Re: Ideapad 330 Ryzen 5 2500u underperforming

2019-01-31, 19:46 PM

I am too getting 1100MHz, I set STAPM to 25W (Although i change STAPM to anything of my choice, our laptop can handle maximum of 55W with 3.59 GHz on all cores on cinebench), however with higher STAPM there are cases of BSOD that is why i stay at 35W maximum. On linux there is no issue.


I use AMD adrenaline 19.1.1 driver everything works gud except resolution is locked.

 

On linux I use amd open source mesa 19.0.0 driver with llvm8 actually better than any drivers from lenovo (i get better benchmarks) on linux i tried 55W limit it works but after some time of heavy load there is throttling.

 

Also no matter what you do you will stuck at 800MHz on gpu unless you do dsdt fix.

You have to add

"0x0C FFFF"

something like that on dsdt and boot from clover there is vid guide on youtube

There will be discord link in description join it they will help you in STAPM and gpu frequency.

Please let us know to what temperatures your r5 2500u is heated in the cpu-z stress test? On the table, without a cooling pad.
And if someone has r5 2500 + Radeon 540, what are your temperatures in games?

It seems that Lenovo is aware of the problem issued above(post 196), as the BIOS driver updated on 15 Feb for the 530s-14ARR model is the older version!!! (8PCN45WW now online recommended for download vs 8PCN50WW the one with the issues which is installed on my machine)


If anybody has o solution for how to downgrade to the earlier version which is now recommended by them, please reply.

Thank you!

 

EDIT: 

Just read about enabling the downgrade feature in BIOS.

Downgraded, everything works fine. Hopefully it stays like this and the next BIOS update will solve the BSOD issues everyone's having on the 2500u platform.

Considering it is a mid range all round laptop, it isn't designed to be a powerhouse. But due to rare cases you may use "AMD Overdrive" software.

So, after all these complaints, Lenovo is still ignoring us. This will be my first and last Lenovo laptop. Why gimp a laptop with so much more potantial? Maybe we should take this up with AMD, this bad reputation is hurting them as well

 

Also, 2/10 for built quality on this laptop. Track pad seems loose, screen wobbles if you just look at it hard enough.

There is a new tool released called Mobile Ryzen Master. It adjusts the TDP however it will throttle after a while of gaming. Anyone got it to work on their 330s without throttling?

Hi everyone, who is having tough time because of the thermal throttling and underperformance of this laptop, i literally tried every thing in the internet for getting the better performance out of this laptop  and finally ended up in a YouTube channel "RyzenFromAshes", i was able to solve all my issues from the tutorial mentioned in these channel including thermal problems, driver issues  etc, i would suggest evryone to visit this channel and there is a tool for adjusting tdp with a tutorial, do check it out. (make sure to run this tool with administrator privileges), thank you have a good day to all,, peace ?✌️

Get this software- 
Ryzen Controller

https://gitlab.com/le.storm1er/ryzen-controller/releases

You can use it to iincrease the TDP limits thereby also increasing the maximum performance.Capture.PNG

Remember to go to the settings tab and enable the periodic application of selected settings option to 30sec or 60sec.

But remember that this is a 3rd party software and increasing tdp can cause some heating issues. Get a cooling pad or use it in moderation.

There is a lot of improvement in performance after using this fix. I mainly use this laptop for playing Battlefield 1 MP, Bf V, JC3, Witcher 3, AC-Origins and Odessey. You can get and improvement of upto 20-30 fps which is pretty good for most using a budget laptop like this.

This works for me. Cheers!
