    You posted it like 20 times already...

    I'm intrigued by Fedora's performance and energy efficiency, guessing it was on Gnome Wayland. Also, why 28 and not 29?

    OpenSuse "Tumbleweed" has a command to display and modify it's settings per this: https://doc.opensuse.org/documentati...tools.cpupower

    By setting to avoid higher p-states, "Tumbleweed" could be made more competitive - but it would need to be modified back, every time you removed the AC Adapter and needed more battery time. I'm not sure whether multiple 'profiles' could be created and invoked by name.

    I’d find some battery life numbers in comparison to Windows interesting. Browsing the web, playing videos from Netflix etc.

    Phoronix: Six Linux Distributions Benchmarked On The Dell XPS 9380 Laptop

    While Dell is offering the option of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS as the Linux option with their new XPS 9380 laptop, what happens if the Bionic Beaver isn't of interest to you? As part of our testing of the Dell XPS 9380 with Core i7 8565U laptop, I've just finished up testing six different Linux distributions on this 13-inch laptop.
