The Lenovo Legion Y740 with RTX 2080 Max-Q Reviewed + Anthem Gameplay

The Lenovo Legion Y740 with RTX 2080 Max-Q Reviewed + Anthem Gameplay

I finished my video review. I'm sorry if it is bad, I learned how to do all this as I went. For a first review I think it is okay!


Build quality and size:

First things to do with this laptop:

On Benchmarking and thermals:

Performance in real world tasks:

Value and if you should buy this laptop:


Fire Strike Scores:

Bag fit, Bios, Intel XTU Stress Test, Light Bleed

Bob Of All Trades ThrottleStop/i7-8750h Video:

My very aggressive turbo lowering settings:

Please note, in the review I failed to mention the enormous bezels around the laptop screen. These are about .5" thick on the sides and top. This is unfortunate since the 15" counterpart has slim bezels and the camera on the lower bezel by the Lenovo logo. Unfortunately, the 15" doesn't have a 2080 Max-Q variant. I myself may go with a 15" 2060 variant after the (somewhat) disappointing performance of the 2080 Max-Q.

Overall, the laptop does great with thermals after a tiny bit of tweaking and has sound build quality. The 2080 Max-Q is overall a bit disappointing. I give a high recommendation to the 2060 version of the 15" variant as it is very cheap for its performance and build quality, but can't speak directly to its quality.
