Hello everyone,

My Gtx 1650 (Single channel 2400mhz cl17 Ram, i5 9300h, 512gb SSD) is runnin gon a to low Usage in some games. For example on 50% on CSGO or 70% in Pubg. In some games my gpu is only at a 40% usage. Its deffinately not a Bottleneck and i dont really think that its cause of the Single Channel. Ive done Like everything ive seen so war but nothing has helped me. Sry for my bad english
. My Laptop is the Lenovo L340 15IRH.

Best wishes

Leon

Are those demanding games? Im not sure, I don't think so.. I still play blacktops 2 multi occasionally and it doesn't bring my 980 to 3d clocks, its just like running a screensaver :laugh:

What's the capacity of the stick of ram?

I think that CSGO is CPU bound but dont quote me on it.

PUBG is weird a weird one. Theyve optimised the game a lot since i last played it but it can be still CPU bound on older CPUs (im not sure how it works..) The only thing i can think of is maybe you are bottlenecked by that single channel memory.

There is nothing you can do about it as your laptop only has one Ram slot. which should have 8GB of ram installed if you havent done anything to it.

Yes it only has a 2400mhz 8gb ram stick. The Cpu is running perfectly fine at 3700mhz.

Increase detail and resolution on games, contact lenovo/nvidia/gamemakers for help, also make sure to elevate that unit off the desk for proper airflow to the vents.

Heres your notebook, watch the video for disassembly

Thanks for the response, ive already tried increasing game details, helps nothing, lenovo and nvidia couldnt even help me too, ive already elevated my laptop for proper air flow. I just think that lenovo is too dumb to make proper gaming laptops and just power limited the Gpu extremely.

Actually they arent laptops but notebooks, also is that a max q gpu? And all manufacturers are like that today, if you want to game look at Eurocom, or build a Real Gaming machine.


This is a laptop, never overheated/throttled
