So we all getting it. I don't understand  a desktop our gfx will be in use 24/7. apparently this, alternates between on board and our 550. **bleep** is this?! a waste of money if you ask me lol

If you download and install drivers from AMD website. The AMD GPU will run at 100%  but get really hot

Can you confirm which one exactly? because when I go direct x it still says on board is in use. not my raedon mx 550.

 

also how are you sure the on board isn't being used? because in bios display I have no option to choose my 550.

when I install catalyst it doesn't install anything so I can go onto a setting and choose 550. also in AMD settings I have no display option to choose my 550.

 

this is madness lol...

I'll just join here saying that I am also experiencing problems with the RX 550. Considering that the 1.14 version of bios introduces changes to thermal management (from changelog) it makes sense that downgrade to version 1.13 actually helps. I really hope that Lenovo will address this problem and fix the thermal management in next bios update so it's possible to play games on the dedicated gpu without periodical massive framerate drops.

Solution known (at least) since November - BIOS 1.24. Now January 1.28 released with no reaction. Loosing hope here.
