GTX870M Low FPS Problem


Mar 8, 2016
I have an Aorus x3 that is equipped with a GTX870M, I don't use the laptop for gaming too often, but I noticed when I do, it has a very low fps (around 20 - 30 on games like Dota 2 and Overwatch).

I downloaded GPUZ to monitor the load of the GPU and noticed that the clock speed is always fluctuating between the idle speed and the load speed in addition to having the GPU load fluctuate between 80% and dropping to around 0% after a few seconds and back to 80% again (this basically continues throughout the game).

I would appreciate some help on the matter as I tried setting the games to the lowest settings at 1080 resolution instead of the native 3K and I noticed the same thing, albeit with a higher peak fps of around 80 - 100 before it starts fluctuating again to 20 - 30 fps.

Thanks for the help :)
