The Lenovo Yoga 920 scored well in the PCMark 8 tests we ran. It had the second highest performance in the Accelerated Home test and the fifth best under the Work Accelerated test.

Cinebench tests CPU and GPU performance. The CPU test runs up to 256 threads in order to complete a scene with 300,000 polygons, with 2,000 reflections, shadows, lighting and anti-aliasing. The GPU test renders almost a million polygons and includes effects like transparency, bump and environment mapping.

The Intel Kaby Lake R processor inside the Lenovo Yoga 920 clearly showed its muscle. The system scored the fastest CPU performance under Cinebench R15 and the second fastest in Cinebench R11.5. The GPU performance was good too, relative to the other systems with integrated graphics processors.
