Here we see the basic stats of the W540 mobile workstation. We will run this through our battery of tests to check performance, battery life, and storage. We ran a wide range of benchmarks on this unit to ensure that we saw just how this unit performs.

The CPU in the W540 is Intel's i7-4800MQ processor. This is a quad-core CPU with HyperThreading, giving us 4 cores/8 threads to work with. The CPU has a stock speed of 2.7GHz and Turbo's up to 3.7GHz. This is a lot of processing power to have in a laptop.

Memory speed comes rated at 1600MHz and CL11 timings. These are standard memory stats, so we expect that to be about equal to other systems. The W540 comes with 8GB of RAM. You can upgrade the memory to 32GB, which gives the W540 a lot of memory for hungry applications.

For graphics, the Intel's i7-4800MQ processor comes with integrated HD Graphics 4600, which is good by itself, but Lenovo has added an NVIDIA Quadro K2100M with 2GB of RAM to increase graphics performance and provide professional level graphics output.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - William Harmon

William Harmon started working with computers back in 2005 and began overclocking all kinds of different setups. My focus back then and even now is extreme cooling using Single Stage Phase units, Cascades and Liquid Nitrogen. During this time I was also in several competitions that GIGABYTE had sponsored, GOOC 2009 and 2010. Using technics in overclocking and cooling that I have learned over the years I started building high speed workstations and servers for clients who needed higher performing systems. Many of these systems are used in high frequency trader companies and work stations used in all kinds of professions. At TweakTown, I provide and develop accurate test and benchmark methods for servers and other equipment to help make purchasing decisions easier.
