Hey there, I read your problem and I wonder if you are playing without plugging in your charger if so your fps won't be good it's better if you plug it in while playing a game or so and put the power plan as high performance.
To do that follow the following steps -
1. Look at your bottom left screen you will see a white icon which looks like a battery,
2. After that right click the icon and choose power options,
3. Then you'll see that there are thinks called Choose or customize a power plan,
4. Then, try to find High performance it maybe in hide additional plans.
5. And thats it.
By The Way: If you do high performance your batter will run out quicker when it is not pluged in. But I recomend you to plug it in.

A very interesting topic I haven't spotted earlier!
I can say that @rockykoston's comment is very much on point in that you have to be very careful with the settings. I don't game a lot but the two demanding games I played on this laptop, GTA V and The Witcher 3, are both manageable in full HD, although just one wrong setting can make them unplayable:
PC game settings are somewhat future-proof, which is generally good. It means even high-end devices at the time of the game's release cannot handle everything maxed out but if/when you revisit the game a couple of years later, you'll be able to play with even better graphics than what was originally possible. Unfortunately this also means you have to spend some time initially tweaking the settings, the performance impact of which is often unclear.
Overall I'd say, this laptop is decent for gaming but you can't expect miracles. The biggest disappointment is the BIOS with features disabled, next to no customization, and lack of updates, and this of course relates to the issues of thermal throttling and fan control, which could have been addressed this way too. This product could have been so much better at nearly no extra per-unit cost to Lenovo, talk about a missed opportunity. However, hardware-wise, it's mostly fine.
Some technical points:
