Re: Ideapad 330 Ryzen 5 2500u underperforming

Hi guys! Is there any news about a solution to cpu underperforming?


Nothing. They barely managed to solve the BIOS "Failed to save storage" with the latest update. Then they refreshed almost all the drivers a few days later, but if you look at the versions, you can see they have absolutely no interest on support this device:

 

- current WLAN drivers are 4 releases older then the latest available on Windows Update Catalog;

- current Dolby Audio drivers do not even install properly;

- current graphics drivers are even worst then the previous and yet outdated. They are stucked on the 17.7 Crimson version, which was released in july 2017, almost three months before then the Ryzen Mobile's debut... So, they have the same bugs of the previous drivers (grey screen of death after hybernation or screen mirroring of youtube / browser videos) and the same horrible performance in game.

 

As today, i would suggest to force install these graphics drivers:

 

https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/ScopedViewInline.aspx?updateid=7077025a-e90b-4f3e-82cb-2791...

 

You will not be able to change resolution in game, but apart from that, they are way more stable and performing then the official ones.

 

We still wait for an answer from Lenovo about the STAPM limt and the lacks of (real) driver updates. Probably three pages of support requests are not yet sufficient to have their attention.

If you suspect it is underperforming, from what I have read you should try updating your BIOS. That should help

I just returned it. No use waiting for some miracle from Lenovo, they don't seem to care. Too bad, the apu had the potential to punch way about it's weight.

I have a 330S-15ARR. They released 2 updates in a week and the latest contains many security bugfixes. I guess they are beta testing on the customers... Smiley Indifferent
