    Model: Dell XPS 15 9560
    Processor: Intel Core i7-7700HQ 2.8GHz
    RAM: 16Gb DDR4
    GPU: GTX1050 (Intel HD630 Integrated)
    OS: Windows 10

    So this has been an issue with my PC pretty much since I got it back in September however has just recently gotten so bad that it can't be ignored. When running a large program such as Counter Strike or Rocket League the game will run fine at around 190fps/150fps respectively however shortly after will drop to an apparent '60fps' however it is extremely laggy and looks more like 10. This occasionally will fix itself for around a minute then break again. Recently though it will not fix and the whole computer system will lag until the application is closed. It will then take up to 5 minutes for the PC to run normally again.

    At first I thought it was a thermal issue but have downloaded multiple PC monitoring programs and found this not to be the case. CPU and GPU sit at around 70C / 60C. I have reinstalled and updated drivers including the integrated graphics driver and have factory reset my PC 3 times. Nothing seems to work.

    I think it very unlikely you will make any progress
    Maybe you found out after buying the laptop last September and experiencing the problems, that the laptop itself is so thin, that the cooling system is quite insufficient for the GTX1050
    Many reports have been made both on the Dell forums - just two examples
    and other forums
    see this

    In view of the perceived recent increased problems with low fps I recommend you contact DELL asap as of course you are close to the one year warranty

    It may be worthwhile you trying this
    Nvidia Control Panel and change the “Maximum pre-rendered frames” value to “2”.

    However I really do advise contact with Dell
