I have a Alienware 15 with a 4170HQ I7, 16 Gig of Ram, and 4gig 970 GTX video card with graphics amplifier. I get massive FPS drops in games, going from 95-100 to 50ish randomly for no reason. This happens on multiple games.

Within the last few months, games with advanced 3D graphics that used to run with perfect smoothness have now slowed down to 6-7 frames per second, and I'm convinced that… (Show more)
