Sometimes while playing, for example. Valorant and League of Legends my laptop drops FPS rapidly.

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So, when I play games all of sudden and out of no where the game drops FPS. My FPS can be 120 to 150 and all of sudden it drops to 1 to 12 FPS. It continues for few seconds and then turns to normal, and back down. It ruins the gaming experience. I have tried EVERYTHING to obtimize my AMD radeon settings to the gaming experience, I set the game to high priority and high performance. I set the game's graphics setting to low. It doesnt change a thing. I can not find the problem at all and it is making me crazy.

Your cpu may be throttling down due to thermals. I suggest you try locking the frame rates to 90 and test the same.... Remember you don't lock it once it starts to lag it should be locked from when game starts.... You may experiment with different framerates and find your perfect spot.... Mine can do like 200+ on valorant but drops to 50s at times even though I'm on a desktop with a beefy cooler. I lock it at 120 and give my CPU some headroom and now I can play at 120fps constant even during jet and raze ults! (valorant is only cpu intensive)
