T470p - Clumsy graphic quality with s

2017-04-17, 9:51 AM

Hello everyone,

 

So, I just received my new T470p FHD, 16GB Ram Thinkpad.

I noticed that some windows have very blurry or clumsy quality compared to the rest. Here are some examples:

 

Notice the "Scan this drive for errors" window and the Lenovo Settings.

Notice the "uTorrent" and "Lenovo settings" window.

 

I'm not sure if you notice it from the first sight, however, while working with this Thinkpad, I can notice it really good that there's a quality difference between some windows.

 

Graphics card and Nvidia are up2date. Anybody might have a solution for this?

I believe this is because of scaling in win10. try setting your scaling to 100% and see if every window is script as it should be. if this is the case you can work from there. I've been playing around with the settings on my WQHD T470s because of this. I am relatively happy now with 125% and disabled scaling at high DPI with my main programs (right click on the .exe, compatibility and clicking the right option in "settings")

This actually did it, however 100% is way to small and I dont want to overstrain my eyes. At 125%, it stays clumsy too.

I know it does, but it is not as bad. From here you can use the disable-setting at high dpi for your ost used .exes. Some systemwindows just stay blurry. I don't know how to make it perfect but as of right now i can work with it. If anyone knows a better way, i am open to try anything. i don't know why this is a problem in win10, with win7 on my old machine everything was as crisp as it get with scaling of 150%.

I know, still 100% is all around too small. Waiting for a tech-guy to comment on this one ;)

Windows 10 scaling doesn't depend on the brand and model of the machine, what matters is the factor and the resolution of the panel.  Some applications do better with scaling than others.

 

I don't know how well windows 10 scaling relates to windows 10.  I tend set the main display size slider to 100% and try to set sizes in applications that display too small for me.

I don't have this issue, I have my scaling at 125% and 150% without any issues.

Can you please make sure that you have the latest Graphic drivers, chipset, Intel Management Engine 11.6 Firmware and so on.

And I checked Processors and so on, still no luck. You can even see on device manager that it looks clumsy.
