hello guys

AS you know the Xiaomi air 13 has a Geforce MX150 card  , and you have 2 types of the MX150
1 . "10DE 1D10"  
GPU 1.469  mhz
2 . "10DE 1D12"
GPU 937 mhz

and i did cheak mine (2017 model)  and it has unfortunately the slow one also the "10DE 1D12"

you can find out which typ you have with this software
TechPowerUP GPU-Z

so i think the MX150 in xiaomi and hp are not the same !

Unfortunately You are right! There are at least two different MX150 models which differ by TDP (power) and clocks. It's probably due to the poor cooling of Mi Air 13, because it would not handle the thermals of more powerful model. It is pity that nvidia did not rebrand those chips, because many users will buy Mi Air 13 expecting full performance from MX150, however they would become disappointed by performance and frequency throttling Xiaomi thumbs down for this!!!
Here is an article regarding this issues, it is translated from Czech language:

For what it's worth, I've found that the 1D12 MX150 in my 2018 Mi Notebook Air 13" will generally maintain a stable boost of about 1350 - 1400MHz while gaming, with the temperature holding steady at around 72 degrees, max. Additionally, in some games (notably Killing Floor 2 from my testing..) the system will actually maintain a boost of about 1650MHz on the MX150 core clock, throughout the session. This might be due to low load on the CPU, giving the MX150 greater thermal and power draw headroom to work with.

In either case, I wouldn't be particularly concerned about this. From my understanding, the 1D12 version of the MX150 is the same device with a lower base core frequency clock to accomodate a lower TDP. It's got the same number of Shader Cores, Raster Operators and Texture Mapping Units as it's higher TDP brother, it's just generally intended to operate at lower frequencies to accomodate the less capable cooling and lower-rated power supplies of smaller form-factor laptops/ultrabooks.

It is same HW, however with significantly lower frequencies and thus speed! Just compare it with MX150 installed in Xiaomi Air PRO, it is significantly faster. Also why is Xiaomi limiting max temperatures to 75C? It is stupid because this silicon can handle up to 90-100C, so you are loosing performance here also (compared to non-throttling 90C configuration). I personally feel cheated, because I bought notebook with MX150 and not CRIPPLED MX150. Shame on you Xiaomi!
