Today at Gamescom, Lenovo has announced two new additions to its “Y” gaming series. These two new desktop machines pack the latest Intel processors, the all-new GTX 1080 graphics card, and unique form factors as well.
First off let’s talk about “the cube”. The Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is designed to pack the best specifications within a compact, portable form factor. The built-in handle on the case means that you can simply unplug the machine and bring it from your desk, living room, or even take it when travelling.
Under the hood the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube packs up a 6th generation Intel Core i7 processor, 32GB of DDR4 memory, up to 2TB of HDD storage and 256GB of SSD storage. It also comes with Windows 10 Home and up to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card with 8GB of memory. Customers can also add an optional Xbox One wireless controller and receiver with the machine to improve their gaming experience.
Ideal for gamers who want to stay competitive no matter where they play, the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube comes with a built-in carry handle for easy transport between gaming stations. Housed sleekly within a new, compact cube form factor, it features NVIDIA®’s latest GeForce® GTX graphics and 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processors to handle today’s most resource-intensive releases. The IdeaCentre Y710 Cube lets players confidently handle 4K gaming, VR and high-quality streaming with massive computing capabilities in real time, as well as multitask between editing a spreadsheet and streaming a movie.
The second announcement Lenovo made today was the new IdeaCentre AIO Y910, an all-in-one machine with the power of a larger desktop. Right up front you’ll find up to a 27″ Quad HD display with minimal bezels and front facing Harmon/Kardon speakers.
Lenovo also has high-end specifications powering this machine. The Y910 packs the brand new 7th generation Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32GB of DDR4 memory, up to 2TB of HDD storage and 256GB of SSD storage. The base model will come with a 17.3″ display at 1080p, but it can go all the way up to 27″ at 2560×1440. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is also found under the hood with a large array of ports on the back.
Proving a true gaming rig doesn’t need to take up an entire room, the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 captures the power of state-of-the-art PC desktops in an all-in-one (AIO) form and fits conveniently in places where bulkier PC can’t. Built entirely within a 27-inch Quad High Definition (2560×1440) borderless display, it cuts down on the sprawling hardware and cables that clutter traditional towers – without cutting down on game performance.
Lenovo has yet to reveal pricing or availability details for these two machines, but we should learn more soon.
