I've got a Dell Inspiron 15 7577 with 8GB DDR4 2400mhz ram, i7 7700 hq, gtx 1050 ti, windows on an m.2 ssd and game on same ssd.

While playing minecraft at 120FPS I lag spiked every 5 minutes or so making the game unplayable for 15 seconds. I checked task manager to see if thermal throttling was the issue, but GPU temp was constant 80C and it was at 15% usage. When the lag spike happened GPU usage went down to 0 percent and integrated graphics went up to 100%. I completely reinstalled my drivers and GeForce experience. This made my problem even worse, now I can't run smooth 60 fps without lag spiking hard. I am sure the program defaults to using my GPU.
