When I play DOTA2 (idk about other games) I get random fps drops for a while. From 60 to 5 or maybe even 1! I've checked the usage of both the integrated graphics and the dedicated graphics while gaming and when the game's running smoothly the dedicated gpu is high load, and the integrated graphics have no load. However the fps drops randomly for varying periods of time. Checking back on task manager during these fps drops, the integrated graphics take the load and the dedicated graphics have little to no load. I'm not sure what the problem is.

My system is a Asus K556U
Intel i7 7500U
GeForce 940MX

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
