Re: Yoga 730 CPU clock speed stuck at around 0.800 GHz when gaming, help!

2018-07-31, 7:14 AM

Wow, odds of receiving two bum units in a row would be pretty small if the issue wasn't widespread.

 

Did a little more research last night and it seems like every laptop with a U series Intel chip and dGPU combo has this issue, which rules out almost all the current high-powered 2in1 devices.

 

Oh well, guess I'll do a bit more digging on the 720 and maybe get that instead.

Re: Yoga 730 CPU clock speed stuck at around 0.800 GHz when gaming, help!

I had a failed Fingerprint scanner on my Yoga 720.  When I got this Yoga 730 I was excited for it to actually work.  

 

Now for the throttling issue.  I have installed the Intel Extreme Tuning Utiity and used that application to monitor my system.  Do the same and see if you experience what I am experiencing.  I'm finding that during gaming my system Power Limit Throttles.  

 

I have a thread on the Intel forum here  ----> https://communities.intel.com/message/558105#558105

 

Please visit that forum and add your experience.  Hopefully this will help get the recognition this issue deserves.

Has anyone tried with the i5 instead of i7?   Does it run at normal clock with nvidia GPU?

i5 has the same issue.  I had the 14 inch Ideapad 720s and while there was some normal throttling between with the i5 8th gen U and  MX150, it was nowhere near as bad and you could even get some better perfromance using throttlestop.

Thanks for confirming.  Shame they really screwed up this machine.  I guess only the Surface Pro 2 figured out how to do this correctly with nvidia and 8th gen in slim laptop?? Or is that really screwed up to since it doesnt have fans.

 

Is gen 8 doomed in slim laptops?

I don't get it.

Why woudl you put a GTX 1050 in a laptop, that will use it in 20% after 1 minute of gaming?

This is what's happening to me. CPU goes down to 0.6GHz and GPU to about 20%. IT would be better to have a less powerfull CPU that will not overheat as much and will keep the GPU at 100%.

 

I will try to return this laptop since it does not deliver what was expected.

Would this be the driver that could be updated to solve this issue?

 

Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit)

It might not be a driver that needs to be updated.  Most third party power managment applications change settings in the bios for certain apps like games and video.  Whatever is causing our CPU's to power limit throttle is likely something that could be fixed with a BIOS update.  At least that's what my limited research appears to be saying.

Hey guys.

 

I was being able to fix the issue by going to Settings ->  System -> Power and sleep mode -> Additional power parameters (this can be a bit different for you because I translated it from my native language) and adding new power scheme based on Performance template.

 

Now everything is butter smooth but laptop heats more during heavy load.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Ol8vil ! I'm having the same issue, did you just changed the power plan ? You did nothing else ? 

Not even used throttlestop or Intel xtu ? 

And with that configuration you managed for example to play a game ? 

Thanks you in advance
