Lenovo Y70 Touch Gaming Notebook Review

Performance: Batman: Arkham Origins and BioShock Infinite

Although benchmarks like PCMark and 3DMark are useful for getting a general view of a system’s capabilities, it doesn’t hurt to dive into game-specific benchmarks to see how the laptop handles popular titles.

Batman: Arkham Origins
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance

The latest Batman title is a prequel that follows Batman as he develops his fighting techniques and persona as the Dark Knight. The game is built on a modified version of Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. We run the benchmark with high quality settings and FXAA.

The Lenovo Y70 outperformed the Alienware 17 in the Batman: Arkham Origins test. This is a good example of why testing multiple on systems can give you a better picture of a system’s capabilities than a single benchmark can.

BioShock Infinite
DirectX 11 Gaming Performance

Also based on Epic’s Unreal Engine 3, BioShock Infinite takes you (as former Pinkerton agent Booker DeWitt) to the mysterious, flying city of Columbia. You find yourself helping Elizabeth, who soon turns out to have unusual powers. The game is an FPS, but the storyline is as compelling as the battles and Bioshock infinite has won awards and praise for its story and art design.

Here, the Y70 pulls in just behind the Alienware 17. Given the notebook’s performance in the other benchmarks, this isn’t surprising.
