Solved! Lenovo Y530 suddenly very slow. Continues to be very slow after windows installe.

Sep 21, 2020
I have been working with a couple of people regarding this issue in this thread:

I have been asked to make a new thread. I noticed the problem trying to run a dolphin emulator which normally ran wonderfully. It suddenly started to run terribly. The general user experience is bad and sluggish.

As stated in the title I eventually reinstalled windows (while keeping files if that matters). I ran a couple of userbenchmarks and the results say my computer is running poorly.

second run:

I then used coretemp to test if the processor was getting too hot. With only coretemp running the max temp was about 46c and the utilztion stayed below 10% . Under load (running userbenchmark) it went up to about 49c and multiple cores regularly hit 100% utilization. I don't know if this is an acceptable range.

One observation is the frequency never changed. I don't know if this is expected.

I have been told to update the BIOS, the Intel chipset driver and the Intel Management Engine but I'm not certain what the best way to do this is.

Thank you so much for your help
Personally, I would have updated both. Lenovo should have an update app to let you update their drivers as well. Do you have this installed?
