Hello!

My problem started to appear about a week ago, prior to that week I've updated windows to 1903. I will list my full specs in the end.

At random times, my gtx 1050 ti just degrades in performance a lot, for example in Fortnite Fps go from 120 to 15-20fps while gpu usage remain at 100% and all other metrics running normally. Even the desktop window manager struggle to run while using high gpu usage! In short, everything graphical related (even windows) starts to struggle. I tried updating my windows and my gpu drivers but I haven't tried to DDU the drivers yet(UPDATE: Just did and the problem just happened again). The problem usually persists until I restart my pc. There's no graphical artifacts whatsoever. Temperature always remain sub 70c.

What could be the problem? Have you ever ran through such experience?

My PC's specifications:

i3-8100
16gb DDR4 Dual 2400Mhz
Zotac Gtx 1050 ti
CoolerMaster 550 watt PSU
1tb WD blue Hdd
Windows 10 1909
