Legion 7i 2021 : Does advanced optimus working ?

2021-09-12, 14:10 PM

Hi all,
I just bought a Legion 7i (core i9 + RTX 3080) and each time I start a game, I get the following error "unable to change display mode" from the Nvidia Container.
It means the system is not able to MUX from optimus mode to the nvidia RTX3080.

 

In lenovo vantage I enabled "hybrid mode" and "over drive".
In Nvidia control panel I enable "Auto select" in "Manage display mode".

 

Did I miss something ?

 

Thanks for your help.

Why have you ENABLED Hybrid Mode,  you have just purchased a laptop with an RTX 3080 in it, I'm confused why you would want to use the GPU built into the CPU.

LEGION-5-15ACH6H, 82JU002YUK, Ryzen 7 5800H + Geforce RTX 3070 16Gb Hyper X, WD Black NVMe, FHD 165Hz, BIOS 44ww.

You are right. I will use it at 95% connected to its power supply. Then the last 5% I just I to desactivate the RTX.

But as it has advanced optimus, it would have been cool if it worked.
