    My computer very suddenly started getting low framerates for no apparent reason.

    My computer which could once get 60 fps in games like The Witcher 3 and Rainbow Six Siege very suddenly started to drop frames left and right for no apparent reason. And it happens with all games no matter the settings or resolution. Any help would be much appreciated.
