Over the years, many experts have argued that desktop PCs are on a massive decline, and its death is imminent. Fast forward to today, PC gaming is still considered a core business market, and for Lenovo, an opportunity to leverage on current technology to bring gaming to the masses. With the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube, the company is looking to bring desktop gaming and even virtual reality to everyone in a compact form factor.
“Driven by the emergence of video game streaming, virtual reality and augmented reality as a means of enhancing and expanding interactive entertainment, PC gaming is still relevant today. Despite fierce competition, we still see a strong opportunity to be part of the gaming sector as part of our continued commitment to users”. Said Khoo Hung Chuan, Country General Manager of Malaysia and Singapore, Central Asia Pacific.
Powered by Intel’s 6th generation Core i7 processor, the Y710 Cube also comes equipped with 8GBs of DDR4 RAM, a 2TB HDD, as well as an NVIDIA GTX 1070 discrete graphics card, for the best gaming experience, be it for traditional PC gaming, or even with a pair of virtual reality headset.
The IdeaCentre Y710 Cube is confidently capable of handling gaming at 4K resolution, high-quality streaming and many other complex computing tasks in real time, and even has space for multitasking between tasks.
It is also ideal for gamers who are constantly on the move, as the Y710 comes with a handlebar at the top of the case, which allows gamers to easily transport the machine around for LAN parties and such.
At the moment, there is only one configuration of the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube available in the market today, which is priced at RM6,099. According to Lenovo executives, there will be an i5 model with an NVIDIA GTX1050Ti and a 256GB SSD that will be made available in Q1 2017.
