Legion 7 (16ACHG6) advanced optimus

2021-06-17, 8:38 AM

Hi all,

 

I've purchased a new Lenovo Legion 7 2021 model (5900HX, RTX 3080, 32GB Ram), however I cannot find advanced optimus anywhere. I know it's a flagship computer from Lenovo but lack of advanced optimus is a disappointment. 

please can someone confirm to me that does it have advanced optimus?

 

thanks & regards

Hi dt_pro,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

 

Do you mean Advanced BIOS options ? If so, then some Legion devices do and others don't. 

 

 

This Legion has a special key combination that has to be entered to get the Advanced BIOS up.

 

"To Enter BIOS by tapping F2 while booting up - Click "more settings" - hold Fn, then slide your finger through all the alphabetical keys (Q to P, A to L, Z to M) - release Fn, then quickly press F10 - save and exit - enter BIOS again and more settings will be unlocked"

 

 

Depending on model type, yours may not have this option, as they're mostly locked for developer & repair purposes only on most Lenovo devices except for Thinkpads.

 

Regards

 

Voithos

Thanks for your reply.

I'm not asking advanced BIOS, I'm asking Nvidia Advanced Optimus.

I'd like to know as well

also if possible can you check it in the Nvidia control panel?

go to Nvidia control panel -> system information ( bottom left ) it will show you if advanced Optimus is there or no

i can confirm that Advanced Otpimus is still not supported on Legion 5 Pro and Legion 7, despite the promises of Lenovo and Nvidia engineers.
take a look at 1:27:28 - 1:30:54 Lenovo Legion 2021 Event: Absolute Gaming Performance (Livestream) - YouTube
However Advanced Optimus is supported on all new Legions 5i/5i Pro/7i with Intel that cames with same GPU and same display panels!

No, cheapest Legion 5 on AMD does support Advanced Optimus!
But not Legion 7, despite that it got same iGPU and dGPU like Legion 5, and same dGPU and display panel like Legion 7i on Intel. Both that support Advanced Optimus, so it is not hardware issue
