I first noticed this problem with Mechwarrior Online. I assumed it was a problem with that game, but none of the fixes mentioned made any difference for very long.
I recently (last couple weeks) noticed the problem in other games as well.
Problem is this: I will start with fully playable FPS (usually in the 40-60 range) then, with some regularity, my framerate will drop down to the 5-15 range, which in FPS games like MWO, makes the game pretty much unplayable. My FPS will stay low for about 15-30 seconds, then pop back up to playable levels again for a short time. This phenomena has started occuring in every game I play with a 3D component, from Arkham City to Minecraft.
I used a monitor and noticed that there was a correlation between these FPS drops and my GPU load plummeting from nearly 100%, which I would expect with a full screen game with detailed graphics on a slightly older card, to as little as 0% in the logs. I don't know why the load drops like this, but the load drop coincides with the card temp going over 90 celsius. I can only assume there is a temperature related throttle somewhere.
Any ideas on how to fix this? I only have the laptop to game on right now and no chance of buying anything better for at least a year.
Nazgulgnome said:Update: I'm pretty sure that my GPU is throttling due to heat, it gets up to 93 degrees and my framerates drop. I have cranked up the laptop's fan and set it on a cooling plate and dropped the GPU temp to 59-60 Celsius while idle, which kind of concerns me. I think my laptop is either not able to cool enough, or there is something wrong inside the case that's blocking heat transfer. Ideas?
