I also noticed today Lenovo Intelligent Thermal Solution got new version. So maybe this is the fix I requested (for RDP) - will check.

[New functions or enhancements]- Improve thermal control for Modern Standby

 

Thanks!  I was up to date on the latest BIOS but Vantage never offered me this new driver. I have installed and restarted Lenovo Intelligent Thermal Solution service. Hoping for the best. 🤞🤞

Had a 0.39 GHz speed issue again this morning during a Zoom meeting, after updating to the new Lenovo Intelligent Thermal Solution driver. So I've just disabled the service again. 🤷‍♀️

 

Edit: I see a lot of mention of Intel, but I'm on AMD so unfortunately all those Intel tricks don't work for me. That said, just disabling the Lenovo Thermal service has been working well for me and my colleague so far.

I'm wondering if lack of this "intelligent" driver is noticeable?

I don't have it on my system. What does it do exactly, does it improve (reduce) fan noise?

The driver is called "Intelligent Thermal Solution Driver" and in the readme for the installer it says the following about the package - This software installs the software support for Intelligent Cooling. It should definitely improve the thermal behavior of your machine, compared to the state without the driver installed.

New BIOS (1.41) and new Lenovo Intelligent Thermal Solution Driver (2.0.382.3) installed today, same exact problem.  Currently locked at 0.45Ghz on a P14s Gen2 1165g7 on Best Performance.  I think I'm done with this experiment.

I might have spoke too soon. It only happened the one time so far, and it recovered without me needing to cycle the power settings back and forth. This does seem better.

After further testing, I believe this issue is resolved for the T series (although perhaps not the Ts). I however am still having issues, but I can say with certainty that it is now related to the T500 + 1165g7 thermals of the p14s, so I will take my issue over to the P series forums.

Re:T14s extreme throttling (<0.5ghz instead of 3-4.5ghz)

My users did some tests during August (unfortunately not that many since they switched to MacBooks), but they didn't notice 0,39GHz anymore nor <1GHz.

So I believe that finally this problem has been resolved with BIOS Update from June 12th.

This of course relates to Lenovo ThinkPad T14s 20T0.

 

I suggest closing this thread and marking it as solved.

I believe there are still issues on other models but they should be solved in their own threads (It will be also easier for others to find such thread).

 

I am glad it's finally over :) shame it took a year :(

Big thanks from me to @JDOnno and many many others here who contributed to this thread and probably thanks to this Lenovo noticed problem and solve it.

Definitely not fixed for T14s version, better keep this thread open, it already became huge and they hadn't already fixed it.
