Bios options in Kaby Lake laptop

Hello everybody,
I recently got a laptop Dell XPS 9360, which means it is the same as the old XPS with a Kaby Lake 7500u processor. I would like to mildly undervolt the CPU/iGPU to run the laptop as quiet as possible. So far, I was only able to change voltage via software, e.g. using Intel XTU. However, I could not find any voltage or clock option in the bios. I always have laptops from my job, so it is the first time in a long while that I can actually access bios on my laptop, and I remember well the good old days when one could change these parameters directly at bios. Now, either I am dumb and I am not able to access some 'advanced' options in bios, or just Dell closed this possibility. Has anybody tried to change voltage or clock in a recent XPS (say skylake or kaby lake)? Do you have such an option in your bios? In any case, do you have any suggestion about permanently undervolting without software?

I somehow dislike the software option, not to mention that XTU is very unclear about for instance when and what custom profile it applies after boot.

Thank you for any help
Ci.Pa.
