I use a Lenovo 14APH8 (Ideapad Pro 5) which is essentially the same system specification. Pretty brilliant laptop but the drivers have been struggling until this year, finally! Especially with high DPI, high refresh rate screens where memory corruption is easier to run into.

Brilliant post by the way. I've just spotted that Smokeless UMAF which might help alleviate the issue I've noticed on my laptop which is Lenovo giving me 28GB of RAM but only 1GB of DMA Buffer. Absolutely bullshit when my Steamdeck runs fine with 4GB and barely touches the swapfile. I wonder if this'll let me get the true 780M performance I yearn for!

EDIT: Hell yeah UMA buffer override lets fuckin GOOOOO

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
