Change your settings in game. Uber ultra max, even a 4k DSR. Put as much load as possible on the gpu.

If fps drops below that 160-200 mark, there's an issue with the gpu somewhere, either its gimped by physical means, like someone tried altering the vbios, it's overheating, lack of power etc or its gimped by software, like capped fps, badly optimized drivers, interference by windows insisting on newer generic drivers over game optimized files etc.

If fps doesn't really change, the issue is with the cpu. CSGO uses 2 threads. I'd those threads get maxed out, the cpu doesn't use a third, it just maxes out the 2 and ypu become fps capped. Then there's ram and other possibilities like storage.
