Lenovo Y740 Gaming Laptop Benchmarks – 21 Games Tested!
So just how welders are performing games I'll be testing out 21 games at all setting levels to give you an idea of performance and then compare it with some other gaming laptops afterwards, just quickly before we jump into the benchmark results I'll cover off the specs. In my unit, I've got the Intel: i7 8750 H, CPU 90 watt, Nvidia RT, X, 2070, max Q, graphics and 16 gig of memory running and dual channel. There are a few different configurations available there. You can find examples and updated prices linked in the description. Something worth noting is that the Lenovo Vantage software allows us to either run the machine in hybrid mode, so within video optimists for better battery life or to disable the Intel integrated graphics for higher levels of performance, all testing here was done with hybrid mode off, which Should give us a boost in games, and this also lets us use G sync, otherwise, I've also tested with performance mode enabled for best results. We'Ll only be covering gaming performance in this video. So if you're new to the channel you'll definitely want to get subscribed for the upcoming full review, let's start out by going through all 21 games at all setting levels, then afterwards, we'll see how the Y 740 compares to some other laptops and see how it stacks Up the division 2 was tested with the built in benchmark, and this is only my second time testing this game. Like the first time on the Y 540, the 1 lower was a fair bit behind the average.
At Ultra there, the average FPS are a little higher. Now, due to the better GPU battlefield, 5 was tested in campaign mode with RTX off shown by the purple bars. It played fine even at Ultra settings. Third 1 low performance was somewhat inconsistent between setting levels. Rtx on only looks good at highest settings. In my opinion, however, when comparing even r tx on at low settings, the performance with r tx off at Ultra is comparable, while looking better battlefield 1 was also tested in campaign mode and, like always it's running well and performing better than the new battlefield. 5. Just gern, with over 100 FPS averages achievable at Ultra settings and playing very smoothly with consistent 1 lows. Apex legends was tested with either all settings at maximum or all settings at the lowest possible values as it doesn't have predefined setting presets. It was running well at Ultra settings. However, it was possible to boost average FPS by 37 with minimum settings. Shadow of the Tomb Raider was tested with the built in benchmark and the results here are pretty good. Overall, there we'll see how this game and others compared with other laptops, soon Far Cry new dawn was tested with the built in benchmark. This game seems to be fairly CPU heavy, so the results aren't really all that different compared to other laptops. I'Ve tested, regardless of the GPU that pad with Far Cry 5, was also tested with the built in benchmark and the results were ahead of the newer fakhr and you don't just covered, but we'll see how this one compares to some other laptops later fortnight was tested With the replay feature, our lowest settings were getting very high frame rates, while epic settings was still easily averaging above 100 with decent one percent lower to overwatch is another well optimised game and was tested in the practice range and again very high frame rates.
Here, with the 300 FPS frame cap being hit at low and medium settings, while even maximum still provided above 100 for the 1 lower metro Exodus was tested using the built in benchmark, most parts of the game perform a fair bit better than this. So don't. Take these results as a good indication of what to expect throughout the entire game it's more of a worst case, but does let you perform the same test to compare against csgo was tested using the you'll, ethically FPS benchmark and like fortnight in overwatch. I noticed this game was performing very well better than most other machines. I think this is a result of having the Intel GPU removed from the equation. Many more powerful laptops, I've tested, get the framerate high settings has in this test at low settings. Just for a quick comparison, Rainbow six siege was tested with the built in benchmark even with maximum ultra settings we're getting above 100 for the 1 learn a good result. Pub G was tested using the replay feature, and the results here were good above what I normally see and they noted similar with the Wi Fi 40. So I'm thinking this game seems to benefit more from removing the Intel, graphics, Assassin's, Creed Odyssey was tested with the built in benchmark and, from my experience, seems to be a fairly CPU heavy game at lower settings. The Wi Fi 40, I recently tested, was actually ahead. Despite having 16 60 TI graphics, possibly due to the fact, it has the new 9 758 compared to the 87 58.
In my, why 740, but also a higher power limit, dota 2 was tested playing in the middle lane, with an average amount of action going on and was playing quite well, even with ultra settings with very high frame rates and no issues that I could notice. Watchdogs. 2 uses a lot of resources, though the results was still pretty good here, with almost 60 FPS averages at Ultra settings, it was playing perfectly fine maxed out Ghost Recon wildlands is another resource intensive game and was tested with the built in benchmark. Keep in mind that to hit 60fps in this test, you need a pretty beefy laptop. So overall, these are decent results with much higher hit at lower levels. The Witcher 3 was also playing well at Ultra settings and is another like watchdogs that I don't think needs a crazy high frame rate to enjoy with 90 FPS averages and almost 60 for the 1 low. At Ultra. It was playing well, doom, was tested using Vulcan and is a game that usually hits really high frame rates, and that was also the case here with well over 100 FPS, even for the 1 low at Ultra settings. So playing perfectly fine. Strange Brigade was another game that was tested with Vulcan, and this one was running well with the built in benchmark still over 100 FPS at Ultra settings and above 200 with low settings with relatively high 1 low results compared to averages. Shadow of wall was tested with the built in benchmark and is a game.
I found the benefit from invidious nuturing architecture and very high settings would just shy of 100 FPS in this test. Let'S also take a look at how this config of the Lenovo Y 740 compares to 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 I've got the Y 740 highlighted in red near similarly SPECT machines, it's behind the razor blade pro 17 with similar specs. However, that does boost the GPU to ohio 100 watts over clocks, the GPU and under bolts, the CPU out of the box. So if we manually made some of these changes, we'd see higher performance, but these are all out of the box performance results. The average frame rate is basically the same as the new gigabyte Aero. I recently covered, though there was a higher 1 lower from the Y 740. These are the results from far cry 5 with ultra settings in the built in benchmark. I found this to be a pretty CPU heavy test and the 1 lower is a bit lower compared to the error 15 with same G, you know, though the error does have a slightly newest CPU into highest CPU power limit. Despite this, third, the average framerate in this test is still close to some twenty eighty max Q and twenty seventy machines. These are the results from shadow of the Tomb Raider with the built in bench market highest settings same result as the error 15.
Here, though, a fair bit behind the non max Q, 20 70 machines now, however, also a decent amount above the 20 60 results. Overall, the y7 40 is performing quite well as a result of the increased GPU power limit, while in performance mode and also the ability to run it with hybrid mode disabled which unlocks full performance of the r tx, 20 70 max Q, graphics, all games tested will Running well, even with higher setting levels, there are some issues with fan, speed that I'll address in the upcoming thermal testing video. However, the option to disable hybrid mode is an excellent feature for boosting gaming performance and is something I wish all laptops at least offered. Even if you don't want to use it or change as it does require a reboot to apply, I think, giving the user. The choice is best there's, no under vaulting or overclocking done out of the box, like other machines such as the Razer Blade Pro 17 through to that 90 watt power limit and option to disable hybrid mode. We should see increased performance in games compared to other standard 2070 max q laptops, many of which have an 80 watt GPU power limit and are impacted by optimist. Let me know what you thought of the gaming performance from the lenovo y 740 gaming laptop down in the comments and, if you're new to the channel you'll definitely want to get subscribed for the full review to see everything.
