Yes overheating will damage any silicon component... but you probably have an exhaust port clogged up, check it. You also might have malware, so that's something else to look into but it's probably the exhaust so I would check that first.

Constant very high temperatures can definitely damage every component of a computer, especially in a laptop where things are sandwiched together paired up with often inadequate cooling systems. Generally overheating damage over time will show graphic artifacts, programs will crash etc, not just a decrease in FPS.

Things to check:

Your GPU temperature, CPU temperature

Check for updated drivers for both your platform (chipset) and GPU.

Does the ventilation system really seem to be working hard/ high fan speeds?

Are any intake / exhaust ports of the cooling system blocked at all or possibly clogged with dust on the interior?
