Check your Windows power settings and make sure you are on a performance plan and not a battery saver plan. Check your temps while gaming or benching and make sure they are getting too high. Your clock speeds will throttle if the laptop gets too hot.

Go into safe mode and use DDU to install drivers - then go back to normal mode - reinstall drivers and see what happens.

I don't have battery saver plan enabled. And I don't have hight temps because my GPU memory clock never increase from 405.

Contact alienware, use their drivers straight from website, if you are using afterburner or another overclocking suite restore all settings to default.

Clean your system of dust totally.
