    Ah, the reason I assumed that you were concerned about DPC is that I thought you were the same person who posted this: https://twitter.com/azorfrank/status/1044479012389703680?lang=da

    Sorry about that. As you say, I imagine nothing has changed, too.

    I am not the same person. My concern is mainly with the GPU and sleep functionality of the laptop. Neither of which were fixed...

    You'll only get them to change making junk like this IMHO if you either stop buying them or send it back and complain about its technical issues.

    I returned my 9570 and I'm still on the lookout for a decent replacement model, but holding onto my wonga until something able to do what its meant to properly appears!

    The whole 'thin but really powerful' design isn't working out as planned for Dell is it?

    I think the XPS Skylake platform which covers the 9550, 9560 & 9570 has some engineering flaws that can't be fixed until Dell completely reengineers the platform. Timing depends partly on Intel as I don't see Dell making big changes until necessary.

    So, the XPS will continue with some issues, including audio, latency, sleep, heat, power, throttling, etc. I got most of these "largely" sorted on the 9550. The 9560 and 9570 suffer from more serious power requirements so they are further behind the ball as far as I am concerned.

    Generally these are nice laptops for everyday internet surfing and light office use, if you are able to sort out the driver problems and thermal paste problems on your own. XPS will not deliver full spec on CPU or GPU so gaming and aggressive video editing are not realistic expectations (despite specs marketed by the 8750h and 1050ti).

    Now I installed it too, and it changed my screen calibration to ugly.

    Happened to me too... I just installed 1.6.0 and after Windows reboot, the colors now are in too vibrant mode. This was before easily fixable, by going into Intel GPU settings and ticked the "Color Accuracy" checkbox... but the option is now GONE after the bios update. How can that be related to the bios update?? Weirdly also my DPI setting was reset to default 250% after the bios update.

    The Dell Power Manager App isnt working now anymore too with the latest service update: https://www.dell.com/support/home/u...2&osCode=WT64A&productCode=xps-15-9570-laptop

    Install the older 3.0 version from dell to get that fixed. Seems the new version is missing a module which it requires or something like that

    Probably figured why I can't play cs go anymore, or anything for that matter and why I dropped from 250 fps down to 70.

    I get 430 in Cinebench when you are supposed to get something between 1000-1200 haha

    My XPS is power throttling. Before, a month ago I could play pubg and hit 99 degrees, now it won't go higher than 64 and the max watt usage is around 15-18. Far from the spec. 45W TDP...

    So something somehwere is holding it back.

    Dell power manager is set to performance and adaptive on the battery charge.

    Any ideas? In idle Throttlestop "limit reasons" screams in red "EDP other" under ring. And red "PL 1" for core and yellow "PL 1" for GPU.

    What Windows settings do you have for that performance bar? CS GO is running like crap on everything these days it seems, 500 fps and you still get input lag when trying to throw a nade in a crowded place :D
