XPS 15 9550 poor fps and gaming perfomance

Hey.

I am experiencing issues with my laptop (xps15 9550) when playing games, in a particular game the laptop's specs should be more than enough to run the game smoothly. I will post the minimum requirements for the game i am playing:

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4430
  • CPU SPEED: Info
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • OS: Windows 7/8.1 64-bit
  • VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or AMD R9 270X
  • PIXEL SHADER: 5.0
  • VERTEX SHADER: 5.0
  • SOUND CARD: DirectX®-compatible
  • FREE DISK SPACE: 16 GB
  • DEDICATED VIDEO RAM: 2048 MB

Everything checks out, i have installed all the dell updates and drivers and done everything i can. BUT when i enter the game, it's running really smooth with 50-60 fps on lower settings, it continues to do this for a while (usually 2-10 mins) and then the fps drops, and the rendering becomes horrendous. I am thinking it's maybe overheating or something like that? I go from 50-70 fps to 20-30 from one moment to another.

 

Hope you can help, i have been doing the "fixes" you've given out to others with the same problem. But it doesn't fix my problem.
