Ideapad Y580 graphic problems

Hi,

yesterday I bought a new Ideapad Y580 and started to play guild wars 2. I noticed that i have on lowest graphic settings only 40 fps. BTW on my 5 year desktop pc i got 60 fps on high settings. After that I installed 3D Mark 11 and only got 900 points, though this graphic card should have bout 2500. I got the latest nvidia driver.

 

My system:

 

windows 7 home 64 bit

intel core i7 3610QM

8GB RAM

 

would be glad about some help.

 

thx

Re: Ideapad Y580 graphic problems

Is the nvidia gpu the active gpu? and did you try to change the 3D settings from the nvidia control panel. Reply soon.

Yeah nvidia is the running card.

Tried to change the lenovo energy settings and the nvidia settings nothing changed. I downloaded GPU-Z and there i saw that the gpu-clock is at 435MHz and the memory clock is at 162 MHz which is much too less. Is that a hardware or software issue? tried also the lenovo driver same thing.

Re: Ideapad Y580 graphic problems

As you have brought the laptop yesterday, it might have a hardware defect so contact lenovo once.

Re: Ideapad Y580 graphic problems

The gpu clock and memory clock are way to low for brand new machine:'-(. The default clocks(as shown in a review) are gpu:-835mhz and memory:-1250mhz.Must be a hardware issue.
