    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    Just chiming back in here after a while with the new one. After having the new one for a while now, I must say I am extremely happy with it. The system performs very good and I don't have really much to worry about in the terms of thermals anymore. It is working very reliably and even under...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    So I did a fresh test on the new one I got. Better than the one I will be sending back but not as good as what Cimmerian is reporting. After a fresh reboot and just running the test, this is what I got. There is a dip in temps there for a little as I walked away for a little while and the screen...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    So i tested the replacement today. With full load the processor settled in at about 87 c or so with full load while plugged in at best performance. I only ran it for a few minutes though too. Might try a longer test later like yours to see if it gets back down to the 70s. But it showed no sign...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    Yeah. If those are the temps I would see (which I expected to see based off my old one) I would be happy. I'm not expecting full desktop CPU performance but dang. Let's cook breakfast on mine.

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    One other weird thing I noticed is that on my Surface Book gen 1, when I hover over the battery indicator, it tries to estimate how much remaining battery life is left in time. I have yet to see that on the Surface Book 2. Do any of you see this at all on the new one?

    Got me email too. Looks like a Wednesday delivery. Hopefully this one will be good.

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    There is current or voltage limits that the system should be using to balance available speed in comparison to battery usage and heat disbursement. Looking at the temperatures it never got hot enough to throttle for that reason. But more likely it just was because of the sustained draw. 4.0 is...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    Cool. Thank you very much. That was the confirmation I was thinking would be the real case. There must truly be something wrong with the one I got. Even after downgrading mine with the recovery image back to 1703 I had the same problem. So it turns out that the upgrade wasn't the issue. At first...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    I actually wonder and hope that they will ship the replacements that soon. Just looking at their website it looks like the 15 inch models won't ship till the end of the month and the 1tb version won't be until 2 weeks into December. The 1tb one is the one I have since I will be putting raw video...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    Ahh Notebook review. I didn't even think to look at that forum at all to see if anyone else was having problems. I tend to agree. Maybe something with the batch of chips that was used in some of them. After a few tries running through IPDT, even with a fan blowing on the back of the machine from...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    The largest gap between received and max on mine is 9 right at the start. Then hits 5 or 4 a few times and then fails. Your result is pretty much similar to what I get with my surface book gen1.

    I would recommend buying from Best buy then. You will have to January 14th for return if so desired.

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    The power issue is a concern, but not that big for me. When i game on this it will only be for short times anyway. What concerns me is that the temps of the processor are getting that high. Even when only a moderate load. That wasn't anything i have seen discussed yet. I could live with it...

    CPU Throttling on 15 inch Surface Book 2 after 1709?

    Yeah I'm thinking I might have a bad one. After trying the latest Windows insider build and then using the recovery image to downgrade back to the 1703 version the results are the same. Even under moderate CPU load it is basically pegged at greater than 95c. What sort of temps are you getting on...

    Solved SP4 high-dpi multi-monitor fix - alternate 3:2 aspect ratio resolutions

    Just tried the version 5 that was released. That has worked fine on mine. Haven't tested gaming with it, but it does have the right resolutions on it.

    Solved SP4 high-dpi multi-monitor fix - alternate 3:2 aspect ratio resolutions

    Sure. I will give that a try later today. The surface book I have is the i7, 16, 512, dGPU model. Thinking the nvidia card could through it off, I installed this and rebooted while it was not on the keyboard base.

    Solved SP4 high-dpi multi-monitor fix - alternate 3:2 aspect ratio resolutions

    I guess it isn't meant to be for the sb. I ran the reg file and restarted and no new resolutions showed up for me. Anyone get this on the sb working

    Alternate 3:2 resolutions

    Thank you so very much. I'm going to go try that as soon as I can.

    Alternate 3:2 resolutions

    Has anyone been able to get this working on the SB. I have tried running the reg file a few times and it hasn't worked for me at all. I have not had one new resolution added yet. Do I need to be running the intel program to get this working? If so, where can I get it?

    Buy keyboard section only?

    Yeah, so far I am doubting this will happen.
