    If you're having 970M then its okay. Otherwise 240W is needed for 980M. There is nothing wrong in asking 240W for 970M. More power will help in case you're OC'ing 970M.

    well I'm not even using the 970M the reason why is I'm not currently needing mobile gaming so I'm using my r17 r3 as a desktop replacement, that being said I'm using the AGA with a 1080 TI

    Can someone else run the Intel tool on their Alienware 17 R3 and share your result? https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27150

    I contacted Alienware support on Twitter, and they told me the R3 shouldn't be affected. They said they "escalated" my case a couple days ago, and have been silent ever since.

    Its affected. When you see 15 r2 in the list obviously 17 r3 uses same BIOS and same hardware.

    That's fine, but can someone run the Intel tool anyway? It would help to have official results.

    I might have to ask Prema for custom BIOS.
