Lenovo Legion Y740 Review: PCMark And 3DMark Performance

Next we ran PCMark 10, which simulates real-world productivity, content creation and content consumption scenarios using several common applications. This is a trace-base benchmark that employs specific, real software applications and workloads.

Only a few percentage points separate the fastest machines in the various PCMark 10 tests, save for one. The only test with a larger delta was the digital content creation test, where the Lenovo Legion Y740 pulled out in front. This is most likely due to the more powerful GPU, fast SSD, and capable cooling solution inside the machine.

Synthetic DirectX Gaming And Graphics Testing
3DMark is a synthetic GPU benchmark for assessing graphics performance.  3DMark supports both DX11 and DX12, depending on the particular test being run, which makes it handy for testing GPUs of various performance levels.

3DMark Fire Strike
The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q in the Y740 performs about on par with a GeForce GTX 1070 here. We are going to refrain from any judgment until we see some actual in-game performance, though we were hoping to see more of a boost from the beefier GPU here.
Alienware M15 3DMark TimeSpy
In the more taxing DX12-based Time Spy benchmark, the GeForce RTX 2070 Max Q in the Y740 landed in second place, just behind the full GeForce GTX 1080 in the Alienware 17 R4.
