Things I've tested which haven't made a difference:

* Copy /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xorg.conf to

* Running with the drm-intel-next kernel

Also verified that xenial still doesn't exhibit any issues by booting a
live image, so it isn't an hw issue.

  [Dell XPS 13 9343] Sceen periodically scrambles then returns to normal

Status in xserver-xorg-video-intel package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since upgrading to yakkety on this machine I see frequent instances of
  the screen "scrambling," for lack of a better work. What I mean is
  that for a split second things appear at the wrong location on the
  screeen, as though the video has lost sync temporarily. Then it
  returns to normal. It happens frequently but not on a regular interval
  - I'd estimate anywhere between 5 and 30 seconds between occurrences
  in general.

  I'm running a 4.8 kernel from the canonical-kernel-team ppa right now,
  but I don't think this is a kernel problem, or at least not wholly a
  kernel problem, because it also happens with 4.4 kernels (though it
  seems less frequent with 4.4). This didn't happen at all with xenial.
