Introduction

Lenovo and other vendors have recently launched a lot of computers aimed at the gaming community. The reason for this shift is the shrinking mainstream market for desktop PCs and the growth of the gaming PC segment.

Like many other vendors, Lenovo is also focused on compact gaming PCs, and their solution is the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube. The Y710 Cube combines a unique chassis design with powerful hardware, and the result is a unique looking PC powerhouse.

Without further hesitation, let's see what the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube has to offer.

Specifications

Our configuration uses a i7-6700 4-core/8-thread CPU, 16GB of DDR4, a GTX 1070 8GB, a 1TB HDD, and a 128GB SSD. One of the interesting additions is the Wireless AC card from Killer networks; it's a very high-performance WIFI card. The package also comes with a keyboard and mouse. The dimensions of the PC are: (L x W x H) 15.48" x 9.93" x 12.38" and it weighs 16.3 pounds. So the PC is shorter than a normal ATX tower, but it still weighs a decent amount because of the high-end hardware.

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube's CPU has a 3.4GHz case with a 3.8GHz Turbo Boost. The memory runs at default 2133MHz and is made by Samsung. The NVIDIA GTX 1070 8GB is the vanilla card from NVIDIA. Lenovo has used a Killer Networks e2400 controller for the wired LAN and a Killer Wireless AC 1535 card for the WIFI. Using both Killer wireless and wired LAN controllers allows users to take advantage of Killer's Double Shot Pro.

Pricing

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube starts at $929.99, and goes up to $1999.99. Our configuration is $1699.99.
