XPS 15 9560 and 9570 low fps / lagging solution

Jump to solution

Hello everyone after several days of research I believe I have found a solution to both the Dell XPS 9560 and 9570 with low FPS and lagging. I have had three XPS laptops. My most recent is the XPS 9570 I did a lot of heavy work on it as I did not play games. After a week or so I wanted to give it a try playing some CS:GO. I immediately noticed the game was unplayable. Frames as low as 5 FPS. I took to the forums looking things up people talking about disabling certain resources and updating the bios I tried it all. I even installed a fresh install of Windows and still nothing. These are the steps I took to have adequate frames in game. Please keep in mind this is not a perfect solution but it allows games to be playable where you can get 60+ frames continuously with no issues. The monitor the XPS has is causing the issue from what I understand.  

#1: I used a separate monitor via HDMI (extend to second screen only)

#2: In Invidia control panel make sure these settings are configured properly under 'Manage 3D settings'

Maximum Prerendered Frames: 1

#3: In game video settings must be set properly. This is critical. I found that in CS:GO certain settings could be set to high while others could not. I eventually set my settings all to medium quality and I had frames well in excess of 60FPS+. Note that even with these adjustments frames will not be steady whatsoever my frames jump from 170 all the way down to 60 in some cases. I am still working on this issue to see if it can be resolved. 

Have any questions please feel free to ask. No this is not a perfect solution but I wanted to share my findings with the community because you can actually use your computer to play games again!

Yeh, I am having the same issues and people have also said its a bios issue. I personally think it might be the components which have a problem because when I bench marked the GPU I got below average ratings. I can have high fps on csgo eg 100+, but it does drop a lot.

It's not a solution but just wanted to show that you are not the only one. My XPS is about 9 months old now.

Yes I have updated the bios and it seems like it has helped a little bit. I don't know if this is normal but it seems like you get stable fps once the gpu has warmed up (eg 5-10 mins) then the fps seems stable.
