[F] Improve the 'performance' mode in the BIOS


#1

Since we already have a ‘performance’ mode, why not improve on it a bit :wink:

Right now it brings no noticeable performance boost, but if we were to e.g. increase the TDP in performance mode to 10W we’d have more sustained performance on the V - albeit with a bit more temperature on the housing, but I think that’s acceptable :wink:

Didn’t you say that the 7W is the max that you can cover for warranty. If you enable that settings you would need to have a warning that this will affect the warranty of the device


#3

Well Eve would have to figure a way for that - but if there’s no interest there’d be no reason to check about how it would be potentially covered.

That idea is just an idea from me as a HEB and not as Community Manager :slight_smile:


#4

The question is, is 10W enough to start throttling the CPU due to rise in temperatures with ambient cooling solution?


#5

Nope. In my testing with an i5 that particular i5 was bottlenecked at ~13W due to core temperatures, but to play it safe I’ve suggested 10W :slight_smile:

Also performance mode already increases the maximum housing temperature limit by 4° if I recall :wink:


#6

please… make this happen,… so , the i7 that we chose are more worthy :blush:


#7

I think you should have another hat to wear when you make such comments NOT AS a CM.

It is misleading to see you say such things which are experimental and could possibly jeopardise peoples warranties, should they have a subsequent problem following your suggestions.


#8

I agree that it’d be nice… lemme whip something up.

EDIT: Thank you for the suggestion, I think now it should be more clear, that I wrote that as HEB and not CM :smiley:


#9

A name change as well, would be appropriate so as not to confuse.


#10

Does anyone know what does the “performance” mode in BIOS is meant to do? I also tried it and didn’t notice any difference.


Mass performance benchmark

at the moment it doesn’t really do anything :slight_smile:

that i5 had 2 heatspreader not like the V now
