Lenovo's 17.3-inch gamer Legion Y740-17IRHg keeps a cool head under load
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 modelLegion 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 The only difference is the Coffee Lake processor, which has been replaced by a Coffee Lake Refresh chip.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.
What started as a side job during my computer science studies later became my main job: For more than 20 years now I have been working as an editor and author in the IT sector. While working in the print sector I also contributed to the creation of various loose-leaf publications and published original written pieces. I have been working for Notebookcheck since 2012.

I completed my master's degree in translation at the University of Vienna a few years ago and have been working as a translator for English, German and French ever since. I first started translating for Notebookcheck in 2017 and have learned more about computers than I ever imagined, and I have even become the person my family turns to for advice when it comes to consumer electronics. Other than that I also focus on everything connected to sustainability and renewable energy.
