Question My laptop gpu ( rx560x ) suddenly started under performing since the last two days.

Dec 31, 2020
i have a acer nitro 5 with ryzen 2500u and rx560x with 1 TB HDD and 8 GB RAM. it happened a couple of days ago. my minecraft fps dropped from 60 to 20. so i decided to run userbenchmark and this happened. i dont know how but the core drive benchmarks are running on D: and not the C: partition

also these fps used to be around 80-100 fps now giving only 20-30 fps


please help :(

A have the same Laptop and my humble advices are:

1- Upgrade your RAM to 16gb at least

2- Reinstall drivers, downloading from AMD website. Let it choose what's best, and on install Ignore the extra package apps they offer

3- Disable those useless ASUS apps and services. I only use Armoury Crate, and that's it.

4- last, but not least...Usually clean the rear and under air entrances with a soft brush( FOR REAL, they pile too much dirty stuff under it and even my cooling base doesn't avoid it.)

Hope it helps!
