I don't see a dedicated video card in that model.

This is the rather famous APU based PC. The memory for the graphics is shared so complaints like this are common.

If it's software a factory restore will fix it. But this is a common complaint that I answer with "install a real video card."

What sentence wasn't clear?

And sure, you can try the warranty but gaming performances are a touchy area. That is, they may set the game to low settings and charge you for doing that.

Take the side panel off and test your games.

If no help point a small fan at the innards..test.

If that apu is getting too hot it will throttle.

Install a temp monitor prog and watch the temps.
