Owners of the late-2015 Dell XPS 13 (9350) or XPS 15 (9550) — both rocking the new Intel Core i Skylake processors — will want to head to the Dell Drivers page to grab a few small updates.

First up is the Dell XPS 13 (9350), which is picking up BIOS version 1.2.3 up from the previous 1.1.9 release a few weeks back. This update is listed as optional and not a critical one, so you could skip it.

Changes include:

  • Support Vpro Windows 7 OS
  • Support Dell BME Dock

Additionally, there is a firmware update for the Thunderbolt 3 USB port, which you will want to grab. Dell uses full spec'd USB 3.1 Type-C ports on all their devices for display out as well as data transfer and even optionally powering the system.

Dell has also released a few driver updates for the late-2015 XPS 15 (9550) with InfinityDisplay. Those drivers include:

  • Intel 100 Series Chipset Driver
  • Intel Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework Driver
  • Realtek USB GBE Ethernet Controller Driver

Most of those are just maintenance and small improvements, but they're still listed as 'Recommended' for your laptop.

Have you picked up either Dell Ultrabook for your daily work? Let us know what you think.

Next week, we'll be featuring both the new XPS 13 and XPS 15 for reviews and later today you can look forward to a hands-on with the new Dell Venue 8 Pro (5855) with Full HD display, LTE and more!

Thanks, Mark B., for the tip!
