Intel introduced its new Speed Shift Technology (SST) with the brand new Skylake processors. The last major (1511) Windows 10 update supports SST.
With SST your system gets a performance boost from a few procents up to 40-50% in some scenario's, while power comsumption decreases! Who does not want to have SST?
Sadly SST is nog supported in our i7 XPS 15. It is not implemented. We need a bios upgrade to make it work. Than the XPS 15 becomes from good the great (performance and battery life).
Does Collin-H know if their are plans to implement SST?
When will Dell be updating the XPS 15 9550 BIOS to support Intel Speed Shift Technology?
This is a major power saving feature which increases responsiveness of CPU speed adjustments.
