Choppy frame rate

Hi guys noob and Alienware newcomer here . I have the m17xr4 with an AMD7970 inside,. When I'm playing a game such as dayz it can be running fine at between 40-50 fps then all of a sudden it just chops down to 20 or less for a split second then jumps back to 40-50fps, anybody else experience this?.

Cheers guys

Don't take Dell's word for it that it's all up to date. When I originally bought my M17x R3 I was having huge problems with BF3 crashing constantly. I soon realized that my driver version was 9 months old. A quick update soon fixed it. I'm not great with AMD but if you Google AMD drivers it should take you to the right place.
