FPS Drops

  1. Hello,

    I have a Razer Blade 15 Advanced. I bought it a year ago. Recently I have been experiencing an issue where I have had persistent FPS drops on games that I used to run with no problem. Elden Ring is one example. After playing for 5 minutes, I will continually hit low FPS points making the game unplayable. My geforce experience is up to date. Can anyone tell me how I can fix this?

    1st thing - I'd check what battery powerplan is set - if it's set to high performance, next thing - check CPU & GPU temperatures under load.
    Also I'd try different GPU drivers (the newest isn't always the best).
     
  3. Thank you for the reply. My battery is on the balanced setting, I have never changed this setting when playing prior. How would I check CPU & GPU temperatures under load?

    Check HWinfo app, then run some game for a while.

    You can also try the steps here for further isolation. If that didn't help, PM me the serial number so I can validate its model and check for other model-specific fixes to address the low FPS issue of your laptop. Thanks!
     
  6. I downloaded the App

    Would you be able to tell me what I should be monitoring to observe the cause of the fps drops?

    Run it in sensor mode:

  8. I think I found the issue possibly.

    This is bad right?

    Yes, because it's throttling the CPU (and maybe GPU, there's no dedicated GPU thermal on the screenshot).
    Open bottom lid, clean fans, apply a new good quality thermal paste (for eg. Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, it's not cheap, but it's really good).
