Lenovo P15s - WORST Laptop ever? Feels like working on a 20 year old machine- NEED HELP!

2021-06-05, 19:03 PM

Hey guys,

 

I just registered here. My old t460s has 1000% more power than my new Lenovo P15s.

The computer is more than laggy. I can show you a video when I record on OBS. My old T460s seems way better.

Please see my issue here: https://we.tl/t-5qZiv1WKzR

When I check the GPU under the Task manager, I get peaks to 100%. Then everything gets laggy. The Quadro graphic card doesn’t get bothered at all. I don’t get what is wrong with that laptop. Does anyone have some solution?

Power management and thermal management is utterly terrible. Throttles to 400mhz all the time. Unusable. It feels like I'm using a 20-year-old machine.

For a 2000 USD machine I’m more than upset.

When I run OBS the system dies, I need OBS for my work.
Also, sometimes I have plenty of lags while just browsing... What can I do about that issues?


 

I also see that there are no Reviews for the P15s, I have a feeling that this Laptop is just garbage.

 

Mod edit:  Thread moved to proper Board.

Hi hellmachine

 

Would you have the same Windows 10 build version on both?

 

You can include the machine model type ? MTM from your sticker so we can check the specifications of the machines better.

Hello hellmachine,

 


Welcome to Lenovo Community

 

 

Are the BIOS and drivers up to date thru the support site?
Have you tried running diagnostics?
I suggest that you share the machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help us detail more about your machine variant.

 


Regards,

Hey! I used "Lenovo Vantage" all BIOS and other drivers are updated. It doesn't show me any new updates. What you mean with run a diagnostic? I ran one through the lenovo website, but it did not show me any issues at all.

I got the following type model on the back: 20T4-000QGE


Specs: CPU: i7-10510U CPU @1.8 GHz - 2.30 GHzRAM: 32 GBGraphic card: Quadro GPU and a Intel HD Graphics card

In lenovo vantage you might have an option for "Intelligent cooling" under Power Smart Settings.. Can you disable it and let us know if this changes the behavior of the machine?
