CPU or GPU issue ?

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Hello . Its my first thread here . Thanks in advance for the help you will contribute to solve my issue.

SO , I'm playing Dota2 . I play the game first 10 minutes very fine maintaining a fps 50 - 60.

But , the issue , my fps will go to 35-45 after some time . So guys , I want to start finding out what's causing that fps drop , its very annoying , and it is not expected . Simple question , how should I know if my problem is caused by my CPU usage or temps , Or GPU usage or temps.

My specs are :

System Model HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC
OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home Single Language
Version 10.0.10586 Build 10586
System Type x64-based PC
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHz, 2401 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB

Name NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M
Adapter RAM (2,147,483,648) bytes

Name Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, Intel Corporation compatible


I run my games using the NVidia GeForce and not the integrated graphic card.

More than likely you're thermal throttling.
When was the last time that you dusted the internals of that laptop?

You can use GPU-Z to log your graphics card temps and compare the clock rates.
HWMon can give a min/max/current of your temps.

Its a notebook. So i'll agree on it being tempertures and the cpu or gpu throttling or both throttling

Hello. Thanks for the reply. My laptop is 1 year old so i dont think im having problems with dust.
Yes , thermal throttling , but what should i be monitoring to know if my cpu or gpu is causing the throttling first , it is expected that both clocks will be down when i reach that temp . But , i want to know the origin , if its cpu i can do something for it using ThrottleStop.exe , but if it is my gpu , i can do nothing abt in editing the temps since it is locked in bios . Again, check my specs please

yes , what can i do abt it ?

Laptops are built to be running throttling and overheat with low work tasks.

If you want more performance Desktop is the only way to go

So , i can do nothing abt it ? This is a bad answer bro

No, you cannot do anything about it.

Unless you rip the laptop appart to get a aftermarket cooler or water cooling. which is not easy to do

Edit: If were using a mod to stopp throttling.
The cpu and gpu will degrade slowly, life span will also decreace greatly and plorbems will occur.

It might not be the answer you want, that doesnt make it a bad answer. I know you said the laptop is only a year old but dust can certainly build up in a year, definitely clean it out. A cooling pad might help too but at the end of the day, laptops run hot (especially while gaming) and will typically throttle. Desktop is the way to go.
