Y530: is it possible to run at full performance on battery?

2018-12-12, 18:16 PM

I've read multiple articles and forum posts with conflicting information about this.Some say you can run at full performance, some say you can't. Is it possible to fully utilize the CPU and GPU while on battery power? When plugged in the laptop runs great, however I see the perfomance drop right when I unplug the AC adapter. I have tried all utilities available in Windows. Windows power options, NVIDIA control panel, Lenovo Vantage, none of these change anything. I have made a post on here about advanced power settings in the BIOS, the most likely solution to turn off the throttling, but it is not possible to access. If it matters, I have the Y530-ICH with the i5-8300H and the 1050Ti.

AFAIK there's no laptop like that.
If the battery in Y530 could delivery that kind of current it would drain to 0 in less than 30 minutes.

No way. This will exceed the power output of the battery and damage the battery
