BIOS

 

Lenovo's BIOS looks retro but is actually a UEFI. You even have mouse control. Fully built systems rarely require users to enter the UEFI to make changes, and that is the case with the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube. The system is already configured correctly, the only reason you might have to enter the UEFI is if you make some hardware upgrade and need to change the boot order.

Lenovo used both Killer wired and wireless network adapters. Killer's Network Manager allows you to team the two connections to boost overall speed. The technology is called Killer Doubleshot Pro.

Lenovo's Nerve Center software allows you to control different aspects of the desktop including lighting and network priority. There is also a discovery mode that allows you to "discover" different aspects of the PC.

Audio enhancer lets you enable surround sound. LED control is a nice touch, but the unit only has red LEDs.

Network priority lets you set which programs are given higher priority over others in regards to bandwidth.
