    hahaha. The 9570 performs as Dell intended.

    In plain English, that means in the 9570, one should expect both the Intel and nVidia chips WILL significantly underperform their respective marketing specs.

    If you have any doubts, there are thousands of posts for reference here for the similar 9550, 9560, and 9570.

    Good.

    Then you can let us know if the XPS can handle Overwatch (or not) as we are all sitting here with baited breath waiting for the answer! :p

    Ok now it's a month since your initial post so I'm pretty positive that you already did the job and played overwatch
    Still you gave no feedback on the thermal fix advice and on the nb capability
    So I registered here (!) from Russia (!!) and I'm kindly asking you to close the topic for the sake of the hole planet at least by saying if it manages overwatch on minimal settings cause it's a disaster otherwise
    Also if anyone knows why the crappy non-gaming xps 9570 is brilliant on Western Gents United video

    Thx

    My brief comments on the XPS 9570... Had 1 with the i7 8750H and returned due to constantly crashing within hours of receiving it. Also thermal issues.
    Had 1 i9, returned it for the same reasons as the i7. Had another i9, while rather stable after resolving some Win 10 issues, ran very hot and thermal throttled. This one also went back to Dell and was the nail in the coffin for me.

    I believe Dell did what Apple ended up doing with the new MBP 18 and just threw in a faster processor without engineering proper cooling. The 4k display was superb, and the build seemed nice. However, this laptop had way too many instability issues and with a price tag of almost $3k should not have the thermal crippling.

    Haha sorry for the late reply, I've been still testing, adjusting my Dell XPS 15, and I came to the conclusion that "yes, you can get 144fps on Overwatch with XPS 15", but it's a long process." Like every XPS 15, you gotta change the thermal compound and apply thermal pads on VRM, as well as undervolt both the CPU and the GPU. (I also underclocked the cpu for more stable performance) Then, you gotta delete "intel dynamic platform and thermal framework" to prevent premature throttling. After all this process, yes, I am finally getting stable 144fps on Overwatch.

    Are you able to use G-Sync with an external monitor without an eGPU? I have a S2417DG which is almost identical to your S2716DG only slightly smaller. You game a 1920x1080 and not 2560x1440 right?
