Metro 2033 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

Metro 2033
Metro 2033 is your basic post-apocalyptic first person shooter game with a few rather unconventional twists. Unlike most FPS titles, there is no health meter to measure your level of ailment; rather, you’re left to deal with life, or lack thereof, more akin to the real world with blood spatter on your visor and your heart rate and respiration level as indicators.

Lenovo's system skips over the bottom spot, though once again falls just shy of Maingear's 2013 Potenza, which boasts an overclocked GeForce GTX 660 card. The good news is that even though performance generally trails Maingear by a few frames per second, it's not anything that will be noticeable in real-world gameplay.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat
DX11 Gaming Performance
  Call of Pripyat is the third installment of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series. We ran this test with all settings on Ultra and with DX11. As with our other benchmarks, we ran S.T.A.L.K.E.R. at three common display resolutions and recorded the frame rates from the Sun Shafts module.

More of the same is seen in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. We're beating a dead horse at this point, so rather than focus on a few fps difference between similar setups, the point of emphasis here should be that Lenovo's system is capable of playing DX11 titles with the eye candy turned up.
