    Hi.

    The 15 G4 BIOS had detailed performance menu options like Multi Core Support, SpeedStep, TurboBoost, HyperThread control etc..

    The new 15 G5 has a super basic BIOS settings, similar to those found in the low end laptops. No way to modify CPU performance options.

    Disappointing!

    To be fair, 90% of those settings would be useless considering the G5 is quiped with locked processors.

    Have you purchased this laptop to find this out? I'm having trouble finding any details or reviews on it.

    Those settings are useful for real-time processing tasks, such as pro audio, regardless of the CPU being locked.

    Yes. And returned it for that.

    No problem felidae, pictures from my post are from 15 G5 with E2186M/P2000, you have an entry level 15V model (the lowest model of them all).

    Similar spec G4 (7700HQ, 620 2GB) had those settings without paying for "Xeon"

    You still dont get it do you? You bought a "value" (hence the V) entry level workstation aimed at students and hobbyists (thus not business class), and you´re complaining about missing settings aimed at enterprise? Get a non-V model and you´ll have your settings back.

    It is actually you that miss the point here (for the second time and with a bad manner too..)

    The CPU performance settings were available as a default for the entire G2 To G4 range. The removal of those from the basic models is not expected and disappointing.

    Anyone who need those settings, owned a previous ZBOOK, and thinks of an upgrade to G5, will be surprised to hear that this menu is now considered "enterprise" and is exclusively available for "Xeon" customers haha.
