    Based on what we saw with the redesigned cooling solution for the 9370, is it worth waiting for an update of the 9570? Or is the existing cooling solution sufficient with undervolting and repasting etc?

    I would tentatively say that it's actually okay as long as you are familiar with TS, undervolting, and using custom TS profiles to keep temps down. The 9370 actually cools worse than the 9360 in some ways, and I am concerned that a future XPS 15 update will take this approach as well (my conversation with dell's engineering team suggests that they are targeting quieter operation with newer XPS models with an apple-like strategy of allowing overheating). The 9370's fan sensor is located outside of the GORE thermal insulation, so the CPU hits 99C and throttles long before the fan sensor realizes it. This is by their design.

    Where are the processor power options in the energy preferences (control panel)? I only have options for Diashow - energy saving - power button - monitor - battery.

    Very insightful information. Makes me feel a bit better that I pulled the trigger on the 9570.
    I still believe that Dell is gonna wait for the 10nm chips from Intel to propose a new model.
    Anyway... we'll see.

    My Haswell PC is still on Win 10 1709 - whole options are available.

    So if you can still adjust CPU in the advanced power plan options, what are you looking for?

    I was looking for these options in the XPS, but it seems MS changed the power plans with Vers. 1803. I didn't knew that.

    1. You can enable SpeedShift for good processor power management. For the 9570, there is a toggle in the BIOS to enable. Then you can simply adjust Intel "Energy Performance Preference" (EPP) to favour "performance" (0) or "energy savings" (255 or 100%).

    It is better to have the CPU controlling processor power than have Windows do this.

    2. You can Download "Dell Command I Power Manager" and choose one of four schemes which proport to adjust processor & fan schemes from "ultra performance" to "quiet".
