Lenovo Yoga C930 Laptop Review: Dolby Vision And Atmos Deliver

Lenovo Yoga C930: ATTO Disk, Cinebench and Geekbench Benchmarks

We tested the Yoga C930 as it shipped from Lenovo to ensure we get the same out-of-box experience as our readers, with the latest Windows updates installed. Many variables can affect performance, so our comparisons should serve as a reference point. Our benchmarking kicks off with storage, CPU, and GPU tests to get an idea how the Yoga C930 performs in day-to-day tasks for these high-level subsystems.

ATTO Disk Benchmark
Peak Sequential Storage Throughput

The ATTO disk benchmark provides a glimpse into how snappy the Yoga C930 should feel in day-to-day usage. Lenovo installed a Hynix HFS256GD9MND-5510A PCIe NVME SSD. There isn’t too much info available on this SSD, except it uses 3D V4 NAND.

Read speeds surpass 2.6 GB/s, but write speeds peak just shy of 700MB/s. The performance is respectable for the price, however, and the Yoga C930 is quite responsive.

Cinebench R15
3D Rendering On The CPU And GPU

Cinebench tests the CPU and GPU independently and provides a glimpse of raw performance. The test is based on Maxon’s Cinema 4D modeling software that’s used in movie productions.

The Yoga C930 manages to stay towards the top of the pack and slightly outpaces some models equipped with the Intel Core i7-8650U, which features a 100 MHz base and 200 MHz Turbo Boost clock advantage. These kinds of performance advantages / disadvantages, despite was should be faster processors, are not uncommon due to the different power profiles and cooling capabilities in today's thin and light notebooks.

Geekbench 4
Single and multi-core

Geekbench 4 is a cross-platform benchmark that simulates real world processing workloads in image processing and particle physics scenarios. We tested the Lenovo Yoga C930 in Geekbench 4’s single and multi-core test workloads.

Lenovo’s CPU advantage continues in Geekbench 4, where it is the fastest ultrabook we’ve tested. This could be attributed to the Yoga C930’s cooling system, which enables it to maintain higher clock speeds overall for the duration of the benchmark.
