System Configuration & General Usage
Lenovo of course loads the IdeaCentre AIO Y910 witn Windows 10 and it is pretty much ready to go out of the box. Once powered on there really is not any bloatware besides McAfee AntiVirus, which is a trial and it can be removed and replaced with a free AntiVirus if you wish. The panel itself is quite bright and definitely gives you enough room to have multiple windows open on the screen.
Running CPU-Z we can see what is under the hood of the AIO Y910. It it running an Intel Core i7-6700, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, and 16GB of DDR4 memory running at 2133 MHz. For those wondering about upgrading you can pretty easily remove the back of the unit to upgrade your memory and graphics card.
Using the AIO Y910 is just like any other PC. During normal operation it is pretty quiet, however when you get into intensive gaming the fans will kick on and are a little loud, if you have a headset on you won’t notice them though. For those wondering about power consumption check out the graph below. Idle results were taken on the Windows 10 desktop and load was taken running a loop of Heaven Benchmark for 1 hour.
Our system has a 256GB PCIe SSD as well as a 2TB 7200 RPM hard drive. We tested both drives with CrystalDiskMark, the SSD is on the left and the HDD results are on the right.
We also tested the USB 3.0 ports on the unit with our Samsung Portable SSD T3.
