    am I the only one here whose dGPU doesn't trip constantly (on 1.7)?
    And before the pitchforks come out, I have standby issues, crackling issues (fixed with modded drivers), replaced wifi with intel and undervolted, I had the 48 degree dGPU throttle in 1.6, so yeah I'm in the same boat LOL.

    Nope. Mine doesn't either however I have it virtually "unplugged" using linux, and fans never turn on. What I do experience is sound distortion as if the speakers were loose vibrating against the metal chase, which makes a horrible noise even at medium volume.

    Isn't the real problem here people thinking the XPS15 to be a gaming laptop? Or rather Dell for making people believe that by pretending it to be in marketing etc.

    @improwise Well, if there is a 1050 ti in there, you want to be able to use it, right? Otherwise no need to put it in there. No one expects the performance of e.g. A GTX 1060, insane overclock capabilities etc, but you should be able to use the hardware you are buying.

    Yes, you """are""".

    ...

    Nope. I knew before what the 1050ti can do and what not, otherwise I had not bought this laptop. I use it for mild games, where the dGPU never goes over 66°C, encoding and CUDA libs for deep learning programs.

    So I just got an email back from the Dell "engineer":
    "We have received an update from product group team. There are no plans on releasing a BIOS with the GPU throttling at 78C again."

    I told him that was not an acceptable answer so we will see. I'm glad I sold my XPS now...

    Oh wow! That's REALLY upsetting if that is 100% true.

    Yeah I was fairly shocked about it. I will say my response was probably less than nice. It really is not acceptable though. And if it's really the case then I will make sure that everyone knows about it.

    Can't a manufacturer get somehow sued for this? They're technically decreasing your machines performance without previous update. They should get somehow in trouble for this.
