Lenovo IdeaCenter AIO Y910 Review - Page 2 of 2 - Tech Altar

System Benchmarks

Sure, Kaby Lake, or Skylake+ has just been released and Lenovo’s AIO Y910 will likely catch the upgrade bug like their ThinkPad’s and Legion gaming laptops have. But until then, we still have an acceptable CPU that should give a good show for us. In general it won’t break records, it’s not even overclockable, but then it doesn’t need to be.

Gaming Benchmarks

For gaming benchmark we’re using a small collection of games that favor all sides, so you can get a good sense of how this (not so) little AIO can perform. For laptops and other systems going forward we’ll only be showing the average FPS at 1080P, 1440P and if applicable (not here, for instance) 2160P. The combination won’t win any extreme performance awards, though they aren’t necessarily supposed to, either The 6700 and 1080 should still be a perfect pairing at 1440P, the resolution of the screen used here.

Conclusion

A gaming AIO is a bit of a strange proposition, something I’m still not sure fits comfortably within anything other than an niche. That may be, but the quality of the AIO Y910 from Lenovo is quite good overall. Despite being lower-powered components, expected to fit into a smaller chassis, it still does one heck of a job letting you play games. The 1440P resolution is perfect given what’s inside and more than sufficient. In the space saving compartment an AIO does net you all the components in one tight package, though leaves less room for upgrading if you choose to increase things later. The good news is that it’s a fairly well engineered package, monitor and all. If anything, the great quality helps to further ease any stigma surrounding an AIO as a gaming machine.

It’s not without it’s cons, however. The back panel is difficult to put back on and the lack of a 4K screen option do make for a curious design decision. Regardless, it’s a fine machine that should be considered if you’re looking for a space-saving way to accommodate gaming in a smaller area. Or if you like the design.

Lenovo IdeaCenter AIO Y910 Review
A very good machine that gets more right than wrong. The specs are plenty for many current games and the upgradability is a huge plus. It relieves the stigma associated to an AIO in gaming.
