Re: Y500 Lagging on battery

2013-05-31, 3:01 AM
I have the same problem. I just got a new y500 with the dual 750m. I understand that the battery can't fully power a card, but i also know my old laptop with a gt540m ran the same on and off the charger, so I know a battery can give better performance then we are getting.

I'm here to register my annoyance in this issue to. I wouldn't mind so much but the battery life is so crap on the Y500 anyway I don't even know why they bothered to clock the card down.

 

They really should be giving the consumer the choice of how they configure the GPU.

 

Either re-enable the HD4000 with a BIOS update (if possible) or give us an update to specify GPU clock speed when on battery.

Sad to say, but this is likely how it is designed. And we might just need to accept it. Seriously, the second iteration has been relased but there is still nothing from lenovo. In fact they were only entertaining the problem and giving the usual "we will look into it" spiel when users first found the problem, after sometime they just gave up and remained silent. I guess the few of us here are not as important as the other 90% who bought the machine and remained silent.

Lenovo, we users understand that throttling will happen when on battery, but not to the point where it cripples game play. I won't even rant about missing optimus and widi, a thread about that already exists.

Anyway, sold my y500 and switched to a clevo with 7970m. Between y500 problems and the 7970m enduro issues (mostly fixed now, more games running faster than 680m now), i'll pick the clevo with 7970m hands down.

**bleep** me, you people are terribly slow.

 

It  is a hardware limitation that you cannot power a high-class GPU with a piddly  little battery. If  it was running at full speed the battery would likely degrade *very*  quickly.

 

 

The HD4000 is  disabled  in the circuitry. Poor  decision it may have been,  but it is now resolved in the Y510p. No  amount of BIOS  tweaks will fix it for the Y500  though.

 

 If  you want a decent gaming experience on a battery, buy a bliody 3DS or Vita.

Otherwise suck it up and find a place to plug in and deal with it.

 

Thanks

releasing the Y510p with a possibility to enable Optimus just makes me regret buying the y500 even more
