Hi everyone,

I will start with my specs:

Laptop ASUS FX503VM-E4178T

-CPU: i5-7300HQ
-GPU: GTX1060 3GB
-2x8GB RAM 2400MHZ
-1TB SSD SATA3, 128GB SSD M.2
-Win10Home

2 days ago i noticed huge FPS drop when playing Doom Eternal (it was like drop from 60-70FPS to 15-20FPS). I ignored that becouse it was endgame and I thought that it may be just problem with game itself. But then I had same issue when playing Wolcen.

At first, I thought that maybe my CPU was overheating so I undervolted it by -100mv which gave me pretty good results (It was 86C at stress and it dropped to max 70C). But problem still occurs after 2-3 minutes of playing so I assumed that is not problem with CPU.

Ok, so here is what I've already tried and it doesn't helped:
-Undervolting CPU
-Opening and cleaning laptop from dust
-Reinstalling GPU drivers
-Installing different version of GPU drivers
-Updating Windows 10
-Reinstalling whole system
-Installing game on another SSD

I've also installed Afterburn and checked how it looks. I think temperatures are fine - GPU maximum 66C and CPU maximum 70C so i guess it's not overheated. I also noticed that when GPU usage is 99% everything is fine, game goes smooth, but whenever it hits 100%, FPS drops to 20.

I don't know what else can I do :( Any suggestions? Is it possible that my GPU is just broken? It was all fine till now...
