What should i expect from a low-bg laptop?

 Share

Hello. So i bought laptop for 550€ etc. 600$ and it have some really terrible performance (it can't play CS:GO even on low settings,other games on average 20FPS). It have 8GB RAM,AMD Radeon R5 CPU and R5 integrated GPU + AMD Radeon 530 Dedicated GPU. What should i expect from it? Is this normal performance of a 600$ laptop? Should i return laptop and buy some other laptop in the same price?

CS:GO should run at 60-80 fps on low settings with a Ryzen 5 2500U. Can you please give us the model of your laptop?

You should expect to be wishing that you build a $600 desktop with a real video card in it. that GPU has about the same benchmark performance as intel HD 4000, so its not good for a whole lot.

Hold up, I have an R5 2500U but I use its integrated graphics and im pushing like 100ish FPS on the IGPU at 1080p low. Something is either not right with your laptop or that Radeon 530 must suck

Well most time i use integrated GPU too becouse it have simmilar performance to the AMD Radeon 530 probably slightly better, but it's have lower RAM.

You sure you didnt get like a 9W configuration? The R5 2500U can be configured as a 9W part and thus lose a ton of preformance

Ideapad 330 (Ryzen) has worse performance than HP Envy x360 15 (Ryzen) due to firmware/BIOS limitation, if I remembered correctly

I think this may be the issue i updated bios and then the performance dropped a lot. Is there any way to disable the bios limitations?

Unfortunately no. Unless you're software expert

Well. I will probably return it and buy laptop from other company. It's really bad experience when the computer is slowed down on purpose.

I find that highly interesting.  Do you know more about this limitation like what Lenovo was trying to do in their patch (lower thermals/power?) or was this just a botched-BIOS update?

 (I'll happily save you the typing and accept a link if there's an online article or something on it).

Well even before bios patch or update the performance was low too but it was (almost playable). After bios update the temps dropped, i figured it out becouse the computer is not warm anymore. And after update bios now have 2 exit tabs for whatever reason, and each of them have differen buttons and button descriptions. I think the update just screwed things up. Sorry for late response i don't know why but the messages are arriving to me after long time.

Yeah the tl;dr is that if your budget is 550 euro you don't have enough for a gaming laptop.  You can go to the used market for PC stuff, or gamer-lite stuff.

 

I've seen the computer situation best summed-up on other forums this way:  You can pick ONLY 2 out of 3 from this list: Laptop, Cheap, Gaming

(Hint: if you picked cheap and gaming, you're not getting a laptop, you're building your own or buying parts on craiglist/eBay).

Bcoz Ryzen driver/firmware sucks in general. Not just Lenovo but also some other models from different brands
