RTX 2070 max-Q is about 20% faster than 1660ti (mobile) in 1080p and about 25% faster in 1440p.


This puts it slightly slower than desktop variant of RTX 2060 and 30% slower than desktop RTX 2070.

It’s HDMI 2.0.

From the description:
The Legion Triple Display Support System utilizes the HDMI 2.0, MiniDisplay, and Type-C ports, allowing the Y740 to connect up to three displays simultaneously for maximum immersion and control. Further, our rear I/O dashboard helps with cable management, keeping your battle station clean and organized for maximum focus on the game.
The Y740 features a convenient array of ports and connectors; plug in an external device or accessory or simply charge or secure your laptop with the following rear ports, seen above:
1. Mini DP
2. HDMI
3. Ethernet
4. 2 x USB 3.1 Gen 1
5. AC adapter
6. Kensington® lock slot
The Y740 also features the following side ports and connectors, seen above:
7. USB 3.1 Gen 2
8. Headphone/mic combo
9. Thunderbolt™ 3 USB Type-C

Hot deal, if i didnt buy an asus rog, i would consider this. Tho after testing i prefer rog over y740, this price is very hot. Wish it wasnt a max q CPU but if it wasnt, i suspect there might be a heat issue.

Only thing i like to point out is if you are reading reviews on this, remember reviews are y740 15.6" version has a different (better) screen than this so its something to consider. Y740 17" screen didn't look very good to me at microsoft store. The 15.6" looked quite a bit brighter/better.

When you buy direct from Lenovo they also ship from the US, but they are selling stock that is already declared Canadian that's why there is no duty.

AMD just released some smoking hot laptop chips. I'd be waiting for those laptops in Q1.

Jerrod's Tech has a nice in depth review for the 17.3 inch variants with the same spec if I recall correctly.

I believe Bob of all trades has one too.

Try searching their reviews in YouTube.

I literally paid $1337+tax for a Y540 with a RTX2060 on Black Friday. Granted I got $100ish cash back but still.
Y740 with the same configuration would have been closer to $1500.

A Y740 with even a MaxQ of a 2070 for $1400 is damn near price error territory.
This would be literally gaming grade notebook #5 I've actually purchased and returned the previous if I pull the trigger.
I'm actually tempted to buy it and sell my Y540 privately since it's out of return period.

I hate you OP.

They are going to be released next month in US. Don't expect them in canada for a while unless you want to order direct from manufacturer sites. In those cases, don't expect deals since manufacturers still want to clear out older models first.

What i'm basically saying is if you want to keep, expect to keep waiting for a while... once it hits summer when there might be sales, you will want to wait till holiday season. Once holiday season hits, then you'll start thinking CES 2021... repeat and the cycle never ends. While i do believe in waiting for a bit, when you are looking at a 9th gen intel deal thread, there is no reason to bring up upcoming tech since you are already looking at something slightly older.

Also if you are looking at a gaming laptop, AMD might not be as popular as in desktop. Fact is while 3000 series is good for gaming, intel still pulls out slightly ahead. For a gaming laptop, multi-use might not be as important for customers who might also have a desktop (like me for example, i build an AMD desktop last year during black friday and then bought a gaming laptop boxing week). In the case of laptop, there was only 1 AMD laptop i considered mostly because it came with a 2060 for much cheaper than other laptops that came with 2060 (Asus TUF series). I wasn't considering it based on the CPU nor would i really care about the CPU (as long as it doesnt bottleneck the GPU) for a gaming laptop... because 99.9% of the usage will be for gaming. Honestly if you want an all in one laptop, you might not be looking at a gaming laptop in the first place due to weight and battery life.

AMD CPU likely will play a much bigger role in productivity laptops but in terms of gaming laptops, the impact shouldn't be that big.

Any idea how long it would take?
