    XMP profiles are being used by the BIOS but I think Windows 10 is having trouble with the G.Skill CAS latency. As I said, the HyperX is reported correctly across the board. BIOS shows 3200 for both brands.

    Have anyone tested if the 7730 keyboard can fit into 7710/20?

    A little bit more info:

    The RAM is running at the full 3200 XMP speed, but Windows Task Manager reports the RAM's "Maximum Speed" as reported by SMBIOS Item 17. I've highlighted the 2 values in the attached screenshot from CPU-Z. This is a cosmetic bug in Windows and there are dozens of reports of it online. I'm not too worried, every piece of reporting and benchmarking software I can find shows that the memory is running at 3200MHz.

    FullHD and Intel GPU only.

    Screen is AU Optronics B173HAN01.3 and looks OK to me

    Gents, there have been some important developments in this thread.

    Users @Div033 and @yrekabakery have deduced that the P3200 in the Precision 7530 is probably a Max-Q version (even though it hasn't been labelled as such) with power limits at 67 W, which is even slower than the one in the Lenovo ThinkPad P52.

    I read through the thread, very interesting, and it seems a bit deceptive on Dell's side. Though with a performance hit of just about 2 FPS in the Firestrike test, not the worst thing ever... Still you'd expect a "regular" branded card to perform handily better than a "Max-Q" card.

    We don't have many 7730's out there yet, but did anyone order one with a P3200? I'd be interested to see a GPU-Z snapshot of that one to see if it is the proper "fast" version.

    Borrowing this image from @Div033, who has a 7530 with P3200. So, clearly, 7530 and 7730 have different P3200's.

    Not an expert on benchmarking correctly, but did a quick bench with Aida64 with Hwinfo sensors

    Bear in mind this is a random shot during the bench so not sure on accuracy, again not really experienced at this
