    FYI 1070 comes with 240W psu. And 240W PSU can pull +260W from the wall. Similarly as well can 330W go far above 400w. Both Acer and Asus BGA models have similar behavior like AW. Ask AW ceo Mr. Azor or Umar why this happen in their FB or Twitter account.

    Edit: You could test OCCT or Wprime 1024M stress test and Heaven benchmark test simultaneously with maximum charged battery over a longer period.

    Got it. I've already tweeted to AlienwareSupport. I am thinking I will tag Azor Frank too now. Thanks!

    @Papusan, from @iunlock 's findings (thanks to him) on the ASUS GTX 1080 7820HK powered machine also the battery drains 5%, because of the higher TDP GPU + OCed 45x HK BGA CPU pulling past the 330W powerdraw which I think that these machines (ASUS / AW) have the restricted Hardpower cap on the Motherboard like that Alienware 18 which can't take proper 2x330W PSUs (<400W only with 2x330W) unlike the M18x R2 or the Clevo counterparts which can draw more power, 600W+ any day (Plus as we know the 330W PSU can supply more than 330W). So these machines might be draining from battery LOL !! :eek::rolleyes:

    AW is worst because it has this powergimp hybrid battery from 1070 and other parameter conditions too. Also from iUnlock's findings from the 775DM3 review that machine can handle 46x with a 6700K + 1080 without any power gimp from the battery with a single 330W PSU..

    So there we have the BGA machines ;) :rolleyes: vs the LGA/Socketed :cool:

    AW17R4 Kaby Lake's new target goal:

    [​IMG]

    What this will prove. Can the AW17R4 handle the battle when it comes to pressing the peddle to the metal? Sure there is an element of the silicon lottery, but aside to that, with 2xCPU+2xGPU chips of the Asus and AW that are pretty close, that can hold similar clocks...the question is, can AW remain standing or will it fall?

    This boils down to software and the integrity of the machine... The AW17R4 Kaby will say a lot....very highly anticipated, even more so now that we have a base to go off of, Asus G701VI.

    Same problem for the AzerBook with 1080 as well. Yeah, something nasty. As expected. I and @Mr. Fox pushed +425W with the older single 980 + single 330W in bench. There is a reason the engineers for the different brands want to cripple their BGA models. Because the PSU used is more than powerful enough.

    It did not help. Every time the graphics card is heated above 73 degrees the system becomes unstable. Where can I download previous VBIOS?

    If other don't have problems with same vBios, you should look after if you have another problem.

    Before update VBIOS a notebook worked stable. It can not be rolled back?
