Turn Off X1 Extreme Throttling When Running on Battery

Q: Turn Off X1 Extreme Throttling When Running on Battery

Hello, Before writing this message, I have combed through many articles and forum posting but couldn't find anything that helped. When I benchmark the machine running on AC, it performs as expected. When I run the same tests on battery, the performance is horrible - about 1/3 of the performance compared to AC. I have already checked all my OS power management profiles, to ensure that the scheme used for battery is the same on AC; I made sure the slider on on the battery icon is all the way to the right (Best Performance); I've gone into BIOS to set Maximum Performance for CPU speed stepping as well as Thermal Management Scheme. No matter what I do, I can't get it to run at full performance on battery. All I'm trying to achieve is have the laptop run as fast on battery as on AC, with the obvious expectation that the battery will drain fast (which is fine). Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Sherman

As the states. Thermal throttling is tripped at 80C. Toggled intelligent cooling, TDP settings, AC doesn't affect it, tried all other BIOSes. Reviews and other users show that the model can clearly hit 100C, but I've tried everything to no avail.

I'm having the same issue. My wifes mid range i5 that is another 3 years older than my i7 Helix is much, much faster... Honestly I have never been more dissapointed with a purchase. I have even opened it up, cleaned everything, re-applied fresh thermal paste and replaced the SSD with a new Samsung 850 EVO. Disabling absolutely all throttling and power management in Windows makes it kind of acceptable to use, but that leaves me with no sleep management or anything. I'm a bit stumped with what else I can try.

Hi, So I got my new x1 extreme yesterday. However, one thing I've noticed is high CPU temps (55 celsius) while idling, and it throttles to 2.7ghz while gaming. It is the 8850h. The clock speeds while gaming seem a little low. The fans go on and off every minute, and I think it might be related to lenovos thermal paste job. Would you guys recommend repasting the CPU? I dont know what else it could be. Thanks!

Is it possible to raise the cTDP of the Yoga 370?Currently my i3 throttles at a low 60 degrees celsius because of a 10W cTDP. I am sure the cooling system can take a higher temperature of 70 degrees safely. I have used Throttlestop to confirm that the limit is due to cTDP and not temperature (i processors can run way hotter safely). When throttling at 10W my i3 (without Turbo Boost) cannot maintain clock speeds. I'm sure this is worse for those with i5 and above so please increase the cTDP. If 15W is too high maybe 12-13W instead of the current 10W will help a lot. My readings were taken when plugged in and on all high performance settings enabled.This is important as with the 10W cTDP limit active, the CPU runs between 1.4-1.6ghz under load which is a drastic drop and not necessary since temperature is only 60 degrees celsius.

Hi, my CPU is i7-8550u and my GPU is MX150. V2.05 of the BIOS (4qcn41ww) works well. However, the big issue is that the fan curve is so high that fans will spin 24/7, even on idle. The laptop is able to overclock/underclock in response to demand needs. Excellent, but too loud. I upgraded to V2.07, which definitely fixed the fan curve problem, especially when "Quiet Mode" is selected in the BIOS. HOWEVER, there is one extreme issue, the clock speed will be fixed to a single speed indefinitely until reboot. The clock speed is not able to dynamically change. This is terrible because it either is fixed to 0.4Ghz (EXTREMELY SLOW) or 1.8Ghz (still slow, bearable, but I shouldn't have to deal with this in my purchase). These clock speeds were provided by Windows Task Manager. The throttle starts at a random time, and doesn't end until the computer is rebooted. After dealing with V2.07, I've reverted to V2.05 (provided by a Lenovo Chat assistant). I'm back to loud fans, but a properly running device. This issue is not heat related, I don't think. I have a CPU temperature reading, and it throttles to 0.4Ghz even at 45C (which is idle). I've attempted to fix this problem, if it may be thermals, by applying an undervolt via Throttlestop. However, the issue persists regardless of it throttlestop is running or not. I've ran an Official Lenovo Hardware Scan, and my computer comes up clean. For a $1000 laptop, I'm really surprised at how shoddy o... Read more

When using my P51 on battery power it seems to throttle heavily regardless of the bios options, or the Windows option to allow for best performance.  Running something like the benchmark utility in CPU-Z the processor will start at a higher clockrate and then fall to 800Mhz quickly.  The system acts as expected on battery, the clockspeed stays high and is very quick. Can anything be done to allow for something inbetween on the battery?  I'd rather have a little less battery life than sometimes getting a bit of lag running at 800Mhz. Thanks

Got the fully specced 9560, so far working fine when plugged in, but when it's on the battery the CPU is throttled under 1GHz which causes a lot of applications to slow down considerably. I've tried changing the power saving settings to high performance, checked the CPU settings in power savings and set them the same for battery and plugged in, but to no avail.
Does anyone know how to sort this out? It's ridiculous not to be able to use anything at full speed when the power isn't plugged in. I don't care if it extends my battery performance, I want to be able to actually work when not plugged in, even if it's only for a couple of hours.

This does not necessarily happen on low battery - it sometimes happens when I have over 50% battery life left (albeit the removable battery is low), and sometimes when i have less than 25% battery life left. My temperatures appear to be good (according to Core Temp), usually around 40-50C. Has anyone encountered this problem before?

I was looking into editing the vbios of the video card but could not figure out how to. I do not believe that im overloading the battery either since it is a 9 cell.

Hi, I got a problem with my X! Yoga 3rd gen which I cannot resolve on my own. Perhaps somebody has a hint for me. I got a Unit with the 17.8550u. On AC power it delivers superb performance. However when on DC, the system is throttled to 0.99ghz max, no matter waht. I already set all bios settings for Thermal management to max performance and I updated all drivers and bios. I only have the balanced power-plan installed on windows. As far as i understand Microsoft has changed the conecpt of power management recently, so there is no "Performance" power plan any more and also no settings for the min/max CPU performance.Using the new settings (right click on the battery icon, selecting Best Performance) also brings no improvment, the cpu ist capped to 0.,99 GHZ Has anybody an Idea how to solve the Problem?

Hello everyone, I recently purchased a refurbished Thinkpad W541 that came with Windows 10. On Windows 10, the laptop had some sleep issues that had something to do with the GPU setup and Windows 10 compatibility on the laptop. A clean (non-OEM) Windows 8.1 reinstall later, I fixed the issue but ran into a new one: whenever I unplug the laptop and run it on battery, it immediately locks CPU clock speed on all cores to about 750-780mhz (the bottom of the SpeedStep spectrum for my CPU, the 4910MQ), a completely unusable speed even for YouTube videos and web browsing. No amount of load from any program will make it boost any higher (namely using wPrime). So I checked the usual power plan options and maxed everything out, but nothing worked. I ended up spending so much time diving into this rabbit hole and trying so many different things that it's easiest for me to just list everything I've tried so far:1) setting a high performance power plan in windows, and customizing that plan by maxing out all settings2) setting high performance power mode for speedstep in the bios3) installing the ThinkVantage PowerManager and maxing out performance options there4) Following this ArsTechnica thread and installing the Intel CPPC driver, then turning off all the energy effeciency aggressiveness options5) Checking that temps are ok (they are, under 50c)6) Using ThrottleStop's BD_PROCHOT tool to stop throttling (Didn't work) After doing all of these things, I started to wonder wh...

Hi everyone, I just got a Thinkpad x270 and I'm having an issue where the processor gets throttled to 60c / 2GHz when the lid is closed on battery power.  I posted about it in detail on the Linux Mint forums here.  I originally thought this was a Linux kernel / driver issue, but it turns out this happens on Windows too, no matter whether I set every setting in the BIOS and OS power management to max performance, power save, balanced, etc.  I can get around this by closing the lid on A/C power and then unplugging, or just running the  laptop on A/C while the lid is closed.  If there is some kind of inherent danger in running the processor over 60c with the lid closed, I would expect it to thermal throttle at that temperature regardless of whether or not it was plugged in when the lid was closed.  I can also boot up the laptop with the lid closed and bypass the throttling limitation. It seems like either:- the temperature should always be throttled to 60c when the lid is closed for some reason, and it's not being enforced in all scenarios even though it should be, or...- it's a bug and the CPU shouldn't be throttled at such a low temperature at all. Either way, it seems like there is a firmware issue that needs to be fixed.  Can anyone from Lenovo shed some light on this issue?  Is it by accident or by design?

I have tried every possible solution to find out what the problem here is and am unable to find any way to fix it. I have maxed out all power settings in windows power manager (including advanced settings. I have maxed out everything to do with battery power in the bios settings. I have used throttlestop and disabled bd prochshot. Used nvidia inspector and evga to try and overclock them over. The GPU is specifically locked in at 457.3mHz on the battery, While plugged in, I can get the gpu to around 750mHz or about 830mHz if im overclocking. Does anyone else have this issue and know if this is a windows, driver, or bios problem. I am running my laptop off a 9 cell battery and I am certain that it would provide enough power to all the components. It is my belief that each lithium cell can safely discharge about 5 amps each which means that with a 3s3p setup, you will get about 10.8 volts at about 15 amps. With this configuration and using ohms law, I have found that the battery of this laptop is capable of providing about 162 watts of power to all the components. This is around the same power of the charger (170 watts) which is enough to power the computer at full speed and still have enough to charge the battery at the same time.

Hey, I have the following problem: For some time now, my U41-70 throttles down to 0.48 Ghz with the fan constantly running. This behaviour is likely to something called thermal throttling or BD PRODHOT, where other hardware tells the CPU to throttle down in order to not overheat. The throttling can be circumvented using Throttlestop (or MSR on Ubuntu), but having the fan constantly running is quite unbearable. I already tried a number of things, including updating the BIOS. Unfortunately, in the BIOS there does not seem to be an option to turn of thermal throttling altogether. I also cleaned the fan, and tried to change the fan speed manually. None of these measures had any effect. My interpretation of this is that some heat sensor is broken, because the the sensors I can access rarely show a temperature above 40°C. I do not have any warranty any more, so I can not just send the laptop in. If I could make out where the faulty sensor is, I could maybe exchange that part of hardware. Does anybody have an idea what part I should replace, or how else I could solve this?I run my U41-70 on Windows and Ubuntu, with the problem occuring on both. I have a 256GB SSD, an Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB RAM.

Hi,
I got a new Aurora R7 yesterday, with Intel core i7-8700 CPU. Right off the bat, when I was installing browser, and doing other small stuff, I could see that the fans would spin at high RPM and create a lot of noise. 
I opened Command center and saw that at small loads 15-25% of CPU, the package temperature was high, from 68C going to 84C and fans would spin high and it would again come down to 60s.
I decided to do stress test using Dell Support assist and temperatures reached 98-99C within 3 minutes and fans were blowing so hard it felt like an airplane was about to takeoff.
I decided to dig further and downloaded Intel Extreme Tuning utility. When I run stress test, I can see that MAX Core Frequency drops to 4.28 GHZ and temperatures rise to more than 90C. It does not reach the processor max speed of 4.60 GHZ at all during stress test.
I feel there is an issue in how the CPU and Heat sink are connected and something is wrong.

Hi all, It has been about a month since I received the new X1 Extreme, and it has been quite good so far, but today, for some unknown reason, I've run into some apparent battery issues. I charged my computer overnight yesterday, and when I tried using it in class today, it wouldn't start. The red light on the ThinkPad logo wasn't flashing at all, so something was off. I tried turning it on many times, but nothing happened.  When I came home, I plugged it in and it allowed me to turn it on, but it was stuck at 46% charge and wouldn't move (even after an hour - a period of time sufficient to charge the computer up to 80%). Then, as I was writing this post, a loud 2 bell ringing sound came on and the computer shut down. When I started it up again (connected to the AC adapter), the Lenovo Vantage battery icon displayed an "X" and the Windows battery appeared empty. I made sure to back up everything and updated BIOS and other drivers just in case, but nothing seemed to work. If I disconnect the AC adapter, the computer immediately dies. Like this, the computer is no longer useful to me since I need it on the go.  I'll contact Lenovo support once my schedule frees up a bit, but if this has happened before and you've found a solution, I'd like to get this back to normal as soon as possible. Thanks,  Reilly

I have been having no luck with regards to this laptop and its quite appalling battery life!  I have had the machine since November 2018 and according to my Windows 10 Battery Report my Estimated Avg battery life is 2h47min.  This is a FAR cry from the 7+ hours advertised.  This is running Chrome and Visual Studio Code.  I would like an actual answer from a Lenovo Representative regarding this as this is a far cry from what I was expecting!

A:Lenovo X1 Extreme - Shocking Battery Life

I am also running Chrome and VS Code on my P1, which has the same hardware as X1 Extreme, but on Linux. I can get 7-8 hour battery life when running Intel GPU. Battery life with NVIDIA GPU is much shorter. If you connect your laptop to external monitors, it has to run NVIDIA GPU, so that might be affecting battery life.

I recently purchased an X1 extreme i7 4k and get a max of 3.5 hours of battery per charge. I use the device at 60-80% brightness without the backlit keyoard. Mainly on chrome and other Office365 products, nothing too crazy. I recently disabled the graphics card via the device manager, but that did not seem to help. Any ideas? Was wondering if this is a common issue? 3.5 hours of battery is a deal breaker.

A:Lenovo X1 Extreme terrible battery life ~3.5h

If you read some other comments regarding the battery life you will notice that after you use it for a while, things begin to calm down. Why don?t you give this a try and see if it works on your new system
