Y500 Performance Setting

2013-07-13, 1:15 AM

Hi,

 

I would like to know, is there any bad effects if I used the High Performance setting in the Energy Management all the time whether the laptop in gaming mode or idle time?

 

Hope Lenovo can give a better suggestion.

 

Thank you.

Lenovo Dynamic Graphics plan actually gives more performance than High Performance Plan. Leaving the laptop in High Performance plan won't do any harm. You'll just hear fan spin up more often than a balanced plan.

I guess you have the SLI version or that Lenovo phased out that power plan on the Y500 series. It is on the Y580 and that power plan overclocks the GPU (GTX 660 M) above its base clock. Like I said before, no harm in using the highest plan. You just hear more fan noise because the CPU is always on its highest performance state just like on a desktop.
