Re: Thinkpad E580 - Radeon RX 550 performance issue

I think by default bios rollback protection is disabled but in case it's not you will get an error while trying to install the older version.

 

To install the 1.13 version of bios jus go to the drivers download page of e580 on lenovo's support page. Then from the list of drivers and software find BIOS/UEFI and click on the Details icon of row with BIOS Update. (link if you're too lazy: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/dk/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-EDGE-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-E580-TYPE-20KS-20KT/downloads/DS501843) Now on the new page scroll down, you will find a table of older versions of bios. There you can easily locate row with appropiate version. If you are on windows then just download the .exe file and run it. Software will take you through the process.

Thanks for all the help, I downgraded the BIOS and I am very happy with the graphics card performance now. Getting 40 to 60 fps on Skyrim ultra settings (I was getting 30 before changing bios to 1.13.

Guys, good news!

5 days ago Lenovo released new bios version (1.33) which has this line in it's changelog:

- Improved the performance when the system were under high loading

I updated my bios to this version and did a quick test for 10 minutes in cs:go. Seems like the thermal throttling is gone! Hope it's not the case of me not playing long enough to hit it.

 

Edit: Nevermind, turns out it is still throtthling.

You mean GPU throttling or just the normal throttling? If at least the GPU throttling was fixed, that would be awesome... :/

GPU throttling was fixed. In GTA5 on 1920x1080 (low settings) 30-60 FPS without any throttlings.

In this latest bios (1.33)? Because it wasn't before... I've been testing all bios versions since 1.13 and GPU throttling was still very present...

I'll say that's not really true. Got hit by GPU throttling multiple times during longer test on 1.33.
