T430 NVS 5400m not running at full speed?

#1 Post by TPFanatic » Wed Jul 15, 2020 9:23 pm

I have a functioning T430 with Optimus, however according to HWMonitor the NVS 5400m is topping at

Graphics 475 mhz
Memory 900 mhz
Processor 950 mhz

When according to Notebookcheck it should have the following

Core Speed 660 MHz
Shader Speed 1320 MHz
Memory Speed 1800 MHz

I'm guessing Core and Shader correspond to Processor and Graphics respectively. Is mine running at its full potential? :cry:

Does GPU-Z and MSI Afterburner report the same clock speeds?

Are you absolutely sure that your NVS 5400M is not slowed down by a power-saving profile?
