    I used what the computer had installed out of the box.

    As it fulfills my expectations I don't even plan to upgrade.
    Downloaded the newer bios and even the EC update - but I'm afraid that after the updates the UV values will not work like before.

    -250mV Core and -110mV Cache UV is amazing, don't want to lose it for any stupid reason which I cannot revert later.

    2W Package TDP on base clock (2,3GHz) is almost nothing, the computer is cold ;)
    This is what I wanted. A cold and silent computer for everyday tasks (web/Youtube).
    Connected via the TB3 cable - powered by the TB docking station. Ideal.
    And still capable of some powerful gaming or computing if necessary.

    Has anybody figured out how to disable nvidia GFX in BIOS on 2020 models? Need to disable to use as an ultra book/ long battery life. Optimus sucks

    Had no chance to try the battery usage time yet, but as you can see limiting the Processor to 99% in windows power management gives very low processor usage - 2-20W package.
    This eliminates the turbo, so CPU runs around 2,3GHz stock speed.

    Also possible to lock the multiplier to a lower number and that also should reduce power usage.

    Found this:https://insider.razer.com/index.php?threads/razer-blade-performance-configuring.20960/
    Maybe it helps selecting the GPU per application.

    Or simply disable the Nvidia GPU. Maybe that also works.

    Heard from somebody, that using i9 on 1200Mhz and gets 5,5 hours on an Alienware 17" 4K beast from battery. ;)

    So our Razer with 80Wh should last for 10 hours after such a settings ;)

    Mine is totally silent, totally cold - only lukewarm at the SSD. Around 40 Celsius according to HW monitors. Mine runs from a TB3 docking station, no power brick connected.

    None of those work. I need to be able to select IGFX in the BIOS to actually turn off PEG0 which the nvidia gfx lives on. Otherwise there is always power going to the GPU

    In Amibcp5 under the Chipset you can find options for Graphics related hidden menus.
    Most probably you can find the necessary switch there.

    ThrottleStop does not write anything to the BIOS and it does not write anything to the Windows registry. It only writes the voltage information directly to the CPU voltage control register.

    It is up to the BIOS to reset this CPU register during a restart. During a fast restart, this might not get done.

    To fully reset your CPU, hold down the Shift key on the keyboard and then select the Windows Shut down menu option. This should reset your CPU to default voltage values. No need to pull the CMOS battery.

    Time to upgrade to TS 9.3. It has a few new features for the 10th Gen CPUs. The FIVR window now includes access to the Thermal Velocity Boost and V-Max Stress features. Clearing these boxes allows the CPU to run a little faster when fully loaded. :)

    Limit Reasons has also been updated for the 10th Gen CPUs.

    And if you put it to SG and in the SG menu you select only the IGFX?

    Reverts back to SG. There is logic there that needs to be defeated/broken.
