Lenovo Yoga Book Review: A 2-In-1 With A Trick

Graphics Testing: Cinebench And 3DMark Tests

Next, we tested the Yoga Book’s graphics capabilities. The tablet features Intel HD 400 graphics, which is lower-end than several of the Windows 10 tablets we’ve tested recently.

Cinebench R11.5
3D Rendering On The CPU And GPU

Cinebench is developed by Maxon, which is better known for its Cinema 4D software. We use both of Cinebench’s tests. The CPU test uses thousands of objects to stress the processor, while the GPU test puts your system’s graphics chip to work with a short, animated 3D scene involving a car chase. The CPU test is measured in points, while the GPU test is measured by the framerate. In both tests, higher numbers are better.

We didn’t expect the Yoga Book to provide much in the way of graphics performance. Its GPU score is comparable to older systems, but many mobile devices running Windows 10 have more powerful hardware than the Intel HD 400 and will deliver better graphics performance. CPU performance with the Atom-based processor inside is relatively low as well.

3DMark Cloud Gate
Synthetic DirectX Gaming And Graphics Testing

Futuremark’s well-known 3DMark benchmark suite features tests aimed at different types of devices. We opted for the Cloud Gate test, for which we have plenty of comparison data

The Yoga Book couldn’t deliver in Cloud Gate, either. In any case, the Halo keyboard isn’t well-suited to gaming. Although the touchpad is reasonably responsive, we wouldn’t want to rely on it to register our frantic swipes and taps during games.

3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited
Synthetic DirectX Gaming And Graphics Testing

The Yoga Book's hardware puts its performance closer to that of Android devices we've recently tested, so we fired up 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited, a cross-platform benchmark

Here, the Yoga Book's capabilities become clearer. The tablet is at home with devices that have comparable hardware.
