The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 14 with the Nvidia GPU is better for gaming

With the Yoga Slim 7 14, Lenovo offers users the choice between AMD and Intel processors. We have tested both versions.

We had already tested the Yoga Slim 7 14 with the Ryzen 7 4800U processor, and we were especially surprised by the very high CPU performance. However, there are still delivery issues with this processor. Alternatively, Lenovo offers even slower Ryzen CPUs as well as Intel CPUs. This is also the case with our test device that is equipped with the Core i7-1065G7 (Ice Lake, 10 nm). The performance of the quad-core processor is decent in the Yoga Slim 7, and AMD and Intel are still about equal in single-core performance, but the Ryzen CPUs have a clear advantage in the Multi tests.

To further increase graphics performance, Lenovo combines the Intel processor with a dedicated graphics card from Nvidia. The GeForce MX350 is a low mid-range chip, and the new integrated GPUs already come quite close to this performance level. Especially the RX Vega 8 of the Ryzen 7 4800U is very fast. Overall, the Intel/Nvidia combination is better suited for gaming in this case.

However, the additional graphics card also has a negative effect on emissions, since on the one hand, the fan becomes much louder under load, and on the other hand, the surface temperatures are also significantly higher. The battery life is on par, though.

If you want to game a lot, you can take a calm look at the Yoga Slim 7 14 with the Intel/Nvidia combination, but for most users, the AMD model (even with the somewhat slower Ryzen 7 4700U) is certainly the better all-rounder.

I grew up with computers and modern consumer electronics. I am interested in the technology since I had my first computer, a Commodore C64, and started building my own PCs after that. My focus here at Notebookcheck is the business segment including mobile workstations, but I also like to test new mobile devices. It is always a great experience to review and compare new products. My free time is filled with a lot of sports, in the summer mainly on my bike.
