    That's interesting... My GPU-Z shows 941MHz default and 967MHz in "boost" mode, do you know why that'd be?

    The biggest issue I'm having is that a lot of my programs don't understand the resolution, so they don't show up looking very well, and generally show up smaller than I want them too.
    Working with it, trying to figure out the best way to fix/deal with it.

    Maybe I'm not understanding a setting or something but it's a bit strange.

    To those people who have had their trackpad decolored: have you considered using any kind of product in order to make it even? If so, which one would be appropriate?

    To those people who still haven't had their trackpad decolored: have you considered applying any kind of protector, like those commonly used for LCDs of phones, cameras, etc?

    HWinfo reports max clock @1058MHz, I wonder which software is correct.
    Can you try to monitor you Gpu clock while something is running on GT750m?

    I've downloaded HWiNFO but can't find the GT 750M clock...

    I'll try to run some tests with GPU-Z later today.

    About the touchpad discoloration, hate to break it to you but this is old news with Dell. My XPS 1530 touchpad did this constantly, while having to be replaced several times due to the mouse buttons not retaining their "click". Considering this was almost a decade ago, I can't see how Dell hasn't improved on it.

    You must run something on GPU before to launch HWinfo.
    Moreover you have to watch sensor status.

    What you can do is apply a screen protector on it that's what I did with my other brand laptop to make it a smooth surface cause it was a little rough ,
    Its also protect it,works just fine
    I know its not suppose to discolor dell needs to fix it!
    What you can do
