    Phoronix: Ubuntu 19.10 Provides Good Out-Of-The-Box Support For The Dell XPS 7390 Icelake Laptop

    For those not following on Twitter, recently I picked up one of the new Dell XPS 7390 laptops for finally being able to deliver Linux benchmarks from Intel Ice Lake! Yes, it's real and running under Linux! For those eyeing the Dell XPS 7390 with this being the first prominent laptop with Ice Lake, here is a brief look at the initial experience with using Ubuntu 19.10.

    I wonder how I can set up the touchpad as close as possible to windows precision touchpad.

    I've tried blacklisting the module on ubuntu 19.10, still no luck.
    The only distro I have been able to boot, with or without blacklisting the intel_lpss, is Fedora 31. Problem is that the Live distro couldn't see any storage in the system, even after switching to AHCI instead of Raid in the bios.

    Anyone have any insight on this? I'd love to get Linux running on this!

    Thanks, will give it a try. Looks like that kernel may have landed a day after I tried with the Dell TB Dock.

    Damn, I just bought the regular 7390 developer edition. Was a little afraid of the linux support for icelake , really liked the 16:10 screen on this one.

    Sounds like you didn't try thunderbolt? Support for it has been backported from 5.4, so unless there are bugs with this setup it should work.

    Can you test how well the Thunderbolt support works on kernel 5.4? I think the devs would appreciate some feedback and if you find issues it's not too late to open a bug report either.

    Arch Wiki link is broken, it's missing `)` at the end.
