Lenovo y530 gtx1060 performance issues

Hello,

 

I recently got a new Lenovo Legion Y530 144Hz, with i7 8750h processor, GTX 1060 6GB video card, 512GB SSD and 8GB of RAM.

 

I'm writing here after 5 days of:

-changing settings (selecting the prefered video card that the system should use, program dedicated video card that should be used, max the fan power)

-playing games on both the factory version of BIOS and the latest update from lenovo's site

-undervolting

-overclocking

-changing thermal pastes

-CHANGING THE ENTIRE LAPTOP AT MY RETAILER

 

The main issue is that i have medium, not to say low performance in games, comapring myself with other laptops with the exactly configuration that i have at the moment.  Games of reference are GS GO (90-105fps); League of Legends(90-140 fps); Civilization VI(100 fps).  Any settings i'm trying to play on i get the EXACT same fps; the same on very low, the same on ultra. I can't understand why is that happening. Maybe i'm missing something very little from the equation.

 

I also have to add that in benchmarks i get the same scores, temperatures and performances as other people with my configuration.

 

Please help me!

Thanks

Re: Lenovo y530 gtx1060 performance issues

I've never had a gaming laptop, so I don't really have much to help you with.

 

However, could this be related to your FPS issue?

It was designed to reduce noise/heat emissions, though it comes at the cost of limiting FPS.

Thanks for the answer but that feature is disabled already so it's not causing the issueSmiley Sad

How is the GPU usage, is that a max-Q?

Also, you heve 2x4GB sticks or RAM?   Im sure youre running single channel one stick of 8GB, get another stick of ram, 2400mhz Cas 17

I made the mistake to buy my y720 with single channel ram and performance is 10 to 15 FPS lower in some games(gta v Battlefield 1 etc)

Re: Lenovo y530 gtx1060 performance issues

The gpu is not the maxq version. Is the full one, which should deliver more juice. 

 

I have one ram of 8gb. Im missing arouns 100 fps in those games..not 10 15 Smiley Sad 

 

The thing that i cand understand is how i have the same low fps (for this setup) even on very low settings and very low resolution . I get the exact same numbers . It makes no sense...

 

Thanks for the reply

Get nvidia inspector and look at Gpu Clock  boost and estimated max it should be 1404, 1670, 1911.

daca ai mai putin e max-q Smiley Happy La **bleep** e depanero , daca nu-l desfaci si te uiti la seria de pe placa de baza....degeaba.

What gpu core frequency you have in games?

Those are exactly the frequencies the cores are working at. (Sigur nu este maxq)...sunt disperat, nu stiu ce sa ii mai fac ..

Re: Lenovo y530 gtx1060 performance issues

This may sound stupid to say, but is vsync (and anything like it) turned off in the games and NV Control Panel? Are there any power saving settings in the Intel Control Panel to be turned off?

jeremyshaw this is not stupid .. I thought the same .. but his screen is 144hz so VSync is not the problem
