Re: E420s switchable graphics with opengl

[ Edited ]

Just my two cents. I don't have any issues with openGL like some other users as I don't use any use any programs that utilise it. However, I am concerned with the complete failure to keep drivers updated. This has always been something I've hated when it came to PCs, and PC gaming on laptops specifically, manufacturer specific drivers. I bought an E520 on the basis of ThinkPad's reputation, regardless of the IBM/Lenovo change. The driver for the AMD 6630m found in my machine, and E420 machines, is now FOUR, almost FIVE, versions behind. This is causing issues with a lot of newer games out there. Now, while I understand ThinkPads are business orientated computers, that still doesn't justify such slow driver support.

 

Other users have mentioned that other manufacturers seem to have kept their drivers updated. While I am impressed with my ThinkPad's optimised performance and all, I may just go back to ASUS for my next laptop purchase if this is the sort of driver support for ThinkPads, which is shame because I've been really impressed with my E520.

2 weeks since that famous "Google Earth works fine" reply.

No word from any lenovo rep after that, again, are you kidding me?

@All,

Sorry as I was away for the past 2 weeks. Based on the case update from engineering, the team has replicated the issue and has been escalated to development to fix this issue.

Re: RE: E420s switchable graphics with opengl

Do you have any sort of timeline as to when we might see a fix?

 

Are we talking days, weeks, or months?
