How are the thermals of this device? Any thermal throttling here?

All the Ryzens seem to have throttling issues. Worth having a Google.

For example, it drops down to 400Mhz here for no apparent reason despite being under load:

That's interesting, haven't heard of that issue before. Is that widespread?

I was more talking about the many Ryzen notebooks with horrible cooling. I had an HP 14 with a Ryzen 5 but that one throttled heavily after only a few seconds of load due to thermal constraints.

Reviews for the IdeaPad 330 also talk about horrible cooling, but I thought that the cooling of the 330S in this deal might be better.

Problems with Ryzen throttling across numerous manufacturers - Lenovo, HP, Dell etc. I don't think it's just a cooling issue. Have a Google.
Ryzen and comedy TN display? Think I'll spend another £150 on something twice as good.

It's an IPS screen


It's TN according to the review and Lenovo website.
Laptop does appear to have an IPS rather than TN panel screen. Search for this exact model number in the Lenovo PDF product guide below - 81FB0047UK. I've updated the description to clarify this.
