Laptop performance issue

So I bought this brand new laptop on January 10 if I'm not mistaken, it's an ASUS TUF A15 with ryzen 7 4800H + RTX 3050 + 8gb 3200hz single channel ram. I mostly do work on it and play just one day, Apex Legends. On the first few days it was okay, I was getting an average FPS of 84 on low settings (which btw is what I was on on my old laptop) but now, all of a sudden it dropped to 40FPS. I've had plans on buying an additional RAM but it wasn't really a problem to me at the moment because I was getting a good amount of frames compared to my old laptop. I've done all the troubleshootings I could and still got the same low FPS. What should I do?

Single channel ram is a HUGE performance loss. Upping your RAM to Dual Channel will increase your Performance a significant amount. Have you checked to make sure you're not out of System memory since you do work on it? 8gb is super easy to fill up with just a tab or chrome or 2 open and game play.

Check temperature while gaming with HWinfo64. Let it run while you game. Open the program after launching the game to get a better readout. After you can check clocks and temps

So I've played on it with brave browser open before this happened and it was running fine. The fps drop started 2 days ago. But I'll let you know if when I get my hands on additional ram

Apart from what has been said already this is probably just the laptop settling in and you installing software and such. Which means the standard ram usage has been slowly creeping up and now you are most likely at the limit of the 8gb and it's having to put a lot in swap.

So here' the temps and clocks. I don't know how to read these btw. I'm not that techy of a person.

My GPu is only reacing a peak of 53%, but I'll try and get an additional ram is the next few days. It's a struggle just to get upgrades because of COVID

The expected overheating in the tuf is happening which sucks and will impact gameplay (the tuf is actually a quite crappy laptop) but otherwise nothing major going on.
