Ideapad 530S-14IKB, MX150 underperforming

I bought this Notebook a few days ago, and so far I have been really happy with it. However, after checking the performance with the tests provided by userbenchmark.com I found that the MX150 GPU seems to be severely underperforming, namely in the 30th percentile. That means 70% of tests with the same card give better results, despite mine being brand new. So my question is, is this an expected outcome with this model, or is the card probably faulty? Or did I maybe just miss some steps to optimize its performance?

Re: Ideapad 530S-14IKB, MX150 underperforming

i 2 found the same results and i am very dissapointed in lenovo . The MX150 is not perfroming at all . 

For eg: we take one of hte most popular game nowadays called fortinte. i bought this laptop since it had an mx150 and i wass amazed by watching gameplay videos of mx150 of fortnite on youtube. It ran at 70 - 80 fps on 720 p medium settings and when i tested it on my new laptop ; it barely touched 50 and constantly revolved around 12-25 fps while plugged in and 18-28 fps while plugged out. I am very irritated with this laptop . Can lenovo do somehting about this . 

 

I ALREADY EMAILED NVIDIA AND THEY GAVE ME A GMAIL REPLY.

it did improve my fps by a mere 2 fps.

I'm getting the exact same issue. Seems the GPU is hitting a 63 degree limit causing it to reduce utilization and clock speed. Theres been reports from individuals with hp laptops that are able to remove this limit through software.

Players are playing the same game with 70+fps and that 2 in an acer laptop(which isnt bad).... the fact that such latops have single fan while our model(14KB) has dual fans (not sure) should give even more performance than acer latops .

Found a solution for my poor performance

 

go into the bios and there will be a option(can’t remember the name) relating to performance in the configuration tab. It’s currently set to quiet and I changed it to max performance. GPU stays at 100% useage and boost to around 1200/1300. Hope this helps!

Yeah I’m not sure if I’m getting 100% of the performance but I did realise I’m on the 15inch 530s so I will most likely have more cooling capacity, I top out at 65 degrees on the mx150 and around 75 degrees on the i5 8250u in games like battlefield.

Re: Ideapad 530S-14IKB, MX150 underperforming

I am also facing this problem , fps of games suddenly drops to  arround 10fps even in basic games , i dont know why but i think something is stopping gpu to work in its full potential, its bad to see that lenovo is not providing any sollution where as even acer laptops are working much better than this lenovo 14 iKB  version. Shame
