Dell XPS 15 9570 temperatures not named anymore
#1
Hey,

not sure when this happened, mostly around one of the last bios updates, but HwInfo doesnt show the EC temperature values anymore with coresponding names

now:

before:

So not sure if the order is still the same.

Yes, that's certainly due to a BIOS update as the BIOS is responsible for providing the sensor values.
If you attach the HWiNFO Debug File I will have a look at that.

Well, indeed. It looks like the last BIOS doesn't provide information about temperature meanings anymore.
I'm sorry I can't do anything here, this lies in DELL's hands...

Hmpf... I will ask at Dell then about this, but I doubt they are interested in changing this back. I also noticed the SMART information says "Drive Temperature" and "Drive Temperature 2", is this also due to the Bios/EC, or is this always named like that or by the specific drive?

I too doubt they will change that or provide some clarification. The interface used to provide these values is very secret.
Drive Temperature is independent from that. If it's a NVMe drive, the first value is most probably the media a second the controller temperature.
