ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 2 Benchmarks: Graphics - 3DMark
Futuremark’s well-known 3DMark benchmark suite features tests aimed at 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-targeted for thin and light laptops. Sky Diver is a bit more strenuous, but still well within the limits of our test group.
FutureMark 3DMark Benchmarks
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 2 machine puts up strong scores again, but oddly enough falls in behind the ThinkPad X1 Carbon despite the Carbon's slightly lower-end (though not in terms of its IGP) Core i5 Kaby Lake chip. This wasn't a huge variance, but consistent in both tests. At play here could be a different Intel Graphics driver setup, or perhaps small variances in cooling solutions, or perhaps even a combination of both. Regardless, in terms of integrated Intel graphics performance, the new ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 2 puts up solid scores.
