Lenovo Legion T730, analysis and opinion

Lenovo Legion T730 Review

We have been with one of the most powerful desktop configurations for a few days and, after playing the most powerful PC games and taking a look at the new generation of consoles thanks to the hardware of this team, we tell you our opinions of the Lenovo Legion T730 in this analysis.
As gamers, tradition has taught us not to trust a pre-assembled desktop PC first time. There have been many, many years of equipment created by stores and large surfaces that cost substantially more than a PC made by pieces and that, to make matters worse, was considerably less powerful.
Yes, they were an option for those who did not want to heat their head creating a computer piece by piece, but that is something that is no longer so complicated (there are millions of tutorials on YouTube) and there is competition from laptops, which fulfill the role of gaming equipment for many users.
Lenovo notebook itself has so powerful and balanced as the Legion Y740 to analyze a few months ago, but if we want performance with fewer limitations, you have to go to a desktop.

A black aluminum monolith with lighting and side windowNamed after the Terminator, the T730 is a conventional PC on the outside. It's not like those computers from companies like MSI or HP Omen (the cubes) that are risky design pieces and very compact in some cases. Here, the Chinese company has chosen to mount a PC in a conventional box that does not attract so much attention, but that allows components to be expanded more easily.
It is a lifelong tower that does not clash on the floor or the desk and has dimensions of 18.45 cm wide, 40.8 cm deep, and 36.3 cm high. It is a large PC that goes up to 12 kg, but in the end ... it is a desktop, so it does not matter.
The jet black color is very, very elegant and the predominant materials are good quality polyethylene and aluminum. The fact that it is a traditional tabletop is not at odds with aesthetics, and here we find some very elegant details. To start with, on the front we have the Legion logo with the characteristic "Y" illuminated in white.

This front has a lower part in which we find three 'slopes' of polished and shiny plastic, as well as an area with a metal honeycomb grill that hides a series of RGB LEDs to create atmosphere.
On the left side, we have a tempered glass window that shows the components and lighting. It has the same design with hexagonal cells to keep it consistent with the front ... and it cannot be opened. It is not a window like that of other PCs, which is opened by a lever. If we want to open that side, we must remove the entire plate (removing two screws for which we do not need tools).
The configuration -almost- most powerful Lenovo in our territoryIt's time to nail the hardware, and it's really exciting. This year, due to the COVID-19 situation, physical video game events have been canceled and companies have had to find solutions.
In the end, they send the demos and beta versions in code format that expires so that we can play and make impressions, and it is on this computer that I have played Death Stranding to do its analysis - here impressions of Kojima's game on PC - already titles that will reach the new generation.

The hardware of this PC, saving the distances in the speed of the SSD, is equivalent to the new consoles, at least to Xbox Series X, the most powerful of the two, and to try titles like Dirt5 - impressions - on such a computer without the PC gets messy in a development version without optimizing ... it's a real pleasure.
We are going to talk about components, and we start with the two that attract the most attention. The processor is the Intel Core i7-9700K. It is a processor with a time behind it since it is from the end of 2018 and has 14-nanometer lithography with a TDP of 95 W.

It is very similar to what we will see in consoles in the new generation, since it has 8 cores and, attention, 8 threads. This processor was controversial because it did not double the threads, but hey, as we will see next, the performance is fantastic. It goes to 3.60 GHz base and we can go up to 4.90 GHz. It has an integrated GPU, the Intel HD 630 that comes into play in tasks where the RTX 2080 is not necessary and, thus, we save some electricity.
Speaking of the GPU, the RTX 2080 is a graphics that has been around for about two years but still offers great performance. We would have liked to see the Supermodel, but this GPU has 8GB of GDDR6 memory and the ability to use DLSS and ray-tracing technologies in compatible games.
