    Just ran back to back benches on The Division 2 on Ultra at 1440p with BIOS 1.3.1 and 1.3.2

    Overall, doesn't seem to have changed much, score improved slightly with 1.3.2 but the CPU was also used a bit more with 1.3.2. The interesting thing is the temps. On 1.3.1 the CPU hit 74 and GPU 71 and then with 1.3.2 the CPU hit 65 and GPU 68... weird, especially with the CPU being utilized more with 1.3.2.

    Both tests were run with CPU at 5ghz and -75 undervolt and GPU at 120/200 through Alienware CC. 9700k/2080.

    Yes I have the LG Phillips however it did not score well in terms of contrast in notebookcheck review. However I do like like I have to say but love to see the 2 panels next to each other ..

    Wait....what?! Lol they better send out a global recall notice. I dont think us finding out about something like this via this forum is enough to go by. My Alienware 51m has been chugging through just fine but I also probably don't push it to the limits of a lot of people. And I'm not about to send it off for one whole month. Ain't nobody got time for that! That's what I paid the big warranty bucks for...they can come to my house and fix the issue

    But Azor said on Twitter there isn't a hardware problem:rolleyes: A firmware fix will come. Openness has its price.

    Just stating what I have been told. A correction is required on most of the motherboards, so there is a shortage on them.
    Doesn't sound like a firmware update to me.

    I don't know anymore. I'm just extremely disappointed in the fact that I won't be without my system for 1 more month at least.

    Soooo what you are saying is that I am technically screwed and not getting an Area 51m until late April-Early May. I had mine delayed from March 25-28 to now April 4-11. I can't conceive that being that I ordered after your issue and after they have isolated (or so they say) what the problem is I will be getting this unit. It seems they just keep putting undeliverable estimates to keep people from canceling so when they delay you AGAIN it feels like just another week or so.

    The burnt part is the gpu dgff VRM. Why are they recalling the motherboard and cpu? Doesn't make any sense. If anything they should recall the dgff gpu.
