  5. Im planning to buy a gaming laptop between this Lenovo Y540 with RTX 2060 Zephyrus GX501 with 16GB Ram and, which one do you recommend?

  6. Hello @Jarrod'sTech
    I have same laptop but with rtx 2060
    I am getting Cinebench R20 value is 2761 even after undervolting to -0.15v and fan speed is perfomance(turbo) mode.
    what could be the reason i am not crossing 3000+?
    Any solutions to increase the score(performance)?

  7. Great Video! but i have a question which one is better Lenovo Y540 or Asus ROG Strix G531GD? in cooling and performance
    Thank you!

  8. can you still use the Dolby dax equalizer on lenovo y540? ( im talking about the dolby equalizer software from the lenovo ideapad laptops)

  9. Seriously under rated reviews. In depth and top quality. I haven't found anyone else that provides such in depth reviews with consistent tests. This review made up my mind though, pulling the trigger on this laptop.

  10. Thanks for the review, I´m kind of short on budget, and I saw your reviews (Lenovo Y740 & Y540) so I don´t see a "lot" of difference between 2060 ti 90W & 1660ti 80W. Talking about cost/performance what would you recommend? Here in my country the y540 is 35% cheaper than the Y740. Thanks in advance!!

  11. You guys should check out the chinese version of the y540. The name is 联想/Lenovo y7000, it has the same basic design but it's still very different.

  12. Hi can you please review lenovo y7000 (2019)..I am thinking to consider this device but there is no review of the same by any channel. Thank you

  13. Hey. on your advice bought this laptop. all bad there are only a few complaints about the povol sound. he's ahead of the video. this only happens in the browser (in any) and Lenovo ventage has a lot of RAM. you don't know what to do with my problem?

  14. Hey, I've to choose between MSI GL63 8SD (120hz display, i7 8750H, 1660ti 6gb, 8gb ram) and Legion Y540(i5 9300h, 1660ti 6gb, 144hz display, 8gb ram), my priority is gaming and I want my laptop to be future proof. Which one should I choose?

  15. Do you know why not avaleble to switch on hybrid mode? I couldnt find to change between the performance and the quiet mode also in the Lenovo. vantage.

  16. I have a hard time understanding english but the review was still helpful.

    Nevertheless I still have one question: Do the fans get loud when I use the laptop for "normal" stuff or programming? Like using office or Java?
