Asus, can you unlock intel xtu interface in your asus strix g15 with intel 10th gen?

Hello, Asus can you provide a bios update to unlock intel xtu voltage offset? I know that we have voltage offset up to -80mv, but cpu is still thermal throttling when playing demanding games with gpu.
Other companies had provided bios updates with intel xtu interface option to enable it. I know all about plundervolt vulnerability but please, provide the option.
Thank you.

We just have this option in bios. Not enough. Laptop is ASUS ROG STRIX G512LW

Hello Horrifido,
Which model do you have and what temperature do you get under what kind of usage?
Thank you.

Hey , I noticed the same thing on my G731GW , ever since upgrading to BIOS 308 I'm unable to undervolt my 9750H and it leads to some crazy temperatures under stress. (heavy gaming/benchmark)

It used to be maximum 85 and it is now reaching 98. (Happens only when CPU is around 4.2-4.4GHz , used to be fine back when I was able to undervolt with XTU)

Something has to be done about this.

I really don't want to force myself to downgrade to 307.

I have a G732LWS and while gaming I can see temps usually in the 90 degree range with it spiking to 95 all the time. I have see it go once or twice to 99 degrees. I second the request to have the ability to modify settings in XTU, I understand that things have been locked down due to recommendations from Intel, but does that mean all settings need to be locked out? I should be able to disable overclocking and modify other settings that would extend the life of my laptop by lowering the overall heat generated.

The current issue effects undervolting at the kernel level. Has been around since the 6th generation processors but only just recently been uncovered. The moment you undervolt your laptop is the moment you open yourself to the explot.

Asus or any other manufacture can "fix" this issue. It is up to intel to do what they can to come up with the solution but tbh that may not happen until the next generation processors as the problem lies between the processor not getting enough power to complete computation tasks thus opening it to exploitation and data collection.

Thing is , majority of the users just downgrade BIOS , so what's the point of "blocking" undervolt if in fact we can still undervolt by downgrading?

Makes the life of everyone just a little harder , at least they should give us the option to enable or disable it.

And as you said , I doubt Intel is going to do something , at least not anytime soon.

Sorry guys, I've been offline for a while.

My laptopt is a Scar III G531GV and the temperatures have gone from 82ºC to 95ºC in any game, even in not very demanding like the LOL.

The only thing we can do is ask / require Asus to release the BIOS, as other manufacturers have done, in order to make a small Undervolt, since we know that our laptops accept it.

I am seeing similar temps on my G732LWS as well , even in games I wouldn't have called "overtaxing" , to the point I am being to wonder about this "liquid metal " TIM and if it's all it's cracked up to be , so any help will be useful .

My G732LWS doesn't have the Overclocking Tab in the Bios that was/is reported to be there in the 310 Bios either , the Bios on an MSI laptop I had , allowed and advance Bios option which was much more useful , so I'm not sure why Asus can't do something similar?

Dear all,
Thank you so much for your feedback.
All of them have been reported and taken into consideration.

Dear all,
For 10th generation CPU models, we open certain range for users to modify.
This range has been tested and verified, exceeding this range will cause system crash.
So for stable performance and usage, please kindly adjust within the opened range.
Thank you very much.

can you open the same range as well for the 8th Gen CPUs (GL504) latest BIOS versions?
