    Just got my 9570 - it looks like SpeedShift is now supported, there is a section in the BIOS with "Enable Intel Speed Shift Technology". Also in hwInfo64, SST is green.

    Great!

    What BIOS are you running on the 9570?

    I think you set EPP in Windows>Control Panel> Power options. That EPP dropdown might not be available; if so you can enable it manually.

    EPP=0 for max performance
    EPP= 100% (or maybe 255) for max battery life
    EPP = 50% (or maybe 128) for typical use per Intel
    EPP ~33% (or maybe 70) for a balance which allows you to hit max turbo clocks when needed. You will need to find this point yourself
