    I am experiencing an issue with smooth dimming with Tobii.
    Yesterday I just updated BIOS to 1.7.2 (Support Assist did this automatically) and UHD drivers.
    Now I see that when I am loosing a gaze - screen is dimming down with shuttering - not smoothly like it was previously.
    The same when I am coming back to my screen - it is dimming up but again not smoothly....

    Anyone has this issue and can help with it?

    DELL are coming out to replace M/B onsite. Hopefully that resolves the issue.

    So I accidentally updated to the latest bios on my m15 r3 and luckily can still undervolt. Will a windows update cause me not to be able to undervolt anymore or is that only done through bios updates?

    Hey man, thanks again for helping me figure out the shunt mod for my laptop. I'm the same user on Reddit. FWIW, here's the results I was able to get...

    That's pretty good.
    On par with 3070 Max-p cards granted those are disappointing

    Is it yours? I've been eyeing the Scar 15 w/ 3080 and shunt modding that one up to ~150-160.

    I'd get the GE66 for max shunting performance. You'll want to get a 280w ac adapter, and the Scar 15/17 only goes up to a 240w adapter.

    That and the GE66 has better gpu side cooling and the ability to disable optimus for higher performance.
