Re: P53 Performance Issues - Thermal/Power Throttling?

So as it stands right now, while running benchmark, there would be no performance drop when I move, shake or otherwise disturb the laptop;

Memory / Core frequencies remain stable;

I do have to run TPFanControl or it will throttle (to termals) few minutes into the run [ due to outrageous Lenovos fan curves and lack of manual control thereto ]

When I first got the laptop, I had exactly the issue you describe (though I though it is thermal related first)

Software goes on as follows:

Quadro Driver
No Lenovo Vantage

Intel Thermal Thingy
Lenovo PM Device
Lenovo Power Manager
Lenovo Intelligent Thermal Solutions

All three appear to be active (though I remember taking em down)

Lenovo Active Protection System Driver - Missing, Killed that; Will not autoreinstall in the absence of Vantage trash;

Doing dGPU only mode (primarily due to external monitor glitch)

 

I also vaguely remember disabling/uninstalling device related to NVidia Audio, per other forum member advice

Re: P53 Performance Issues - Thermal/Power Throttling?

Re: P53 Performance Issues - Thermal/Power Throttling?

Hi all!

I'm sure it's been written before, but do this:

 

In Lenovo Vantage Enterprise: (New version of Lenovo Vantage is missing features)

Hardware Settings,

 

Power, Airplane Power Mode:

Turn OFF "Enable Airplane power mode", Uncheck "Enable auto-detection". LVE_HS_Airplane.jpgAirplane Power Mode

Smart Settings, Intelligent Cooling:
Turn OFF "Enable Intelligent Cooling",
Click "Performance".

LVE_Smart_Cooling.jpgIntelligent Cooling

Works on my P52,

Lenovo Vantage version 20.1908.3.0,

Windows 10 1809

Re: P53 Performance Issues - Thermal/Power Throttling?

Hi! Can I ask what your settings are in TPFanControl and if you need to open it each time after you boot Windows? Thanks again.

Re: P53 Performance Issues - Thermal/Power Throttling?

After trying all options out both suggested by Lenovo and this forum, I had to conclude for myself that there are issues with the throttling or power management software on the P53 that are not present on the P72 that I have as well. Lenovo premiere support was excellent and went above and beyond to try to solve the issue, but engineer support decided not to take up the issue. I was not able to get a DAW to run well on the P53 series but was able to on a P72. I would not recommend the P53 for audio software. My guess is that might coincide with the conclusions of some on this thread which is why I am posting it here. It took me 3 months and two different P53's, hours of testing to finally come to this conclusion. I like the machines, just wished they were usable for me. Best of luck.

Re: P53 Performance Issues - Thermal/Power Throttling?

Do all configurations of P52 have these issues? How about P53 running Linux?

Re: P53 Performance Issues - Thermal/Power Throttling?

A new BIOS 1.18 came out today. I'm still very skeptical if it'll do anything though.

New BIOS makes no difference for me. Still limping along...
