Lenovo Ideapad 330-15arr not performing upto the mark

2018-12-18, 14:47 PM

I recently bought Lenovo Ideapad 330-15arr laptop. But it is not performing very well considering it is having Ryzen 5 2500u processor, while performing cinebench benchmarks first I get score of 600cb and then after performing test again the score drops to around 400cb which is huge drop in performance. I am running Windows 10 and latest drivers and bios. The laptop performs good at first but eventually after 2-3 minutes performance drops down and the laptop struggles to even run Microsoft word, and basic applications like chrome, music etc hangs.


There is one thread that I found stating same issue but did not have any solution sorted out by Lenovo https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-1xx-3xx-5xx-7xx/Ideapad-330-Ryzen-5-2500u-underperforming/m-p/4229974/highlight/false#M60567


We want solution to this problem according to the thread (see link) the problem is STAPM  limit which is set to 15W which does not allow the CPU to perform well. Also Lenovo is not replying to the thread (see link) that is why I made this thread, we need BIOS update in which STAPM limit is set to at least 25W or above.
