Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube Review: Big Gaming Performance In A Small Package

Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube: Cinebench And PCMark 8

We kicked off our tests with two well-known benchmarks: Cinebench and PCMark 8. We have large comparison pools for both tests.

Cinebench R11.5 64-bit
Content Creation Performance

Based on Maxon Cinema 4D software, this test uses a 3D scene and polygon and texture manipulation to assess GPU and CPU performance. We run the Main Processor Performance (CPU) test, which builds a still scene containing about 2,000 objects, for a total polygon count above 300,000.

Neither of the Y710 Cube’s Cinebench scores knocked us over. That said, its single-threaded test was a solid 1.9.

Futuremark PCMark 8
Simulated Application Performance

PCMark 8 simulates the workloads computers face in several different settings, including home and office use. The benchmark also has a test that simulates a creative professional’s usage, as well as battery and storage tests. We ran the tests with OpenCL acceleration enabled to leverage the power of the CPU and GPU.


The PCMark 8 numbers looked more promising, as the Y710 Cube landed just behind the muscular Cybertron CLX Ra. That left us itching to see what the PC could do in the tests that matter most to gamers: the graphics benchmarks.
