XPS 13 9370 4K mode slow scroll with HD images and videos


I'm using 9370 in 4k mode. The problem that I experience is that when scrolling hi-res images and videos it is very slow. I was expecting a smooth scroll for a hi-end notebook like this.

I looked for a solution all over and I read that it's a 'common issue' and it remains unsolved. I've updated all the drivers and even tried Intel drivers. It improved a bit but the issue remains.

If I switch to HD resolution the issue is solved but some sites show awful fonts (e.g.: news.ycombinator.com) so I kept it in 4k but hating this notebook.

I was in between this notebook and a Mac Book Pro and I bought this one since I've been buying Dell notebooks for 20 years. If I don't get an answer on this I'll buy a Mac Book Pro and get rid of Dell forever.

Hello Dell, are you there???

Answer from Dell 'no issue':

I understand your callout, Pablo but as the system is working fine in HD resolution this is not a hardware issue. You may get in touch with our advanced software support team on 1-800-288-4410 for further assistance.

It's sad Dell, very sad.

Thank you for your message. I apologize for the inconvenience caused. I will be glad to investigate this & assist you within my support boundaries.


How long have you been having this issue? Did the scroll option work better earlier?


What is the graphics driver & BIOS version installed?


Does this happen irrespective of the AC adapter being connected or not? Have you tried changing the power option to performance mode when using 4K?
