Lenovo Y7000 Gaming Laptop Benchmarks – 20 Games Tested!
The configuration Ive got, has an Intel: i7 9750H CPU, 80 watt, Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti graphics, 16gb of memory in dual channel and a 15.6, 1080p. 60Hz screen. Its also available with 144Hz, though this is just what mine came with and there are other different specs. You can pick too.. You can find different options and updated prices linked in the description.. The Lenovo Vantage software lets us select different performance modes. Ive done all testing with performance mode enabled for best results.. It also gives you the option of disabling hybrid mode, which basically turns off Optimus and will improve performance in some games.. 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 thermal testing and full review. Lets start out by going through all games at all setting levels then afterwards well see how the Y7000 compares with some other laptops. Red Dead. Redemption 2 was tested using the games built in benchmark tool. High settings was still giving fair results. Considering this is a somewhat resource heavy title, while medium and below was needed to average above 60. Fps. Battlefield 5 was tested in campaign mode, and the game was running. Quite well even maxed, out with the ultra setting preset, where even the 1 lows were above, the refresh rate of the panel. Control was performing well enough with the high setting preset. However, medium settings was better overall, where the Y7000 was able to average above 60 FPS.
In fact, it wasnt far off this even for the 1 low performance. 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 was still playing very well even with all settings at max easily over 100 FPS, while minimum settings sat on the 144 FPS frame, cap. Call of Duty, Modern Warfare was tested in campaign mode and Ive also tested it with the settings either maxed out or at Minimum., It was running well, even with all settings at maximum still averaging above 60 FPS without any problem. Borderlands, 3 was tested using the games built in benchmark and the high setting preset was just able to hit 60 for average FPS, while low and below was able To push beyond 100 FPS. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and the results were pretty decent for a 1660 Ti laptop, but well see how the Y7000 compares against other laptops in this game and more soon. Ghost Recon Breakpoint was also Tested with the benchmark tool and ultra settings were needed to average 60 FPS in this test, however, the 1 low was quite a bit lower comparatively so a little lower would probably be a good sweet. Spot. Fortnite was tested with the replay feature and as a less demanding game, epic settings was almost able to average 100 FPS with 1 low performance. Above the refresh rate of the 1080p display, and much higher results were possible with lower settings.
. Overwatch is another less demanding game and was tested in the practice. Range. Again, even with the epic setting preset, the average frame rate is quite high. Easily surpassing 100 FPS. CSGO was tested using the Ulletical FPS benchmark, and the results are much better here when compared to most other laptops with similar specs due to the option of disabling Optimus.. Every time I test this game with a laptop that only uses the Nvidia GPU without the Intel GPU getting in the way the performance is way. Up. Dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane and there was hardly any real, measurable difference between the different setting levels, let alone one youd, practically notice so might as well just play with all settings at max. Rainbow Six Siege was tested with the built in Benchmark and once again, very high frame rates, even with the highest ultra setting preset, with even the 1 low, not too far off 100 FPS. 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.. The Division 2 was also tested with the built in benchmark and although it was possible to average above 60 FPS at ultra settings, the 1 low was around half this, so lower settings would likely be needed for a more stable experience, but this seems pretty normal.
For this test. PUBG was tested using the replay feature., The game was still getting decent frame rates at ultra settings, at least when we consider the 60Hz 1080p screen that my Y7000 has. Even the 1 low performance was above this. However, we could greatly improve this with lower settings, which would be more beneficial if you have the 144Hz option. Assassins. Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark and as a resource heavy game. The frame rates werent that high with the higher setting presets, but this is pretty standard for this game and it doesnt need super high FPS to play., Far Cry. New Dawn was also tested with the games benchmark and the results are pretty similar compared to most other i7 based laptops that Ive tested on the channel.. The Witcher 3 was playing ok at ultra settings and was playable. However, there was a fairly big improvement just by playing with high settings, and I think the game still looks pretty good at high anyway., F1 2019 was tested using the games benchmark tool and, although max settings had decent average FPS, the 1 low performance was down substantially. However, stepping down just one level to high increased performance significantly. Lets also take a look at how this config of the Lenovo Y7000 compares with other laptops use. These results as a rough guide only as they were tested at different times with different drivers. In Battlefield 5. Ive got the Y7000 highlighted in red near similarly specced machines.
, In this case. Its performing closely to many of the other GTX 1660 Ti laptops that Ive tested like the Acer Helios 300. Although the 1 low performance isnt, quite as good, probably as the Helios, has an undervolt by default., Interestingly, despite having the same specs, the Y7000 was better in average FPS compared to the Y540 just below it.. These are the results from Far Cry 5 with ultra settings. In the built in benchmark. This time, the average FPS was basically the same as the Y540. However, the Helios 300 was noticeably ahead. Here., As this seems to be more of a CPU bound test. This isnt surprising again, as the Helios is undervolted by default.. We could probably expect similar gains to the Y7000 with some tweaks Ill. Look into that in an upcoming video for now were looking at stock results, which is what most people will use.. These are the results from Shadow of the Tomb raider, with the built in benchmark at highest settings. Like Battlefield 5. The Y7000 is around 5 FPS ahead of the Y540, with same specs, and only just one to two FPS. Behind the other 1660 Ti machines, Ive looked at so performance is about what Id expect with this hardware.. Overall, the gaming performance from the Y7000 is fair. Considering the specs., The GTX 1660 Ti graphics paired with i7 CPU and 16gb of memory in dual channel, offer a combination that can play pretty much any game with decent settings.
. The option of disabling Optimus to further increase gaming performance is just icing on the cake.. In the few games we looked at here, it seemed to perform a little better than the Y540, with same specs that Ive previously reviewed.. Let me know what you thought of the gaming performance from the Lenovo Y7000 gaming laptop down in the comments and, if youre new to the channel, consider getting subscribed for the full review to see everything.
