    Can Someone please confirm whether or not Turbo boost works simultaneously for all cores?
    To test this, one can simply turn on high performance mode. Open HWINFO64 and monitor the core frequencies .then put some load on the laptop and check if it is maintaining the turbo clock of 3.2ghz ?

    someone kindly carry out this test and post some screenshots?

    Hi all!!!
    i finally purchased my y510 from hyderabad for 72k.The laptop came wid a glossy screen rather than having a matte finish.....
    Dont understand if lenovo is selling different variants wid the same part number: 59390016

    Anyways the laptop is a perfect gaming beast for the price

    Thank u all for ur clarifications and suggestions....else i would hav ended up buying Samsung NP550P5C-S05IN

    Hi akash from what i have read on few reviews of Y510p it supports turbo boost for 1 core and clocks down to 2.4 ghz when more than one cores are involved. Also this is similar to how turbo boost technology of intel works , never are 4 cores simultaneously in turbo state, for some processors the max turbo state is for one core, mid state for 2 and base state for 4 like this

    For Core i7-2920XM.
    The normal operating frequency is 2.5 GHz. Turbo is indicated as: 7/7/9/10 in which the first number is the multiple of 100 MHz supported when four cores are active, the second number is the multiple for three cores, the third number is for two cores, and the fourth number is for one active core.

    Subject to limits on temperature, current and power consumption, the processor can increase its clock speed (from a base frequency of 2.5 GHz)in steps of 100 MHz to:
    # of cores active # of Turbo Steps Max frequency Calculation
    3 or 4 7 3.20 GHz 2500 + (7 100) = 2500 + 700 = 3200
    2 9 3.40 GHz 2500 + (9 100) = 2500 + 900 = 3400
    1 10 3.50 GHz 2500 + (10 100) = 2500 + 1000 = 3500

    yes. i know that... what i wanted to know is if turbo boost works for for all 4 cores of the processor like it should at full load in the Y510p ie: 3.2Ghz which is the specified max turbo when all four cores are working simultaneously. If yes, then it would prove the notebook check review wrong.

    PS : my friend wants this info asap :/

    I live in Delhi and plan to buy it from a store locally. So what price should I expect and do they give and additional things like bags etc. Also point to any good store or else I think I will visit NP.

    Can I use SLI with this as I will be using this for gaming and I want it to last. With 755 I dont think SLI will be possible. Please confirm. Also whats the touchpad type? Everyone seems to have a different one.

    Whats the ram configuration 2x4 or is one slot empty?

    Please suggest as I cannot decide if I should wait till October end for all Haswell products to come out or go ahead?

    This would require hell lots of load to move up with four turbo boost. I was playing assassin's creed 3 and only one core was active when I was on battery but I think there were certainly more than 1 core active when I plugged it in.

    In case you get Elan touchpad with your device and if you are not satisfied with its performance than you can get it replaced to Synaptics by an authorized Lenovo service centre without any issue, infact you should try elan touchpad yourself on Y500/Y510P for your satisfaction.

    You should get it from Digitus Electronics at Nehru Place they got very good pricing on this, I myself got one from there and at current rate they may give you at 71500 with a Lenovo bag and some accessories as a gift.

    Hey udit thanks for the reply. I think i will go ahead with the model i am getting. The reason i was skeptic is because i had a bad experience with previous laptop and didn't want to end up visiting service center as soon as i purchase new laptop.

    yeah but according to core i7 4700mq reviews when all cores are active then still some turbo is supposed to be there But review of y510p states that there is no turbo boost thus making the processer even worse than y500's 3632qm low watt tdp processer thus making 4th generation a no good laptop

    You should be happy...
    You can easily extend your ram by getting another 8 GB.
    In my case , I have 2 x4 and I don't have another laptop to put the two 4GB,if I want to upgrade

    Actually y500 came with elan and many people reported issues with it. Later it was replaced with synaptics. Lenovo people told me that those issues have been long fixed and as such you wont face any problems with either of them.

    Both these models have excellent built quality so you can get any one of them but avoid other brands specially the ones which have plastic legs.
