So, If you are planning to use linux then opensource drivers are better than proprietary drivers (getting more fps in games, CS GO run at 100+ fps but with better drivers it may give 150+ fps, other games -- not available on Linux -- do not use oibaf drivers they degrade performance in my 330-15arr).

...............................................

 

Thanks for the usefull review!

 You do not recommend oibaf's drivers.
My questions are two:
1. Which drivers do you prefer? and
2. If you know a guide to use, to uninstall the old drivers and install new ones (ubuntu 18.10).

AMD-VI (virtualization) will throw errors on boot but works good.


Mic works like a charm. It just detects as stereo mic, so you should lower to zero one channel on "advanced" dropdown in pavucontrol.

  This is getting down right ridiculous. I have been following this thread for a few weeks now and I thank you all for the solutions to the problem that Lenovo should be addressing. I will be returning my Ryzen 5 330s within the next week. Which is unfortunate. At this price point it looked promising on paper. Shame on you Lenovo for ignoring such a simple fix. What a shameful flagship release for what could have been a solid Ryzen mobile. 

 

 

No thanks,

Former customer

Idk I've already fixed all issues that I faced with this laptop. Now it's performace just like it sould be. Cinebench score are around 700. Gpu works on its 1100Mhz in games, BF1 multiplayer 64 players runs around 45-50 fps easily. And laptop never reaches 80c. So I'm really happy with it rigt now.

I used both daily and stable ppa, in stable some windows apps (that i use in wine) crashes everytime on exit and whole system hangs so switched to daily driver which fixed the issue, the daily ppa worked very well for weeks but recent drivers performance in vulkan (dota 2 lagging a lot, vkmark crashes but render scenes and there is screen tearing) all other and finally switched to stock drivers no issues. I tried other ppa but they are not that good.Wich one ppa do you use? stable or daily?

Thanks, it fixed the mic problem.

i was also able to solve the problem in ubuntu by using acpi tables override using cpio archive method. Everything works good cinebench score is about 650cb under wine and no drop in cpu clocks and gta V ran at  avg 45-60 fps under wine using dxvk (latest version not working for me) and temp does reaches 75°C but not above that and no bottleneck anymore. Laptop is working as it should upgraded ram to 12GB and now it is 720p beast.

How to make GPU hit 1100 MHz . Please tell me the procedure. I currently use 25 watts tdp.  I used someone else dsdt file. I got no idea how to create 30 watts dsdt file. How to increase the performance even more . Currently my GPU clock around 600 to 700mhz . Any help would be much appreciated

Yeah, about that.

Did you loose any performance in any non-memory-size dependent application?

I thought that different sized (cz we have soldered 4g onboard) memory modules will fail at dual-cannel mode.

 

And im using daily oibaf's PPA. (stable is actualy called padoka's)

8g+4g is supposed to lose performance but in practice there is no performance loss. Now it just won't run out of ram while playing games. RAM was installed by lenovo service centre itself so no worries at all.

How did you fixed it? Did Lenovo fixed this in a BIOS update? I'm planning to buy this soon. Need to know if the throttling is fixed or not.
