Lenovo Y700 freezes for 2-3 seconds while gaming

2016-03-03, 1:21 AM

I recently bought a new gaming laptop, Lenovo Y700 15'inch  (2 months ago)
Everything was fine until I noticed while gaming sharp framed drop to 2-3 FPS for 2-3 seconds and then back to normal.
I used afterburn+RivaTurner for a check up and while starting Warhammer End Times - Vermintide , it showed me on screen 40C degrees GPU1.
But after 5 minutes of gameplay the Gpu temp went up to 90 C while running on 70-60 fps!
this worries me alot, is that normal? I've had random freezes while playing Warhammer, talos principle and even LFD2! while using a coolermaster pad underneath my laptop..

I read this thread and this looks all too familiar with what I have:

i found the reason for the stuttering in one game, the resulotion default was way smaller than my laptops

anyway I started playing on extreme, went down to high and now due to this recent resaults down to medium in graphic options in Warhammer varmintide

Okay R3damancy,

I have the intel version as well, In my experience the 15isk model cannot exceed ~68-69c on the GPU. It is hard coded to throttle back if it hits 68. When it does throttle, it doesn't go crazy enough to cause what you're experiencing, (maybe a drop of ~5fps on average and EXTREMELY RARELY). The fact that your GPU can exceed 70c indicates to me that there is something very wrong with your hardware or bios. I am not on the most recent bios though so i'm not sure if the 68C thermal limit has been lifted.

This is not microstuttering.

 

Your laptop should not reach 90C within 5 minutes, thats abnormal. How are you playing the game - on a desk, on couch, in the lap?

Can  you hear the fans running?

How hot is the CPU getting?

Install GPU-z and it will tell you which GPU you have? (AMD or NVIDIA)

 

Post back the answers and lets troubleshoot this together.

Thanks.

Thank you for your help!
I never put it on my lap, I use it on a desk, I even bought a coolermaster cooling pad which didnt do much of a difference... Yes i hear the fans working (although i couldnt unlock in Afterburner the ability to mamually put the fan to 100%)

TechPowerUP GPU-Z screenshoots:
Intel: http://prntscr.com/aapzis
Nvidia: http://prntscr.com/aaq2ty
Also please not, that I've reintalled windows 10 with all the drivers alongside with bitdefender total security 2016. Haven't installed any games from steam to try it out.

Im currently doing as turture test with prime95
And monitorting with hwinfo

Holy crap, your CPU is reaching 99C, no please dont do the benchmark test anymore.

 

1) I cannot see the GPU temp, how much did it reach?

I dont have any of those games, but I would recommend that you please install and play a game to note temps.

 

You have the basics right, playing on desk, using cooling pad and monitoring temps.

Next step would be to play a game on low settings and see how much the temp rises.

2) What is your ambient temp?

 

I have the Y700-14isk with AMD card and the temps reached 70C on GPU and 77 max on CPU after 10 min of gaming (Dishonored on High settings, not that intensive game). Ambient temps are high here, about 28-30C. I just received it yesterday, so probably I can install more games and test it out and find ways to cooling the laptop.

I did a GPU stress test with furmark 

http://prntscr.com/aaswo6

 

and it's 17 C at my place... so there's no reason for overheating due to outside tempature
