Insane stuttering in fortnite performance mode

So I have an intel iris xe laptop with 8gb ram and an ssd. When I first got the laptop, I was able to get 120 fps straight on performance mode. After a while, I decided to play in dx12 with 70 fps straight. Kinda got bored of the fps and changed back to performance mode. Weridly, the game starts stuttering all of a sudden. If I point the camera to the ground, the stuttering completely stops and I see my fps go to whopping 200s. On bringing it slowly to a normal view, the fps starts drastically going up and down with the horrible stuttering at it's best. In any case, it doesn't occur in dx12 (the stuttering). Maybe it's a rendering issue with the driver?

 

Here are some videos of other people testing the game out:

a) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zb7dRvTiurU dx12. It's stuttering because graphics are at high

b)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cX9UTBmuUns No stutters here and you can see the fps at 100.

c)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CruS9jsDSpo&t=32s Fps goes up and then BOOM it goes down. See what I mean?

d) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6s35M6rNII8 last one.

So no updates on this issue since 2022!?
That’s lame Intel for a big company not fixing problems that people have with your graphic chips..

How hard can it be to say if there is a possible fix or not!?

I saw this info on another forum:
So basically, when Fortnite went with Chapter 4, they started using Unreal Engine 5.1 instead of Unreal Engine 5 which uses a thingy called shader model 6. If your graphics card's shader model is something below 6 then you cant play on DirectX 12.
