Re:Latest Intel Graphics Driver Makes Display Dim

Actually, since I disabled the integrated graphics in BIOS, apart from getting the maximum brightness back, everything runs much smoother... before doing that, even scrolling files in explorer always felt somewhat not smooth, and programs like Adobe Indesign were lagging a lot (even when launching them specifically with Nvidia gpu). Of course battery life has taken a big hit, but for me performance is incomparable, which is kind of weird, wouldn't have expected such a difference.

The problem with this solution is that apparently the dedicated card wasn’t designed to retrieve and work full time. So, there is a potential durability issue in the long term. I need this laptop to keep reliable and functional for the next 10 years, because this will be my last Windows computer. I will buy Macs for now on instead.

This means Lenovo has found the root cause of the issue and it's only a matter of time before a driver update is rolled out on all models.

Well I never thought this day would come. Can anybody else confirm the latest driver fixes the problem on the X1 Carbon?

Maybe it's a fix for a bug in the previous driver, so-called maintenance.

Just on this topic of backlight / display issues

 

Since theres almost no information on the forums about it thought i'd share,,, anyone thats noticing the variable backlight brightness with any of the intel drivers, this can be disabled by using the app found on github: https://github.com/orev/dpst-control

 

This disables the Intel DPST which will prevent the backlight from adjusting intensity based on what's on screen -- an extremely annoying feature

I can confirm that the latest driver (27.20.100.8729) also corrects the issue for X1 Yoga 4th gen. The screen is back to normal.

 

Thanks!

Hey Everyone,

Lenovo released the latest driver ( Version 27.20.100.8729) and installed it on my X1 Carbon 7th, and the 500 nit brightness was restored; the issue was finally fixed!

A silly question: can we (with the X1 extreme) install (somehow) the .8729 driver for X1 Carbon which corrects the max brightness problem? Has anyone tried it?
