    God be with them all and give them strength, bruh. They walking in wonderland and don’t know what they are doing. Their Big boss himself just close his eyes and pray to the same Almighty God and hope that their customers who bought this piece of trash one day will come back when the new refreshed Dell models is out.

    And for some reason Dell is now taking weeks to upload new BIOS updates to LVFS, after they're released on Windows on their website... Every day their service gets even worse and worse. I should have bought a Thinkpad.

    Do you notice a performance hit in game? How does core and memory clock look?

    I'm curious on what the consequence is when running something that would push it 100%

    I didnt notice any clock based changes anywhere. The only change seems to be in the fan curve, into a more "silent" fan curve, resulting in way higher temperatures, for example while gaming. I did not do any Cinebenchs so far if results are the same. Totally have no idea, why they thought this was a good or needed change. The dGPU poll fan trigger issue wasnt changed, totally awesome and incompetent. Fans also spin up randomly all the time for at least 1-2 hours every few minutes or so during modern standby. I love it.

    So that fan polling is still an issue. I cant say I'm surprised, but was hoping.

    I am wondering if they took a page from Apple's playbook and decided to let it run hotter for decreased noise. Letting the fans only go 100% only at the last possible moment.

    Maybe when you stress cpu/gpu more then fans kick in and cool it. You said that they have 50% reserve in speed. It this turns out to be true it is a good situation. Lower noise on lower system load. I believe 250 pages ago people where talking that fans are too loud :) Dell cant make everyone happy.
    Did you noticed random fan kicking in while system idle or very light usage?
    But i think they could at least fix random gpu fan polling...

    I'm guessing he will start a company focusing on BIOS software :D

    Dell may be restructuring; they are at least changing PR firms. Let's hope they aren't trying to market themselves as the Apple of the computer world by soldering everything together.
