Constant FPS drops

2017-03-13, 14:58 PM

Hi.

 

So last year I bought a Lenovo G50-80 laptop. I know it's not necessarily a gaming laptop, but with an i7 processor and a dedicated AMD card it should be able to handle a lot of games. Anyway, the only two games I currently play are Paladins and League of Legends. They both used to work fine, keeping at above 60 FPS until recently, when it keeps going in a series of 90-50-25 fps constatly. I've tried everything that has to do with software. Some more info lower.

 

Is it overheating? Is it a GPU overheat? I'm not very technical myself so. Help?

Probably you GPU/CPU is overheating, causing thermal throttling to protect the circuits. I would recommend cleaning the air vents from dust and if you feel confident, reapplying thermal paste, because it may be dried out. Be sure not to apply too much thermal paste though.

Yes, I got it cleaned and it immediately jumped to over 100 fps. The thing is, it didn't last long. Now I'm at 75 fps. But its constant. I use a cooler to keep it at a good temperature.

If your system is overheating constantly, there is a way to reduce that.

 

Go to Control Panel > Power Options

Click on the current active plan (Balanced / High performance..)

Then, click on Change Advanced power settings.

Under Processor power management set the MAX PROCESSOR STATE to 92% on both battery and Plugged in.

Save the settings. Restart and you should be all set.

 

The processor should not overheat after this and the performance loss wont be noticeable at all.

If you have other USB devices plugged in, try removing them while using the camera. Also try using CCleaner to remove junk files and clean up registry entries.

Try closing any running processes that are not active.
