  1. Announced: April 19, 2022 Release date (RTO): July 7, 2022 12th gen Alder Lake CPUs NVIDIA Ampere refresh GPUs, up to RTX A5500 GeForce RTX 3080 Ti option also available (through sales rep only in most territories) Up to 128 GB DDR5 non-ECC memory (via CAMM module), or 64 GB DDR5 ECC or non-ECC (via SODIMM) All NVMe slots support PCIe4 Full driver support for Windows 10 & Windows 11 Spec sheet: Precision 7670 • Precision 7770 Driver RSS feeds: Precision 7670 • Precision 7770 Pre-release thread (NBT) Pre-release thread (NBR) ———————————————————————— Opportunities for performance improvement Here, I am collecting some information from the first several pages of this thread to hopefully make it easier to find in one spot. If you received a Precision 7770 with the heatsink that contains Delta fans, have Dell replace the heatsink and hopefully you get the one with Sunon fans, which performs better. (Unfortunately, you must remove the heatsink to check and see which fans you have.) See this post by @MyPC8MyBrain for suggestions for reinstalling the heatsink. The Delta fan heatsink will thermal throttle out of the box. Repasting can eliminate the thermal throttle, so that you can use ThrottleStop to raise PL2 and increase performance of the CPU. Perhaps the biggest CPU performance gain that can be had is by fixing the IA AC/DC loadline values, which are set incorrectly on this system. Visit this guide and look at steps 5-7 for directions on how to get to an environment where you can edit some EFI variables. These commands will correct the IA AC/DC loadline values (thanks @win32asmguy). I got a ≈20% boost in the 10-minute Cinebench score from fixing these... setup_var CpuSetup 0x132 0xAA # set IA AC LoadLine LSB to 170 (1.7mOhms) setup_var CpuSetup 0x133 0x0 # set IA AC LoadLine MSB to 0 And these commands will enable overclocking/undervolting, if you wish to mess with that: setup_var CpuSetup 0x10E 0x0 # Overclocking Unlock setup_var CpuSetup 0x43 0x0 # CFG Unlock Additional tuning with ThrottleStop (undervolting, etc.) can further improve performance. @MyPC8MyBrain has some settings in this post.
  2. Information in this opening post is kept up to date with the latest developments. Alder Lake HX CPUs ("Intel 7" process / 55W base TDP / up to 8P+8E) NVIDIA Ampere refresh workstation GPUs (RTX A5500 at the top; GA103S chip with 7,424 CUDA cores; 16GB vRAM; similar performance to GeForce 3080 Ti mobile version) DDR5 support — up to 128GB (non-ECC) via CAMM, or up to 64GB (ECC or non-ECC) via SODIMM PCIe4 support in all NVMe slots Four NVMe slots in Precision 7770; three in Precision 7670 performance chassis; two in Precision 7670 thin chassis Chassis refresh 7670: 16" 16:10 7770: 17" 16:9 Release date (available to order): July 7, 2022 (now available) CPUs: 4P+8E: Core i5-12600HX 8P+8E: Core i7-12800HX, i7-12850HX, i9-12900HX, i9-12950HX No Xeon CPUs. Select Core CPUs support ECC memory. Note as of 2022-05-18: 12800HX and 12900HX might be pulled from the lineup. 2022-05-27: 12800HX and 12900HX have been removed from the spec sheet.

  3. I'm a believer in letting information flow to you, and not having to go and seek it out. In light of this... I'm scraping the Dell support/driver pages and using it to create an RSS feed. If you use a feed reader and one of these systems, you can use the feed to be informed of when new drivers drop. The feeds also include BIOS updates and some Dell software application updates. Right now I'm only grabbing drivers for Windows 10 and 11 (no Linux or older versions of Windows). If there are any other systems that you'd like to see a feed for, let me know and I will add it to the list.

  4. If you come across any particularly interesting posts with technical details, part numbers, fixes, or how-tos, let me know and I will include them on this list. Many of these link back to the Notebook Review forum, which is going offline on January 31. I will change the links to point to the NBR Precision archive once I have it ready.
