Just last week, Lenovo officially launched the IdeaPad Y710 Cube compact gaming desktop in Malaysia. Naturally, the Y710 is packed with a Pascal-based graphics card, and it appears Lenovo will be introducing a gaming laptop with an Nvidia GTX 10 series GPU on our shores soon too.
In our usual search through SIRIM’s database, we noticed that Lenovo registered a particularly interesting laptop with the certification body: the IdeaPad Y910. Announced back in August this year, the Y910 is a 17-inch gaming laptop with plenty of power under its hood.
In terms of specification, the IdeaPad Y910 can be configured with up to an Intel Core i7-6820HK processor, a single Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, up to a whopping 64GB of DDR4 RAM, as well as a 1TB HDD; the Y710 can also be equipped with two 512 SSDs in Raid 0 configuration.
Needless to say, these are very respectable specifications, but oddly enough, the Y910 only comes with a 17.3-inch 1080p anti-glare IPS display instead of a 4K panel. Considering the fact that this gaming laptop can be configured with a powerful GTX 1080 GPU, it should have no problem running games at 4K resolution, although battery life would be another issue.
Regardless, now that the Lenovo IdeaPad Y910 gaming laptop has been registered with SIRIM, there’s a good chance the gaming machine will be launched in Malaysia in the near future.
