Lenovo Erazer X315 (90B00002US) is a late 2015 model entry level gaming desktop (and a mid-range overall) computer for a great multimedia experience- games, videos, music, browsing the internet and more. It comes with the quad core AMD FX 770K processor (4MB cache) at 3.5 GHz speed up to 3.9GHz with Turbo Core 3.0 technology, 8 GB DDR3L SDRAM to multitask efficiently, a hybrid drive of 1 TB HDD at 7200 rpm rotating speed plus 128 GB SSD and 64-bit Windows 8.1 operating system that you can upgrade to Windows 10 free of charge as it has already come out at the end of July. Quarter 4 2014 release AMD FX 770K processor has a Passmark benchmark score of around 5100 as of today making it a high end processor offering similar overall performance with a powerful Intel i5 but in terms of gaming and multimedia- this is a budget gaming machine so the performance with the very demanding games will be a bit less than that of competitors.
Lenovo X315 doesn’t come with a monitor but the May 2015 release AMD ATI Radeon R9 360 graphics card with 2GB dedicated VRAM- memory and FHD graphics support for smooth gaming performance in the latest advanced games. You’ll experience immersive surround sound through the Dolby Advanced Audio and 7.1 channel surround sound without sound distortion, with volume maximiser and enhanced frequency response. Naturally there is no webcam but a smart and modern looking wired USB keyboard and mouse set is included in the package. Black Lenovo X315 has a beautiful futuristic cutting edge exterior design with blue lighting at the front, weighs 16.5 pounds and measures 18.02 x 15.10 x 6.97 inches.
