Hi,

I've been having some severe FPS issues with my xps 15; I struggle to play games, an example being fortnite. I've been trying to play in the lowest graphics possible with a resolution of 1080p. For a few minutes it jumps around 70-90FPS, and then it dips after that to anything from 20-50 FPS. I tried lowering the resolution to 720p and there was no change in FPS. I've updated my BIOS, the drivers, made sure the 960M is being used instead of the integrated graphics. I'm not sure what else to do. Thanks, David

Could be the graphics card, chip in your case. That's the problem with laptops you can't or near impossible to change the graphics card like in a PC. Hope all goes well.

Thermal throttling could be the cause of that. Use your favourite temperature monitoring software to see what the CPU and GPU temperatures are before and during game play.

@Secretsquirrel it jumps up to around 83 degrees Celsius... Looking on the internet I think that is normal
