    Throttling issue FIXED! Stable clock speeds of 820-1100 MHz temps Within normal limits. Furmark gpu stress test for 90 minutes. I am not sure which driver solved the problem. AMD VGA 23.20.826.7168, Energy manager yoga mode 15.11.28.178 179, Lenovo Diagnstic v4.26.1.

Looks like the recent firmware update 1.33.0.0 has increased the STAPM limit slightly to 20W, on the 330S, so looks like Lenovo aren't totally ignoring the problem.

For me the firmware update came through Windows Update rather than Lenovo Vantage.  It appeared after updating to Windows 10 1809.

  What the heck! The thing is throttling at 3 minutes again. Did lenovo see that it worked and push out a break. God forbid the darn thing work properly.

So what is the consensus? Update or not? This is getting quite bothersome though.

 

Also, is it security related as well since its an Windows update?

Every Windows update is security related. They eat all data on name of security. When i have windows the schedule is

7 am ~500 mb update

12 pm ~50 mb update

5 pm ~100 mb update

10 pm ~ 200 mb update

 

In addition ~20 gb for new apps and ~10 gb for app updates

I am not on windows now using ubuntu. Since there had been a lot of bios updates since two months I am curious if they fixed the issue for ideapad 330-15arr.

 

One messagwe for LENOVO:

 

AT LEAST FIX THE STAPM POWER LIMIT PROBLEM WHEN THE LAPTOP IS PLUGGED IN AC. SO THAT WE CAN HAVE GOOD PERFORMANCE AT LEAST WHEN CHARGING THE LAPTOP.

Re: Ideapad 330 Ryzen 5 2500u underperforming

2019-01-29, 10:52 AM

Hello, I'm having a big problem after updating the BIOS(the 23.01.2019 update) on my 530s 14-ARR with AMD Ryzen 2500u.

After updating the BIOS everything was ok, no more green bars while watching youtube videos etc. BUT after unplugging the laptop, it keeps BSOD-ing after every restart(after every 1 min, no matter if I login to windows or I stay on the logon screen - if I'm fast enough to login and access a yt video, it crashes immediately and then BSOD).

If it stays plugged-in I have 0 problems and it performs fine.

 

I reinstalled the drivers, same issue.

I updated windows to version 1809(as it wasn't up to date when I performed the BIOS update), same issue.

I tried more versions of video drivers(Adrenalin 18.10.1; a microsoft catalog one suggested in another topic; the latest one from lenovo support), same issue.

 

What should I do? Please help!

 

Thank you!

 

EDIT: Driver Adrenalin 18.10.1 + setting AMD Graphics power setting to "optimize battery" made the laptop usable again. The new BIOS update is still questionable.
