17 R2, Alienware Docking Station

I was interested in buying a Dell Alienware Echo Series Docking Station - System Bus Extender - 460 Watts
for my Alienware 17 R2 (Early 2015). The BIOS of this laptop is A06, and the notes of next BIOS version A08 indicate the following:
Graphics Amplifier behavior enhancement

Is it essential to update this BIOS to A08 or higher to work properly? The process of updating the BIOS of the laptop is dangerous because it could be bricked.

Hi @otroman,

This will vary depending on the configurations, but with the BIOS you currently have, it should work.
