Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Gaming Benchmarks

Any laptop that has as much power as the ThinkPad P70 shouldn’t simply be squandered on legitimate work alone. The combination of the powerful Xeon with a slightly better than GTX 970M means it’s possible that it could also be a great companion when gaming on the road. Eventually it could even get certified to have external GPU capability for use with the included USB 3.1 Type C connectors.

The compilation is a more realistic representation of what games can be played and we use a 1920×1080 resolution as we have no illusions that that any mobile part is really going to provide the best experience at 4K. Will it play games at 4K? Absolutely, but below represents something more realistic, and something far more enjoyable than suffering through 24FPS of cinematic glory.

This is certainly more than capable of handling a plethora of games. It’s small on the screen, but click on it and you’ll be able to see the results in a glorious 8K picture. The Quadro M4000M inside the ThinkPad P70 has 1280 CUDA cores with a full 100W TDP for the chip alone. It might not be capable of playing at maximum settings at the full 4K resolution of the screen, but at 1080P you can turn the effects up and enjoy a very healthy and great experience. The screen looks glorious at 1080P even. It’s a very capable gaming machine that, while it isn’t its primary purpose, will do well as a means of entertaining you should you see the need.In essence, the ThinkPad P70 is a fine machine for gaming.


The Lenovo ThinkPad P70 is quite the machine. It’s a well balanced, well specced mobile workstation that almost literally has everything you’d ever need for such a traveling companion.There’s a lot to like about it, from the classic good looks to the spectacular screen and even to the relative small size. Sure, it’s a massive machine, but the dimensions aren’t so prohibitive, plus the ThinkPad P70, like all ThinkPads in recent times, is durable as all get out too.

The price is definitely nothing to scoff at, but you do get what you pay for. A machine that’ll last the entire equipment cycle with aplomb. It’s also fast, cool, relatively quiet and stunning to behold with its utilitarian and ageless design. It’s certainly not perfect, the battery life doesn’t last as long as we’d ideally like, but it’s a great machine with more a tremendous amount of connectivity and power to help power through whatever it is you do. And in answer to the question, it is most definitely a versatile mobile powerhouse.
