Lenovo™ Gives Virtual Reality Wings to its Newest Gaming Desktop Designs

Today at gamescom®, Lenovo (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) showed off two new ways for performance PC players to game and experience virtual reality (VR) nearly anywhere by announcing the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube and IdeaCentre AIO Y910 desktop PCs. While many gamers dedicate rooms for their battle stations, as many as 47 percent1 are playing in settings beyond the confines of a desk. That’s why we created the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube and IdeaCentre AIO Y910 in minimalist form factors – to give serious players top-of-the-line performance around the home and elsewhere. From the chair to the couch and beyond, these new gaming cube and AIO designs let gamers take their highest settings nearly anywhere.

IdeaCentre Y710 Cube goes anywhere you do
Ideal for gamers who want to stay competitive no matter where they play, the IdeaCentre Y710 Cube comes with a built-in carry handle for easy transport between gaming stations. Housed sleekly within a new, compact cube form factor weighing only 7.4 kg, it features up to NVIDIA®’s latest GeForce® GTX 1080 graphics, up to 6th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor and up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM to handle today’s most resource-intensive releases. The IdeaCentre Y710 Cube lets players confidently handle 4K gaming, VR and high-quality streaming with massive computing capabilities in real time, as well as multitask between editing a spreadsheet and streaming a movie.

The IdeaCentre Y710 Cube comes with up to lightning-fast Killer™ DoubleShot™ Pro Wi-Fi, Windows® 10 Home, up to integrated Dolby Audio™ and up to 2TB HDD (hard disk drive) or up to 256GB SSD (solid state drive) storage, letting gamers enjoy their entire gaming libraries. For those who want even more control over their gaming setups, the Cube also comes with the option of an integrated Xbox One™ Wireless receiver with one Xbox One controller. The receiver supports up to eight Xbox One controllers simultaneously for gaming sessions with friends. Additionally, the system offers players the option to bundle peripherals like the Lenovo Y Series Gaming Mechanical Keyboard and Precision Mouse.

IdeaCentre AIO Y910 offers massive power without the mass
Proving a true gaming rig doesn’t need to take up an entire room, the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 captures the power of state-of-the-art PC desktops in an all-in-one (AIO) form and fits conveniently in places where bulkier PC can’t. Built entirely within a 27-inch Quad High Definition (2560×1440) borderless display, it cuts down on the sprawling hardware and cables that clutter traditional towers – without cutting down on game performance.

Up to 44 percent1 of gamers use their gaming PCs for everything from productivity to entertainment. As both a pro-gaming, VR-ready PC and a high-end desktop for efficient productivity, the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 gives players the features they demand in a sleek AIO desktop. With up to NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX 1080 or AMD® Radeon™ RX 460 graphics, up to 6th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, and up to 2TB HDD or up to 256GB SSD, the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 is a great personal gaming powerhouse, family PC or video entertainment center.

With fewer pieces to manage, the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 is simple to set up and ready to play right out of the box. It’s adaptable, too – an easily detachable back panel allows for one-step access to the AIO’s core components, allowing for quick and easy upgrades for the increasing number of gamers – nearly 50 percent1 – who like to continually tweak their systems. Twin 5W Harman Kardon® stereo speakers produce impeccable sound, while Killer DoubleShot Pro Wi-Fi reduces in-game lag. An ultra-thin display featuring 144Hz refresh rate and 5ms response time deliver that tactical edge when every millisecond counts.

“With VR, live streaming and lifelike visuals that dwarf consoles, PC gamers have completely new ways to experience and immerse themselves in games today,” said Johnson Jia, Lenovo’s senior vice president, PC & Smart Device Business Group. “Our new IdeaCentre Y710 Cube and IdeaCentre AIO Y910 gaming desktops are the products of years of listening to the growing ways and places in which gamers choose to play, giving them even more freedom with these unique, space-saving forms.”
