I own a 2018 Dell G7 model
specs-
i7-8750H
gtx 1060 maxq 6GB
16 gigs of ram
Whenever i play a game, for example GTA V, at the begining the fps is all good and i get around 45-50 fps but then suddenly my fps goes down to 10-12 fps
for about 10-15 seconds and then the fps goes back to normal. So as usual i ran MSI afterburner and checked the temps and it was normal, like 77°C on the GPU and around 75-78°C on the CPU... but when the fps drop happens, my GPU clock speed goes to around 600MHz and the GPU usage hits 100%. Since MSI afterburner doesnt show the voltage count for the GPU, i switched to HWinfo.
Initally my GPU power was around 40-45W. But slowly it started reducing to 35W and 30W and when the power touched 26W, the fps drop began and after 10-15 seconds the power went back to 45W and my fps was back to normal.
Pls help me fix this because i dont know what to do.
