Graphics appear to drop back to software rendering

Hi,

My laptop has had an issue from I think the start of October, unfortunately I can't exactly remember which date. At first all seems fine but within random amount of time varying from 5 minutes to an hour or more the graphics drawng will suddenly lose any smoothness and become very choppy. Watching Netflix or YouTube is impossible but it is not limited to video playback, Intellij redrawing is clearly affected. It is as if I have only selected software rending and the only way to fix it is a restart. I am having trouble nailing down what is causing the issue so I am open to suggestions on how to diagnose the issue,

What I do notice that in the system logs I see a lot of the following:

What version is fedora? what kernel version are you running? Make sure that all your drivers are the most recent.

is onyx a custom kernel I have not used or seen it in the update? have you tried a different kernel?
