Results are in. Nothing changed, it's still broken.

At this point, I'm pretty sure this is not a bug, but an intentional modification introduced in bios 1.14. And if that's the case, it's really sad :(

Lenovo should at least give us the option in bios to disable GPU throttling, even if comes ON by default... But let users choose for God sake...

It's probably because his device was released after bios 1.13, so this version is not available for it.


You are totally right, I reviewed all release dates for E590 bios versions and it comes months after E580 bios ver 1.13.
So for me there is no single solution and I have to wait until they fix it and disable my graphics card :( what a waste of resources and money!

To: Patt0. THX, i supposed. What now?
To: Tomy_Silver. Oh, sy. No known advice :-(
To: fernandopenafil1. Agree, but - Leave it to user? Give freedom? In our leftist "progresive liberally democratic" times ? Oh, which one happy country do you live in? :-)

Seems last hope for us all is some (gamer) journalist who buys this and smashes the case over media :-)

Re: Thinkpad E580 - Radeon RX 550 performance issue

I just bought a Lenovo E490 with Radeon RX550X... After installing the drivers from the AMD website at least the dedicated GPU is now being used in CSGO but its absolutely horrible. I have huge freezes/lags every 5 seconds even in the starting menu? Im very disappointed because i wanted to have a laptop with dedicated GPU to at least be able to play sometimes when Im not at home. I did a Furmark test and the GPU didnt get over 63 degrees celcius. If i understood correctly this is caused by the throtteling of the newer bios versions.

 

I see the 1.13 bios is not available for this model. Is there any option for me? 

 

Best regards

@ the E590 owners posting in this thread; your systems have different components to the E580 and a different driver set. By all means start a new thread for that system but please refrain from distracting the conversation in this E580 discussion thread.

 

Thank you.
