Hi there, Zava -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


You can also try turning off the adaptive power settings in the Amd control panel. Also you may want to look at your cpu usage while playing a game and see if the cpu usage spikes with framerate drops. And see if your games are using all of your video memory.


Your problem might be similar to these threads:

Lenovo Y50 Performance Is a Joke, Any help? 


When the machine heats up, it's likely that the clock rate of the CPU/GPU throttles down to stabilize the system which may explain the FPS drop during games.

Update us how it goes.
