovo Legion Y740-17IRHg, which we tested recently, are the same as on its sibling model Legion Y740-17ICH. Not much has been changed on the inside, either. Again, Lenovo has chosen a Turing GPU from Nvidia for its new model. The only difference is the Coffee Lake processor, which has been replaced by a Coffee Lake Refresh chip. Our test unit was equipped with a  Core i7-9750H and a GeForce RTX 2060. 

The device does what it is made to do: It displays all games in our database smoothly at Full-HD resolution and high to maximum settings. The device's panel supports Nvidia's G-Sync technology. We are pleased to say that the notebook does not heat up particularly even under maximum load.   

Find out more about this new gaming notebook and its test results in our review of the Lenovo Legion Y740-17IRHg.
