Lenovo has added a NVIDIA RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU to its Y700 series, and the results are impressive.
Last year, Lenovo unveiled an updated Legion Y730 with a modern, mature look, and while we applauded the design change, the laptop was held back by underwhelming gaming performance in the form of a NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card (GPU). Yes, this big and beautiful laptop was only capable of handling low-impact games or AAA titles with lowered settings. Now, however, with the 17.3-inch Legion Y740, Lenovo has gone all-in, offering NVIDIA RTX 2060, 2070, and 2080 GPU options.
Lenovo supplied Windows Central with a review unit of a Legion Y740 with an RTX 2080 GPU, Intel Core i7-8750H processor (CPU), and 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, which costs about $2,320. It's not cheap, but I've certainly been having some fun with it for the last couple of weeks. It's a powerhouse, and while it checks a lot of boxes for gamers, there are some drawbacks you should know about.
