Lenovo's IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is a compact gaming PC and performs like one.

The GTX 1070 Founders Edition and i7-6700 work well together, and the PC can handle pretty much any task. 4K gaming is decent; the unit can achieve close if not above 60FPS even at higher resolutions. While the GTX 1070 FE and i7-6700 aren't as fast as some of the other configurations in the charts, the power and heat reductions allow their use in a smaller PC.

The IdeaCentre Y710 Cube's SSD isn't the fastest, but responsiveness in Windows isn't affected. The HDD is actually quite fast compared to some of the others. While there is some debate over whether or not Killer's wired solutions are faster than Intel's, their wireless solution is one of the fastest on the market.
