No Turbo in bios, and no i don't think it's enabled by default.

Recommended Posts

I got this LENOVO Ideapad 720 a few days ago and it comes with a:

 

Graphics card: AMD Radeon RX 550

Cpu: i7-8550u 1.8ghz, turbo: 4.0ghz

Ram: 16gb

 

My problem is that in task manger it says that the maximum cpu speed is at 1.99ghz when it should be at 4ghz (if it's enabled by default). I tried going over to bios and found nothing helpful. I tried cpu z and when i did do cpu intensive stuff it only when up to somewhere around 798.10mhz so it doesn't go up the 1.99ghz limit. It is really affecting my gaming and work.

Did you change your power plan to performance in windows power setting?

Please check the CPU temperature while doing a intense task. It may not be going at full speed because of thermal limits. ;) 

I have the Same CPU and you can over clock it by changing the power limit With Intel's Extreme Tuning software.

then it can hold it's turbo for longer if the cooling allows it.

 

which i think it does because i have the X1 Tablet and it holds up pretty well, and a laptop should do even better .

My temps are fine and isn't hot at all. I found something else though, on those images below the first one it seems like my cpu is only running on the bus and is giving out only 99.7mhz but on the turbo clock side it says it can run 4000.0mhz and i want to enable that.

I'll try that out, thanks.

Note that this is a Turbo boost, not a full time set clockspeed.

But you can extend it with the Intel Extreme Tuning software, i can send you some screenshot's of my settings when i get home if you give me a DM.

 

Unless other people want to see it too which i doubt :P

For some reason whenever i do any cpu intensive my cpu speed only goes up to 1.97ghz and doesn't go up any higher and that really affects the performance, i have an intel i7 8550u which has a base frequency of 1.80ghz and max turbo frequency of 4.00ghz. At the moment in task manager it says that the maximum cpu speed is 1.99ghz. Alot of things is wrong here, first my cpu speed only goes up to 1.97ghz and secondly it says maximum cpu speed is 1.99ghz when it's supposed to be 4.00ghz. If anyone has a solution to this please reply.

That's cause it's a laptop and the "4ghz" advertised just means on one core at one time.  You might be able to get to the bios and increase it, but I doubt t on a laptop.


I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

What do you mean by that? You mean that the 4ghz is only running on 1 core or since i have a quad core cpu, each core is running at 4ghz?

1 of your 4 cores will turbo to 4Ghz for as long as the task requires or you hit thermal throttleing. Listen to the people telling you about EXT. You can change your power setting to performance and overclock some. But your laptop was never meant to run the full CPU at 4Ghz.

Ah alright. bit of disappointed though. Thanks alot!!
