About. Ill be testing out 20 games at all setting levels to give you an idea of how well it performs and then compare it with some other gaming laptops afterwards. Just quickly before we jump into the benchmark results Ill cover off the specs. In my unit. I ordered my L340 with the Intel i5 9300H CPU and Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics, as this seems to be a pretty popular budget friendly, option. Ive tested with 8gb of memory in single channel, as the machine only comes with one memory. Slot making speed boosts from dual channel, not possible.. There are different configurations of the L340 available, though you can find examples and updated prices linked in the description.. Unlike the higher tier Y540, there is no option to disable hybrid mode and fan speeds couldnt be adjusted. There was basically no options in the Lenovo Vantage software that could be used to increase. Performance. Well only be covering gaming performance in this video. So if youre new to the channel you'll definitely want to get subscribed for the upcoming full review. Lets start out by going through all 20 games at all. Setting levels then afterwards well see how the L340 compares with some other laptops. Battlefield. 5 was tested in campaign mode rather than multiplayer.. Medium settings played alright and was able to reach 60 FPS averages. However, the 1 lows were a fair bit below this, showing the occasional stuttering that I noticed regardless of setting level.

Battlefield 1, was also tested in campaign mode. However, its performing better than the newer Battlefield 5 just covered, where even ultra settings was playing well enough. For me, with close to 70 FPS averages with not really that big of an improvement seen by lowering settings. Apex Legends was tested with either all settings at maximum or all settings on the lowest possible values as it doesnt have predefined setting presets.. It felt a bit choppy at max settings and it was possible to improve average FPS by around 32 simply by setting everything to minimum. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark. The results from this test were again on the lower side. However, lowest settings was still able to average above 60 FPS in this test., Far Cry New Dawn was tested with the built in benchmark.. This game seems to be fairly CPU heavy and, while I think the i5 is certainly capable for gaming, the results are lower than I expected, probably due to the single channel memory. Configuration. Far Cry 5 was also tested with the built in benchmark and the results were ahead of the newer, Far Cry New Dawn just covered and well see how this one compares to some other laptops. Later.. The Division 2 was tested using the built in benchmark.. Medium settings was just below 60 FPS, so another title where youd most likely want to sit around low to medium for a decent frame.

Rate. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature. As a less demanding title. Even maxed out at epic settings was working well enough with around 70 FPS averages being reached, however, would more than double this at low settings? If needed. Overwatch is another well optimized game and was tested in the practice, range. Epic settings still played well. For me, as the 1 low was around the refresh rate of the display, while over 100 FPS was achieved at lower levels. Metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark. Most parts of the game perform a fair bit better than this. So dont take these results. As a good indication of what to expect throughout the entire game its more of a worst case, but does let you perform the same test to compare, against. CSGO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark and is a less demanding esports title that runs on basically anything.. Even with all settings maxed out, 100 FPS averages were still reached in this test. Rainbow. Six Siege was tested with the built in benchmark. At ultra settings. The results arent looking that bad here with 80 FPS for the average and still around 60 for the 1 low result. PUBG, was tested using the replay feature and ultra settings was still able to reach 60 FPS averages in this test with up to 80 at very Low settings, but perhaps more importantly, for a first person, shooter game like this: a higher 1 low, so more stable and less dips in performance.

Assassins, Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark and straight away. I can tell you this is the worst result. Ive seen in this test at ultra high settings., No matter, though, were not expecting top of the line performance with these specs.. The results at high settings and below are at least playable as this game. Doesnt need super high FPS to enjoy.. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane with an average amount of action going on and as a game that runs on basically any modern hardware. It was still playing well at ultra settings with above 80 FPS, while higher frame rates were possible at lower setting levels. Watch Dogs 2 is a resource, heavy game that still plays fine. For me with a solid 30 FPS. However, this was not possible at ultra settings.. Very high settings played ok and then there wasnt really too much of a difference performance wise stepping down to high.. It was a little choppy due to the lower than 30 FPS 1 low, much more playable at low settings.. Ghost Recon is another resource, intensive game and was tested with the built in benchmark.. Ultra settings in this test is tough, even on the better specced laptops. Ive used, however, were still able to get fair results at the lower levels.. The Witcher 3 was playing alright at high settings, where I was still able to average above 60 FPS and the dips in performance werent too noticeable.

Definitely more stuttering in ultra settings, as illustrated by the much lower 1 low result. DOOM was tested using Vulkan. And while I typically see 150 FPS in this game with other laptops, even at ultra settings, it was still very playable on the L340, as shown by the 1 low, which was still above 60 FPS, the refresh rate of the screen. So the dips werent too bad. Strange Brigade was another game that was tested with Vulkan and was running well for this machine with the built in benchmark.. Ultra settings still averaged 60 FPS with the 1 low, not too far behind with over 100 FPS possible at low settings. Lets also take a look at how this config of the Lenovo L340 compares with other laptops to see how it stacks up use these results. As a rough guide, only as they were tested at different times with different drivers. In Battlefield, 5 Ive got the L340 highlighted in red near similarly specced machines., As the only 1650 laptop Ive tested recently its down the bottom. However, it is also worth remembering that the L340 is the only laptop on this graph that was tested in single channel.. I did fully plan on installing dual channel memory, but only found out after opening it up that it has one slot. So this wasnt possible. Here are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark.. Again, for the same reasons just explained, the L340 is coming in at last place.

, Not only that, but as a CPU heavy game. The 9300H is probably giving us a little lower performance when compared against the 9750H. I still need to compare those in a future video though.. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider, with the built in benchmark at highest settings. Once more. The Lenovo L340 is in last place out of these laptops tested, but its important to note that it is also the cheapest of these machines. So you get what you pay for. When compared to other machines as weve just seen the Lenovo L340 doesnt look too good. Its worth, keeping in mind that the comparisons we just looked at are with maximum setting levels.. As we saw earlier, the L340 is definitely capable of playing modern games with good frame rates at low to medium settings. Just dont expect miracles at high or above.. It does, of course, depending on the title, but were limited by the single channel memory, as the L340 doesnt provide the option of dual channel.. I dont think that the i5 9300H CPU or GTX 1650 graphics are bad options in a laptop were just not able to get full performance out of this particular machine. Its a bit strange that Lenovo didnt include two memory slots on the L340. I guess perhaps they want to push people towards a higher tier model like the Y540 or something.. In any case, for the moment, I need to get my hands on more i5 and 1650 machines to see how this affects performance.

. At the moment, Im only able to compare to higher tier machines, I want to get more budget friendly options tested to compare with.. Let me know what you thought of the gaming performance from the new Lenovo L340 gaming laptop down in the comments and, if youre new to the channel youll definitely want to get subscribed for the full review to see everything.
