Hi guys, im running out of ideas, recently i acquired a lenovo y520 and the problem is that the OS (windows 10 home) detects the gtx 1060 but refuses to use it beyond 10%...
the specs are these:
8gb ram ddr4 @2133mhz
Nvidia gtx 1060 max-q 3gb
Nvidia Drivers: 417.22
BIOS version: 5xcn10ww
how do i know this?:
i runned afterburner and the gpu maintains 40C and 600mhz running any game, and the performance is awful,
for example, i cant even get 30fps playing monster hunter on lowest settings.
what have i tried?:
i configured nvidia panel to use the gpu on global settings, also program settings individually.
Solved! Go to Solution.

It looks like your laptop is not using the 1060 at all as in it's using the integrated GPU instead. The guide below is for Y530, but the steps are the same for Y520. Please give it a try and get back to us if that helped.
- The activity icon from Nvidia control panel will tell you whether the GPU is used or not
- Make sure the power settings are set to Hight Performance.
