Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 3: Gaming And Graphics Testing

Futuremark’s well-known 3DMark benchmark suite features tests that target different types of computing devices. We opted for the Cloud Gate and Sky Diver tests, for which we have plenty of comparison data, but also as light-duty 3D graphics and gaming benchmarks that are well-suited to thin and light laptops. Sky Diver is a bit more strenuous, but still well within the limits of our test group.

Gaming And Graphics Benchmarks

In Cloud Gate, the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga performed slightly better than expected, as it outpaced the Acer Swift 3 in both benchmarks. Even though it performed admirably, the IGP doesn't have the same raw performance as a discrete GPU, obviously, so the scores were considerably lower than the laptops we have tested with a more robust graphics on board. Still, for a light weight ultrabook, the X1 Yoga's performance was quite good across the board in this test, relatively speaking.
