Lenovo Legion Y520 poor performance + battery

2018-04-24, 14:46 PM

Hello. Half a year ago I bought this Lenovo Legion Y520 notebook: GTX 1050 4gb card i5-7300HQ CPU 2,5ghz 8gb DDR4 (1600hz) I know it isn´t a beast in any way but I expected much better performance. For instance Metro 2033: resolution 1024x768, details on low... and I have these lags or stutters as you can see in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMK5Sn5AY3g). Even though I have more than 100 fps, you can see lags there throughout the whole video, especially in 0:44 and 0:54. It´s interesting that I have like 160fps and I have lags. And when I set it on fullscreen and high details I have instable 60fps with regular drops to 45fps. It is not a new or demanding game so I don´t understand. Also GTA 5 I meet even recommended requirements and on fullhd I have relatively decent 60fps to drops to 50fps but it´s not pleasant. I tried typical solutions like update drivers, check GPU performance. I also tried something according to this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dr1ubiz83w) and it helped with CSGO fps but not anywhere else in my opinion. I´m not very satisfied with this notebook. Even the battery endures like 1,5 hours on max power save mod. I think I will return it if it won´t get better with both battery and performance. Thank you for your advice.

Do you plugged in your laptop? If not, the GPU needs more power, so if you playing a game with battery, no doubt it will be lag and the battery will drain fast.

Of course it´s plugged in. But the strange thing is that I have 160fps with drops to like 110 and still it lags as you can see in the video.

Are you using a SSD? Also did you change your power options in windows to high performance? Though that will wreck your battery life more it will at least improve performance.
