Lenovo Ideapad Y700-14ISK stutter while playing games

My R9 M375 in my lenovo y700 laptop seems to have a problem, while in game and under load, the GPU keeps going from 820mhz to 1005mhz, this manifests as stutter in games and annoys me quite a lot.

 

Here is a picture of gpu-z while playing a game.

And also why does the gpu usage vary that much under the same load

It is supposed to stay at a 1005 mhz at all tims under a game.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y700-14ISK stutter while playing games

Hello Thelango99

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Seems like the GPU gets too hot to maintain work properly, but honestly it`s not a very strong GPU anyway, so I would suggest you try to invest in a cooling pad or see if running the games at a lower settings can make any difference for you.

 

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.

I have tried it and I have found out that the GPU power throttles which means that it hits the 75watt limit and steps down the gpu speed to compensate for it. If only I could increase the power limit to 90watts...

 

Edit: grammar.

Plus the R9 M375 is not that weak, I can play the crew wild run at 1080p medium settings 30 fps.

This sounds similar to the issue that I am having. My drop is much lower than yours, but do you think it could be possible that there was a Driver Issues that could be causing this? I have tried re-installing the current drivers, but have not tried to roll back drivers. With mine, it was working fine for a while, then just started get FPS Drops all of the sudden.

It could be that, although I have tried rolling back to older AMD drivers, with no luck.

Other things I have seen is that instead of running at pci ekspress 3.0 it runs at pci-e 2.0 even though the gpu is capable of pci-e 3.0 which is strange.

One more thing is that why won't Lenovo let us use official intel drivers for the intergrated graphics?

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y700-14ISK stutter while playing games

Intel does outline the OEM customization of the driver, though I cannot say if Lenovo adds or removes features to the core driver.

 

From Intel, there are instructions to bypass this: https://www-ssl.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/graphics-drivers/000005469.html

 

But I do it the old-fashioned way: Extract the EXE, then manually update the driver, and install it from the /Graphics folder.
