Gaming PC Desktop (Legion Tower 7i Gen 8) and CLion App Compatibility Issue


Hi Everyone

I hope you're all doing well. I'm reaching out to this wonderful community because I'm facing a bit of a dilemma that's been giving me quite the headache. I recently acquired the Legion Tower 7i Gen 8 gaming PC with an Intel processor and an RTX 4090 graphics card, and I'm having trouble getting it to work smoothly with the CLion application.


I've been using CLion for my programming projects, and it's been my go-to IDE for a while. However, after setting up my new gaming rig, I've noticed that there's some sort of compatibility issue between the Legion Tower 7i Gen 8 gaming desktop and CLion. The application runs significantly slower than expected, and I've even encountered a few crashes while working on my projects. Given the powerful specs of the PC, this situation has me scratching my head.

  • Has anyone else with a Legion Tower 7i Gen 8 (Intel) and an RTX 4090 faced compatibility issues with CLion or other software?
  • Are there any specific settings or configurations you've adjusted to optimize the performance of CLion on high-end gaming PCs?

Thank you so much in advance for your time, help, and expertise

Best regards,
