Update: X1 Extreme G2 Cinebench now north of 2500, no more throttling

I've been working w/ a Lenovo rep.  I don't know whether it's what we have done or if there's been a BIOS update which I forgot doing, but my machine is now pushing 45watts throughout the test, which keeps speeds up and, obviously, result in higher numbers.  Happily it seems that the fan is  easily able to keep core temps down--the fan does not stay on max even though TDP for the package stays at 45W.

 

I did this:

 

  1. Open device manager by right clicking the bottom left Windows icon and clicking ‘Device Manager’
  2. Under the ‘System Devices’ Category there is a ‘Lenovo Intelligent Thermal Solution’. Double-click this. (See picture below)
  3. Under the ‘Driver’ tab in this new window you’ll see options to disable or even uninstall the driver.
  4. Disable driver.
  5. Reboot
  6. Renable driver.

 

I have yet to test at length but so far it looks like problem is mostly or entirely solved.
