Yoga1 11S Haswell (4310y) - sluggish UI? Low CPU frequency?

2014-05-10, 6:05 AM
I know the Y series is supposed to be slower than the U series, but I'm feeling like this thing is abnormally slow on my GF's Yoga 11S. Task Manager shows it only performing at .58ghz while trying to load Sims 3 (I know this game has issues but it hardly seems to run at all as well - amazingly slow load times). Is Task Manager inaccurate? I think the CPU is supposed to be 1.5ghz. I've also felt the machine running a little slow in regards to UI. For instance, right clicking might have a small delay in regards to the contextual menu. Is there a setting or driver I'm missing here?
Solved! See the solution

Are you running on battery or mains? The default power plan seems to keep the system locked to a low frequency when running on battery.

Realized this right before you posted - Battery. We had her on a power plan, though, that seemed to conserve CPU usage even while charging. Things seem to be a bit better now, with her CPU over 1.5ghz as expected.
