Y740 Struggle at programming

2020-07-25, 10:07 AM

Hello guys. I have a Y740 15inch, if you need the specs I'll post them here.

I bought it for gaming, but now I use it mainly for work even it's a bit heavy to carry around.

I am working as a React Developer and we have a pretty big project that we're working on. The problem is that the Y740 struggles at compiling code, it takes about 12mins to compile the code first time (building cache) while my co-workers' laptops (a basic 600$ i7) compiles the project in 1-2mins, which is hilarious, taking into consideration that this Y740 is a high spec laptop...

My co-workers said it's my SSD (512 SSD M.2), but i did a benchmark and the speeds are around 2GB/s for read and write.

All drivers are updated, i never used it without power cable and power management is always on Performance, but sometimes it feels very slow.

 

What could it be? I don't know what to do anymore... I'm thinking of selling it and buy something with the same specs but more portable, maybe HP Spectre x360/ Lenovo Yoga S940 or XPS 13 2020

Y740 Struggle at programming

That's a weird issue. I would advise to download HW monitor and check the CPU temperature while compiling. It could be thermal throttling. Are the fans on full speed when compiling?

I am a volunteer in this forum and also a lenovo user. If i helped you, click on the kudos button!

What antivirus software are you running? A lot of the times the real time scanning is crippling your speed.
