Lenovo's Nerve Center is the go-to program for controlling Lenovo's unique hardware features, such as the RGB keyboard. You can control the lighting colors per key or in groups of keys. There are also different types of modes you can choose from, such as the wave. The TouchPad and audio area also have lights, and you can change their color.
You can also look at the Turbo Boost menu and control the CPU and GPU speeds in the software application or with the Turbo slider button. The default CPU speed is 3.6GHz while the GPU's speeds are 1.91GHz for the core and VRAM is 4.0GHz. When the system is overclocked, the CPU goes to 4.1GHz, the GPU core goes to 1.96GHz, and the VRAM goes to 4.1GHz.
You can also switch the fan into full speed mode, and you can program a keyboard shortcut to toggle this feature as well. Dolby ATMOS is included and integrated into the notebook.
Killer's Control Center allows you to control the Killer NICs, and you can also use it to scan for available wireless networks and their performance. Network Priority is available through Lenovo's product, but it basically does what Killer's software does.
You can also prevent mistaken input with Lenovo's built-in software application, and you can also enhance the sound.
Another software application, Lenovo's Magic Y Key, allows you to setup keyboard shortcuts and macros. Lenovo's Settings application allows you to control basic notebook functionality.
