    Hi,

    right now I'm using this Lenovo IdeaPad 320s-13ikb.
    the GPU always hitting power limit according to MSI Afterburner monitoring and the GPU clock going down to ~800mhz, base clock should be 937mhz.
    temps are good, about 60-65°c (stable at 60).
    I guess the problem is the AC adapter? it's 65w adapter I believe, should be enough for 8250u + 10w mx150.
    or maybe Lenovo set them lower with the bios?
    any thoughts?

    thanks!

    Lenovo set the tdp in the vbios too low.
    Nothin can be done, because even if the vbios is not built in the system bios, you still need an spi programmer to flash a modded vbios with higher tdp.
