Re: Thinkpad E580 - Radeon RX 550 performance issue

So what happens now? Are we supposed to just live with this bad design decision? Is Lenovo going to do something about it? Can we get some input on that from a representative?

No updates. Total radio silence. I guess they just don't care considering the problem is rooted in physical design of the laptops. They could remove the thermal throttling they introduced but that can cause problems with overheating.

But seems like they are trying to make the problem disappear by just ignoring it.

I've always had Lenovo laptops, but this one is definitely my last...

Have been following this thread for a long time on the sidelines..

I agree that they might as well remove the thermal throttling, because everyone who needs the power of RX550 whether it be for gaming or other GPU demanding tasks, is reverting back to BIOS 1.13 anyway.

Those who don't need the RX550 to same extent are probably not seeing as an issue and can update as they wish...

So no one loses by removing thermal throttling from where I'm sitting at least...

The only difference is that right now the 1.13 users don't have the security updates and other optimizations from the newer BIOS releases...

 

A thought is is to make two sets of BIOS:

-One: A BIOS set which is at your own risk where thermal throttling is disabled (permanently)

-Two: Another set which is the one 'Lenovo Recommends' with  throttling thermal throttling turned on.

Just a thought :)

 

There haven't been BIOS updates for a few months now.

Either/hopefully that means they are working on something for us or else nothing is in the making and it's on standstill...

Yesterday i wrote this:

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-11e-Windows-13-E-and/E490-severe-graphic-issues/m-p/4611639#M34423

 

Than i found out other similar discussions like this one.

What I noticed is, after a few generic recommendations or advices on sw updating, the lack of any intervention by Lenovo staff.

So my question to all of you is:

IS YOUR COMPUTERS STILL NOT WORKING???

 

thanks

My solution - I still have bios 1.13 and I use TPFanControl to set the maximum fan speed (the number 64 is the maximum speed, the bios will never start it on its own) and the gpu temperature keeps at 72-75 degrees Celsius. In any case, this is not a solution to the problem and Lenovo should be ashamed. Now I changed my mind about Lenovo after many years having their laptops...

thanx for the reply. I consider unbelievable that Lenovo can even think of put on commerce this rubbish. It was supposed to be a serious company...
NO answer at all here, no excuses messages? **bleep**

for e490 i think this bios is even not available. A funny thing: this afternoon i downloaded the radeon utility to control the board and eventually overclock (it's from amd official page) and after installing (not even used), the system crashed and couldnt be restored in any way. I was forced to perform a system recover and essentially a reinitialization of windows, deleting all my previous installations.
wonderful.

and by the way, sorry for bothering you again, which kind of fan control are you using?
