Lenovo Ideapad 700 vs Lenovo Ideapad Y700

Lenovo Ideapad 700 i5-6300 /  8GB RAM  / 500GB HDD / GTX950M 


Lenovo Ideapad Y700 FX-8800P / 8GB RAM / 1TB HDD / Radeon R9 M380 4GB

Which one of those will perform better in GAMING? Does any of these two got GPU throttling problems?

Which is best suited for a gamer?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad 700 vs Lenovo Ideapad Y700

The Y700 is targetted for gamers, whereas the 700 is targetted for general use. 


With that being said, the AMD Radeon R9 M380 graphics card beats the GTX950M in almost every aspect and benchmark (PassMark score, manhattan score, clock speed, etc).... if you're looking for the best gaming performance, you'll want to focus on the graphics card and the Y700 gives you the winning edge here.  


I haven't seen any throttling problems on the forums, but I don't own these machines.  I'd suggest checking on the forums to see if there are any.
