P51s and Quadro M520

How do I configure the P51s to always use the Quadro graphics GPU, my older W540 had a BIOS option to set for High performance, where the GPU ran everything, including the output to the displays...Where is the equivalent setting in the P51s, there is nothing in the BIOS that I can see

Re: P51s and Quadro M520

Hi JY_Cisco,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

 

There is no such setting sin BIOS as P51s is Low voltage and uses different processors which is less powerful as compared to W540. Also Quadro M520 uses NVIDIA® Optimus™ Technology which will help to consume less power from P51s.

  

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

The W540 used Optimus Tech as well, but still had a way to use the GPU full time...This really doesnt make sense for a piece of equipment classified as a workstation...disappointing

Well agree with you that both uses Optimus technology but W540 uses more power as compared to P51s. You can still configure the applications to run on High-Performance Mode from Nvidia Manager.
