1.2.2 verios is the one with 78C limit not the 1.3.0 (which has 74/75 limit).

Odd that it wasn't noticed until 1.3.1.  Anyway Dell only has a couple of weeks to make this right before I return my laptop.

I don't think they will fix this one. I believe they intentionally did this and they don't care about technical customers.

Re: XPS 9570 bring back the 78C GPU set-point

I have an amateur question. What happen if I restore my XPS 9570 to factory settings or to an earlier copy of my system, will the BIOS also return to its factory setting version / earlier copy version?

I'm asking this because it seems that BIOS 1.2.2 doesn't have this problem, an the one that I'm having:

Resetting your system to factory settings or restoring windows will not change your bios version.

Dell closed my case and was happy to report my issue was resolved?  What?  No it was not resolved.

Dell doesn't seem to really care about the GPU issues with the 9570:

Well I ordered a Lenovo X1 Extreme that will take 2 weeks to ship out to me.  If Dell can't fix the bios by then I'm going to return it.

New bios is out but it doesn't fix any of the issues with the GPU.  Way to go Dell.
