Somewhat looks like thermal throttling. Check on temperatures to make sure it's not hitting 90+C. If they are, you might need to replace the thermal paste or get a laptop cooling pad. If it isn't, look into a program called ThrottleStop, it tricks the laptop into not thermal throttling.

Its either thermal throttling or some power saving thing...

 

Would maybe be useful for people knowing what laptop this is and full specs,  in order to help more.

 

But then again,  it seems to be hitting 100% usage regularly... there might not be a fix for this 

 

 

 

What's been running while this ss was taken?

My Nvidia GPU undervolt tutorial  !
