    Reread your post. 25.20.100.6472 is still the version that was released way back in August.

    1. I have not downladed the driver from intel web page. I have launched Lenovo Vantage and under System Update I've pressed on update search. Intel driver was there for update.
    2. I don't know if it were there before but I do have the Control Panel. I've never used it.
    3. Where I should look to find this option?

    P.D.
    I've found it under Energy.

    I don't remember the version number before updating. It was 24.20.100.something. This something was greater than the 6223 that appears on post #17 but less than 6472 and for sure it was not a 25.20. but a 24.20

    According to windows the driver is dated 10/12/2018. As my region is Europe I bet that it is december 10th rather than October 12th.

    I checked Lenovo's site and it still has the old Intel graphics driver 24.200.100.6223 for the X1 Carbon 6. If I get the latest drivers directly from Intel, the control panel will have to be downloaded separately from Microsoft's store because Intel no longer bundles it with driver. Is there a way to get the latest drivers with the Intel control panel included without getting it from Microsoft store?

    The current Intel graphics driver available for download on the Lenovo t480s driver page identifies itself as version 25.20.100.6472 (correct), but lists its release date 08 Nov 2018 (incorrect). According to the accompanying readme txt this 25.20.100.6472 driver was actually released 16 Jan 2019 (see version history from txt below). I have installed this much newer release and will report back on any issues that were resolved / any new issues I experience.

    Do you still see the intel control panel when you right click with the new drivers?

    The new 25.20.100.6472 install directly from Lenovo *does* include the Intel Graphics Settings control panel.

    Had to disable PSR from the control panel to avoid random graphics driver freezes with this driver too (just like previous versions of this driver).

    Got a T480s a couple of months ago...8650u and MX150....thermal throttling issue was extremely pronounced. Recently repasted my CPU with Arctic Silver 5 and viola! thermal throttling is history!! previously I was getting 96-98c package temperatures and thermal throttling under full load. After repasting, full load temperatures have dropped to 79-80c and ZERO thermal throttling.
    However, now I'm experiencing Power Limit Throttling under full load...turning off Speed Step in BIOS also gets rid of that....lets see what other better solution someone has to offer.
    Cheers!

    ThrottleStop and a undervolt. Could pick up a few more degrees with GC Extreme/Kryonaut or LM.

    How is lenovo able to include the control panel with the newer drivers since Intel is no longer including it with the graphics driver? Do you see the control panel in your context-menu when you right click or is it a separate app?
