So, when I game on my laptop I recently noticed that I get a lot of sudden frame drops. When I open the task managers the game runs between 15 and 20% CPU usage. And because of it being a laptop, the game only gets 5 fps. After approximately 20 seconds or so the CPU usage goes up again, and with it the FPS. This happens frequently on a 2-3 minute interval. So what is the cause for the low CPU usage? I have put the games on a higher priority in task manager and have monitored the cpu temps with core temp. When gaming I get below 60C (usually around 58C) with a MIN temp of 40 and MAX temp of 87. My idle temperature is 40.

Help would be greatly appreciated!
