Performance, battery life of Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH (81LB00A5FR)
The Lenovo Legion Y530-15ICH (81LB00A5FR) can appeal to those who are looking for a versatile 15-inch notebook PC, especially in games.
While NVIDIA has launched its Turing RTX GPUs but the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB embedded version Pascal continues to do well in games, allowing the user to indulge in his favorite titles.
In practice the NVIDIA Optimus technology presents the GeForce GTX 1060 automatically and in real time only when the benefits – very modest – of the Intel UHD 630 solution are insufficient to perform the tasks requested. Integrated into the processor, the Intel UHD 630 is indeed maximized by Optimus because its reduced power consumption promotes autonomy. Of course, with the GeForce GTX 1060 or the Intel UHD 630, it is possible to view photos and videos.
Reactivity, an essential parameter in games, is required with this computer gamer. A 128 GB SSD is indeed present to host the OS and the main games / software. The SSD brings a better fluidity than a hard disk as well as starts / stops and launches games / applications much faster.
Good point, the SSD is accompanied by a hard drive of 1000 GB to offer a large total capacity, swift model with its speed of 7200 rpm against 5400 rpm as standard.
The heart of this computer gamer will appeal to demanding users in terms of overall power. It is equipped with a large amount of 16 GB RAM coupled with a Hexa Core i7-8750H Coffee Lake processor.
Compared to 8GB DDR4 and a Quad Core processor, such components ensure much faster processing in areas that are CPU and CPU intensive leveraging multicore. This is the case for example in photo editing, 3D rendering or video editing.
The contribution of the Hexa Core in games is however variable compared to a Quad Core.
As for battery life, rely on approximately 4 hours of battery operation while surfing the internet via Wi-Fi.
