Re:Legion 15 Pro 6 (AMD 5800H, RTX 3070) - XMP support coming soon?

2021-10-05, 9:14 AM

Oh man, can we please get fan control of some kind? Or options like disabling some of the RGB profiles, I would like to be able to switch the keyboard lighting on or off with one hit and not hit it 3 times to switch through every single profile and then off. Some auto-timeout for the backlight would be perfect for battery life.

 

Can I up the conservation mode limit to 80%? Have both rapid charge and conservation mode enabled at the same time??

 

I have the legion 5 15ACH6H and it's missing so many features compared to my previous laptops. It's a good laptop but they NEED to add some features to better control the device.

I have the LEGION 5 PRO 3070 version and having performance problems in CPU bound scenarios already XMP support would be greatly reduce this on especially AMD CPUs. Waiting for the updates on this question.

This is the only point holding me back from purchasing this laptop!

 

I repeat, if the Legion 5 Pro allowed XMP profiles or memory tuning I would buy this laptop immediately. In fact, I would consider switching my entire workforce over to this laptop.

 

As a current owner of the previous generation Legion 5 with Ryzen 4800H and GTX1660Ti I can relate to the OP. I also upgraded my RAM only to find that the memory timings were forced to JEDEC settings. I was surprised and dismayed by this discovery.

 

I can understand the reason Lenovo would restrict the memory timings, or more importantly the voltage. Almost every RAM kit requires the voltage be bumped up from 1.2V to 1.35V to achieve the XMP timings. This equates to more heat and more power consumption, which also reduces the time you can run on battery. These considerations make the decision easy for a normal computer, but this is no normal computer. This is a Legion 5 Pro. This laptop has one of the best cooling solutions around and comes with a 300W power adapter! I don't think we need to worry about the little bit of extra heat from upgraded memory or a slight reduction in battery life.

 

This is billed as a gaming laptop, but really this machine hits the sweet spot for a lot of power users. Some of us need more RAM than Lenovo offers in even the top configuration. This means upgrading to aftermarket memory, but with the current BIOS we are forced to accept degraded performance.

 

Lenovo please fix this problem!

I would also like to chime in and ask Lenovo to enable XMP as well as fan control on the Legion 5 Pro. I recently purchased the laptop and I'm happy with it for the most part. But considering that this is marketed as one of Lenovo's higher-end gaming laptops, it's quite an oversight to not have these two available. At least make it optional in the BIOS for those who really needs the feature. The laptop can handle it and its cooling system is renowned for being one of the best out there. I really see no reason for this not to be enabled.

I've been reading about so many laptops the past month when I decided that I really need to replace the old Asus that I've been using for the last 5+ years. It wasn't really going to be difficult choice if only the L5P had these two activated. I'm sure there are other people out there who are on the same boat and they'd easily see that this laptop is worth every cent, but because almost every review out there mentions these as caveats, it's possible that they'd move on to another brand. It's very egregious that we're still having to beg for this to this day.

Please, Lenovo. Listen to your customers. It's a win-win situation!

I have a lenovo legion 5, and I couldn't belive it. Why is there no xmp profile ? Why is there no legacy boot option ? I've never seen such an unsuitable bios for gaming. It bridles the whole pc which could be an excellent machine.

Agreed. Have the rtx3070 5i and honestly it's a perfect laptop were it not for the lack of xmp support and fan control. Please add this in a bios update, I have a 3200mhz cl16 1.2v kit that is running at garbage speed/timings for no reason

I too favor this, but also give us a better bios with more features! I find it very lackluster to be honest. I was in love with my legion but ever since needing some basic bios features, I've been disappointed with lenovo :/
