    The NVIDIA drivers won't change the GPU throttle set point, that's controlled by the GPU bios. Are you running the 200W GPU bios?

    Mine does not show thermal limits for this tab?

    Fan Profile? Full Fans but certain Games like Rage 2 hit 78-79 and drop to 500mhz, If i set a limit of 77 it throttles a few hundred but not 90% to where it is unplayable.

    Yes 200w vbios.

    want me to load 180 and see if anything changes?

    Now we just need someone with 1.5.0 and earlier to post their GPU-Z throttle set points.

    You can, but I would keep the 200w and go back to 1.5.0 system bios to see if that changes anything.

    Can't go back to 1.5.0 that's not an option any longer.

    So yeah it looks like 1.5.4 introduces a GPU throttle Set Point at 75C, just like they did to the XPS 9570. I'm hoping downgrading from 1.5.4 to 1.5.0 fixes that, then there would be a way to resolve it (at least for a while).
