New Lenovo™ Virtual Reality-ready IdeaPad™ Y910 Strikes Hard

If you’re a die-hard gamer, you probably want every type of advantage possible. From caffeinated drinks to help your quick twitch muscles to comfortable seating for multi-hour gaming sessions, every little bit helps. But having the right technology powering your gamer setup can really make a difference between defeating or being defeated.

That’s why we’d like to introduce you to our latest Y series gaming PCs. We designed them to do one thing: give gamers hardware that powers immersive game experiences. And we’re upgrading our most premium Y series gaming laptop to handle the next frontier of immersive, interactive entertainment – virtual reality (VR) gaming.

Today we launched the new IdeaPad Y910 gaming laptop at gamescom®. It supports the most advanced experiences 4K gaming1 and VR have to offer with crisp frame rates and reduced screen tearing.

At the heart of a stellar gaming rig are some critical components: a pro-level graphics card, a speedy processor, lots of RAM and a super fast hard drive. The IdeaPad Y910’s goes beyond these core components with the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 8GB graphics card, up to a 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 K series processor, up to 64GB of DDR4 memory and up to lightning fast solid-state drives (SSDs) and hybrid drives (SSHD). We think this combination will help you better focus on beating your opponents instead of whether your gaming laptop can keep up.

For that extra edge while in-game we added the one key turbo button that lets you instantly boost CPU performance. Think about being able to trigger this in the heat of the moment with just a click of a button with no reboots needed.

In gaming, keyboards must be super responsive. A slow keyboard is like running a race with a sprained ankle. In addition to its precision touchpad with anti-slip textured palm rest, the IdeaPad Y910 sports a high-accuracy mechanical keyboard with customizable macro keys, 2mm key travel, ultra-fast 1ms switch key response time, and anti-ghosting for simultaneous keystrokes. It’s even got programmable backlighting with multiple color combinations and lighting effects across seven individual lighting zones. 

Having Internet connectivity lag can glitch out your gaming experience. That’s why the IdeaPad Y910 includes up to high-speed Killer™ DoubleShot™ Pro Ethernet and Wi-Fi technology for reduced lag when gaming and streaming online. To top it off, we’ve designed the IdeaPad Y910 to handle the added heat all this extra power and speed produce during long gaming sessions. To do this we created a self-regulating fan speed, new rear exhaust design, and air intake ports on the bottom of the IdeaPad Y910’s 4.6kg brushed metal chassis with an anti-smudge rubberized coating.

And finally, your favorite gaming experiences come to life on a beautiful 17.3-inch Full HD (1920x1080) display with in-plane switching (IPS) anti-glare technology. This technology provides vivid detail and color through nearly 180 degrees of wide-angle viewing. And at the end of the day, the IdeaPad Y910 transforms into a fully functional home gaming, entertainment, and multitasking laptop. Its built-in 2x 2W JBL® speakers and 3W subwoofer with Dolby® Home Theater® for multidimensional surround sound, as well as support for up to three separate displays for cinematic viewing make it ideal for nearly any use. The IdeaPad Y910 is fully customizable with a complete suite of Lenovo Y Gaming accessories, including the Lenovo Y Gaming Mechanical Keyboard, Y Gaming Optical Mouse and Y Gaming Stereo Headset.
