Yo.In the past three months i noticed random fps drops that didnt happen before,and i realized that my CPU usage is extremely high whenever the drops happen (like 80-100).

I dont think that there is a CPU bottleneck or throttling.Also my laptop is a year old.

My specs are:GPU-Geforce gtx 1060 6gb

CPU-Intel core i7-8750H

OS:windows 10

Any type of help would help at this point cause gaming became unbearable.

I don't think that there is a CPU bottleneck or throttling.

When running at default specs, all laptops with 8750H CPUs are designed to power limit throttle. The 45W TDP limit is not enough to get full performance out of this CPU. If the power limits are left unlocked, these CPUs will run faster but they will likely overheat and thermal throttle. Most laptops use a combination of these two throttling methods.

The 8750H was first released almost 3 years ago. Your laptop might be older than you realize. For consistent performance, gaming oriented laptops need regular maintenance. Opening your laptop up to blow the dust and dirt out of the heatsink and fan are the minimum amount of maintenance one should be doing. Many enthusiasts also replace the thermal paste between the heatsink and CPU / GPU.

 

For high CPU usage problems, when idle, open the Resource Monitor and organize your running tasks by CPU usage. Do you see anything near the top of that list that is using up too many CPU cycles? What antivirus program are you using? Some programs are terrible and end up putting a lot of unnecessary load on a computer which can interfere with smooth game play.

 

Try running Cinebench R20.

In a properly functioning laptop, an 8750H can score over 3000 points in this test. Many laptops fall far short in this benchmark.

Well I do maintain my laptop pretty well,also I tried running Cinebench and I only got a score of 2178.

Oh and about the Resource Monitor,the only thing that is near the top is the game that  I play,lets set apex legends as an example,it tends to go up to 90% which isnt normal as far as i know
