Luckily, I'm all set with a duo of RHB740 directly from Intel. But a 90-ish watt Alan Wake would be nice.
Yeah but that is a wait that is unacceptable considering it is not a technical problem, and it does have benefits in games (for some anyway) even with a discrete GPU.As we know for a longer time 65W GT4e for desktop is coming between Q4-16'-Q2-17'

You ain't seen nothing until you have witnessed a Skylake GT3+EDRAM chip in a 18W configuration trying to play 3D games.I'll have to try that driver out.
I've been playing around with my laptop and tried undervolting. Seems like my processor can't handle the boost clock on the cpu while running the gpu at full speed. Definitely a struggle to get full performance out of these things.
