CPU usage going from 2.46 Ghz to 0.4 Ghz , while playing games causing sudden frame drop.

HP Recommended

I'm experiencing sudden frame drops when I play games. On further analysis I realized that it's because the cpu usage goes from 2.46Ghz to 0.4 Ghz. I play while plugged in and at best performance mode. I've already tried solutions available online like bios update,  power plan settings etc. This started happening all of a sudden  2 days ago. Also I've checked  my gpu temperature at the time of fps drops to be around 70-80°C and I think it's pretty normal when u play demanding games. My processor is i5-8250U @ 1.6ghz , 8gb ram and amd r5 m330 2gb graphics.

@Redkindasus 

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

There are many ways to increase FPS and system performance:

  • Update the BIOS.

    For desktop PCs, go to HP Desktop PCs - Updating the BIOS.

    For notebook PCs, go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS

  • Update the graphics driver.

    Go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your PC model, then select the driver for your graphics card.

  • Most games allow you to change the graphics settings. Using a lower graphic quality often improves FPS.

  • Close any applications or programs that are not being used.

  • Turn on Game Mode. Game Mode is a new feature in Windows 10 Creators Update that improves gaming performance by limiting background processes and programs from using system resources while a game is running.

    1. Press the Windows key and G to open the Game bar.

    2. In the game bar, click Settings.

    3. Click the check box next to the game title to enable Game Mode for that game.

      Plug notebook PCs into an AC adapter to give the graphics card more power.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
