Re: Ideapad 330 Ryzen 5 2500u underperforming

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

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!

This works but I still throttle after about ten minutes for absolutely no reason. Curse you Lenovo I have been battling this since day one. I should have returned the thing when I had the chance. Never ever again Lenovo!
