    bits of color

    frc is emulation of smaller number of bits to a higher number to simulate better color quality, cost saving measures

    Can anyone share some battery tips? I'm only getting about 6 hours of light usage (browser-centric work).

    Clean install of Win 10 here. i7/FHD touch screen. Undervolted -100mv.

    What kind of applications are you using? 6 hours is a fair amount for coding with an IDE and Database or photo / video editing.
    If that's just light browsing and Office I would contact Lenovo.

    nearing 10 hour just fine here


    I'd check for DPTF driver and power driver from Lenovo support page

    update retreiver (desktop standalone app) doesn't display all the drivers correctly as of now
