I recently bought a new laptop:

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 15 (2021) Gaming Laptop, 15.6" 300Hz IPS Type FHD, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX, 16GB DDR4, 1TB NVMe SSD, Opti-Mechanical Per-Key RGB Keyboard, Windows 10 Home, G533QS-DS96

And I noticed that when I play videos (windows media player), games (any), or even when I watch YouTube videos, occasionally the framerate will drop for a few seconds and the sound gets crunchy (like paulstretching or playing a video at 0.5x speed). In addition, after about an hour of use, this behavior stops, and things run normally, though it did lock up completely the other day playing a YouTube video. I updated my drivers, but I can't seem to find what could be causing this. Does anyone have any ideas?
