And what makes streaming so awesome on the Lenovo Legion Y720 Tower? Let us count the ways.

It’s All About The Details

High-spec visuals are all the rage, and for good reason. We know how cool it is to be able to fully showcase what you’re seeing to the world almost exactly as you experience it. Thanks to its optional AMD Ryzen™ 7 1800X processor (3.00GHz 16MB) and optional AMD Radeon™ RX570 4GB GDDR5 graphics card, you’ll be able to game with confidence knowing your Lenovo Legion Y720 Tower is handling all the processing work in the background to encode your footage directly to the world. The tower’s high refresh rates give you smooth framerates, and with full 1080p/60fps capabilities, you’ll be running alongside the top dogs with professional-grade quality streams and videos.

All the Bells and Whistles

On nearly every front, PC gaming offers a wide variety of customization options from choosing your own parts, to software and design. Streaming content from a PC also carries the same weight of freedom. After setting up your stream with full HD capture and framerates, add your own touch to the overall look and feel of your broadcast with cool new overlays, facecams, bots, capture cards and notifications. And when you’re running a full production as a streamer, it’s important to be able to customize through unique layouts and mechanics on your system. Professional-grade broadcasts begin with your PC’s ability to run all the necessary software that helps you convey your own capabilities as a content creator.

Two Birds, One Stone

The details of your stream are important, and being able to broadcast in full HD with high framerates is invaluable to a serious streamer. If you don’t have powerful hardware, you have to make decisions around the quality of your stream and game. Should you play your game at the ‘medium’ settings and stream in full HD at 60fps? Or you should you opt for the ‘ultra’ setting and stream at 720p 30fps?

We don’t think you should have to make that choice. The Lenovo Legion Y720 Tower with optional AMD Ryzen 7 1800X processor (3.00GHz 16MB) and optional AMD Radeon RX570 4GB GDDR5 graphics card gives you a powerful enough system to limit those compromises and keep the quality of your streams at the best possible settings. Play your game and manage your broadcast with complete faith in your system, while entertaining the world and yourself.
