Re: Thinkpad E580 - Radeon RX 550 performance issue

What game you played during your test? This is very important, because not all games are demanding enough to hit throttling temps... I think you guys know which throttling issue I'm talking about... It makes the GPU useless after a few minutes playing, it throttles down the frequency to 200-300mhz. Totally obliterates the GPU...

It's was not game, I tested in FurMark and aida64.

If you do not believe, you can try it yourself

It's not a matter of believe. People's experiences can be different. I do believe GPU is not throttling for you, but that always depends on how much load is being pushed to the GPU and CPU. I don't know how demanding FurMark is, I never used. I usually try to benchmark using games and sometimes they tell a different history.... I might try this new version in the next few days. I'll report back my results.

It's not only about a game being demanding. You also need to play it for a while to actually start hitting the throttling. I haven't exactly timed it but I think it takes around 10 minutes to hit the first throttling period, after that these happen more often.

This means that testing done by silovi4 most likely wasn't long enough.

Sy, same for me on 1.31 ... (witcher3), maybe a bit better, maybe not, but GPU core drop to 200Mhz occured again -> reverting to 1.13, that is OK.

@silov4
You probably didn't pushed the system to its limit to see the throttling, that's why you think it was fixed. Benchmarks are not reliable in this case, you need to play some games for long enough... And not even all games can elevate the temperature to reach the throttling point... If you prove that you're able to play overwatch for more than 30 minutes without any GPU throttling, that's another story...

Sorry, you were right. I did not load the GPU long enough. After an hour of playing GTA5, this happened. I confirm that throttling is really there. But it is worth noting that on the firmware below 1.32 (exept 1.13) I had throttling almost immediately.

So... I'm returning to version 1.13 :robotmad:
