Ok... so i have this new laptop. I'm getting huge fps drops after few minutes when i'm playing a game... i've tried anything... i've disabled hyperthreading , intel turbo boost , even undervolting my cpu.. nothing works.With an i5 8300H , 1050 Ti , and 8gb ram i thought that i could run gta v , BF 1 , PUBG with no problems...

Thank your for your time.

Welcome to PCHF ZahaLeV,

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.

In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.

Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

Power Profile
Active power scheme: Balanced

Change the Windows Power Plan to High Performance, your discrete GTX 1050 Ti needs this and the notebook to be powering the notebook, the notebook will revert to the Intel HD video and poor game play as a consequence.

Your Speccy report shows that the Windows Power Plan is set as Balanced.

The CPU is not brilliant but it is ok when Turbo kicks in and it is only the base speed that lets it down.

Speccy says that you have 8GB of RAM but reports nothing else about it, is the RAM a single 8GB stick or is it two Xs 4GB sticks.

Can I ask that you do not quote every reply, it really does not help any and just makes for unnecessary reading, thanks.

No worries, it just that we have to read every reply which can be time consuming and ultimately helps nobody.

Your CPU is adequate but you do need to add a second stick of compatible RAM as the single stick is causing a bottleneck.

You could leave the Power Plan set to Balanced while only the 8GB RAM is present, one you have two 8GB sticks you should 100% change the Power Plan to High Performance.

use the Crucial system scanner tool to see what RAM is suggested, no need to purchase from there just make sure that you get RAM that matches the specs there
