Thanks Lenovo !

I'm having the same issue with stock new ThinkPad P53. Updated BIOS to the most current version but the issue persists.

T490s here, and so wondering if Lenovo has some kind of ETA for a firmware update to land on LVFS.

BTW, interesting that the version that this t490s came with is already newer than the one available/listed on fwupd.org and even lenovo support site ...

Hopefully some new firmware on both ?

Thanks

Re: [X1C6/T480s] low cTDP and trip temperature in Linux

after having a p52 (returned it), wanting a P1 gen 2 2019 (didn't buy because of the Tcp issues), I have finally bought a t490s that works until now ok. what I did is to make a dual boot windows 10 and ubuntu 18, then in the windows 10 did a full update with the Lenovo software (new firmaware, and some other stuff) and the in the ubuntu at the first run, the system detected a new firmware and I made the update again. After this, i runned stress tests and i looked at the syslog ... no throtle messages at all. By the first test on my old p52 the syslog was complete red and full of throtle messages. The 4 processors / 8 threads of the t490s are running at 2.8 Ghz when in stress. When on idle 600 - 800 Mhz. Do i need to test it further or do something special to trigger the bug or it is just fine?

Hi Mark, wondering if there is any update on the X1 Carbon Gen 6 getting this fix any time soon. I am glad to hear it is rolling out for other models, but very interested when 6th gen user's, like me, will have the issue solved. Thanks for your hardwork, and actually updating the community about the fix and progress being made.

Helllo bmcentee148,

 

I am hope the Update will come for your model soon, but I want to admit that some guys here waiting for the previous generation of ThinkPads  (e.g T480s) already longer a year to get this bug solved. I think that these models should be considered first to be fixed, if you not mind?

 

But in general in my option, the problem caused by propietary "Intel Dynamic Platform & Thermal Framework " which is only available to Windows users yet seems already beeing adressed to the right people here and I am sure that the bug fix for Linux and (hopefully other platforms) probably will be released promtly to all models soon.

And, another X1C6 user here interested.. This thread is now over 18 months old and lenovo's acknowledgement of the issue is more than 2 months old. I surely do endorse @bmcentee148's comment, but i also have to admit that i'm growing more and more impatiently about the issue. Any additional information would be highly appreciated. @Mark But then again, thank you sincerely for taking interest in the issue.

@johkaiser iirc, the T480s and the X1C6 are the same Generation.

Hi all - I don't have any official update that I'm allowed to share yet but I hear your frustration and I'm not ignoring this thread (or issue).

 

This issue is still being worked on and I'm pushing for commitments to getting fixes out (or at least some solid timelines we can share). There are complications with different platforms and the implementations that mean unfortunately it's not quite as simple as just rolling out the same fix everywhere.

 

Mark
