I have Lenovo P50 with M1000M I am using with bumblebee. I noticed long time ago than this configuration pretty much guaranteed to overheat, especially on linux. Problem seems to be that Nvidia and main cpu share single heating, and NVIDIA is never throttling or something like that on the levels way way higher than CPU allows. So system just shut itself down. I hope that someone will fix driver/BIOS, but two years passed already and that never happened.
I tried to contact manufacturer: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/P50-M1000M-overheating-in-Linux-while-on-NVIDIA/td-p/4015249
I basically checked everything, but there seems to be no way to lower temp of frequencies from user side. Only 3 power modes ‘full, VERY limited and VERY VERY limited’.
I know that Linux driver is provided by NVIDIA, is it possible PLEASE to lower the throttling temp somehow for Lenovo P50 configuration with M1000M inside the driver?
Thanks in advance,
