Legion Go Update 11.24.23

Hello Friends,

Wanted to provide a quick update today just to keep the Friday updates going.

Our R&D team has been working hard on releasing a new BIOS with a lot of the fixes and updates you're looking for.  They just finished working on v28 last night and have released to our quality assurance team.  Now the challenge is balancing speed of release with quality testing, which for something like a BIOS update we can't compromise on. So, we're going to (tentatively) plan to have this out within the next 14 days if possible.  Again, will likely hit our China support site first and once I see it there I'll give you all a heads up though something tells me one of you will beat me to it.

Some notes on the new BIOS (v28):

  • Adding STAMP/STT thermal mode switch
    • STT (default) mode, APU power will auto increase when surface temperate is under the specified limit
    • STAMP mode, APU power will strictly follow the system settings
  • Adding an option to switch memory frequency between 6400Mhz and 7500Mhz
  • Adding Charging Speed Optimization option, users will be able to select charging speed under high loads (know a lot of you were asking about this)
  • USB-C compatibility option to support more USB high-power devices
  • Adding 6GB VRAM option (still working on Auto, wont be available in this version)
  • Support for Lenovo fan table tuning interface (if I am understanding this correctly, I believe this is just a way for the Space team to have access to the Fan settings, to support our plan for custom Fan curves in the December-end version of Space)
  • Support for Lenovo sPPT/fPPT tuning
  • Fixing some performance issues (don't have too many details on what that means, will ask)
  • Fix for custom VRAM settings somtimes not taking effect
  • Will also include the SD reader fixes from v26
  • And lastly, my personal favorite, "Other fixes".

Again we're trying to strike a balance here between speed and quality and will try to get this out to you as soon as humanly possible which will hopefully be within the next 2 weeks as long as our quality testing does not unearth any additional needed fixes.  This should be a pretty significant and robust update to the BIOS so looking forward to getting it to you soon.

Thanks,

Ben

  • Unpopular idea but hear me out. What if you (Lenovo) partner with the REWASD to bring support to the Legion Go and embed a version of it into Legion Space to achieve the "basic " and the "advance mapping" which includes the stick response and dead zone configuration and later if we want to, we can get the other "premium" features buying them directly from REWASD.

    I believe it will be a Win-Win-Win situation, you (Lenovo) cut the time to market and offload some of the developer so they can focus in other areas, we get the features we are asking for and REWASD makes some money and provides some support to the controllers.

  • Handheld Companion already does all this. They did in a week what Lenovo failed to do in a month. Everything works except controller gyros and that is because there is a firmware issue there that only Lenovo can solve. They fixed the deadzones too. Handheld Companion will release for free in about 2 weeks or so.

  •   I tried it out and it made games perform slower by 10 to 20 FPS... Also I tried out another LegionSpace alternativ call ProjectSBC or so and it also made the games slower in a similiar way... Also through those my system became unstable unluckily...

    Better stick with the LegionSpace, even though until now it is like the unwanted brother Stuck out tongue closed eyes. But it is the best one for performance and system stability.

  • turn off core isolation in windows. this causes the slow downs with HC. the only real issue with HC is the intermittent crashes on resolution change.

  • What is this Core isolation usually used for? Do you know that?
