Bios A06 added support for the Quad Core Yorkfield 9300/9450 but not the 9550.
That is fine Chris but this don't make it an urgent update. 95% of us will most likely never update to one of those chips anyway. Urgent should mean you need this NOW to keep your computer working right. Dell needs to get their head out of the sand, the sky is NOT falling and get their termonology right.

Nice , this processor upgrade possibility ( although QX9650 not there yet as in my XPS420 ) .
For me would have been much nicer the sound problem being resolved and that would have been an urgent upgrade . ( am using vista32 and onboard sigmahell sound and when upgrading the 2x 8600 GTS ( as the XPS720 came with ) into 2 x 8800 GT ( bought at dell to be sure nothing goes wrong ) , get clicks and distorted sound now , am in meantime again editing video ( with sound ) on my medions.
Well thats nice but still leaves us out in the dark as to overclocking..no way am i going to use that crummy ntune program..
We got the Good processors support
No lets open the bios to take full advantage.
This would really add some life to the 720 platform..
