Lenovo Yoga 8 tablet gaming review with MT8125

By Updated on

Earlier on today we gave you some reasons why you may want to consider the new Lenovo Yoga 10 tablet. Now, we switch our attention to its smaller brother, the Lenovo Yoga 8 tablet. The device features a MTK 8125 Quad-core processor and now we have an idea of just what that processor that handle in terms of gaming performance.

First things first, don’t expect the MTK 8125 chip to outperform the likes of NVIDIA’s Tegra chip as it isn’t going to happen. For a tablet that will hit the market at a price of $249 compared to the Nexus 7′s $229 price tag, you may have been expecting a more luxurious processor.

However, the Yoga 8 will perform just fine and you can see in a video that we have for you below, just how well the bite-sized tablet will be able to run some of the leading games that are available from the Android market.

One of these is first-person shooter Nova 3, a Gameloft title that has received favorable reviews since release and remains one of the graphical highlights on the Android store. The infamous Grand Theft Auto 3 was re-released for mobile not too long ago and looks fantastic on portable devices as well compared to the console original.

The same clip below gives you an idea of how well the Lenovo Yoga 8 can run the game from Rockstar, while it’s a similar story for Dead Trigger as well.

Unfortunately we don’t get a look at how well newer titles such as FIFA 14 run on the Yoga 8, but hopefully we will see further performance videos once the tablet is fully integrated into the market.

Does this tablet appeal to you, or are you a bit let down by the specs for $250? Get in touch with us below if you are thinking of buying one – those interested can head to Lenovo’s website here.
