I face an issue where during my gaming session for Counter-Strike:Global Offensive, the fps keeps fluctuating rapidly until the movement of mouse or keyboard is felt sluggish. My current setting for CS:GO is all Medium with 4xMSAA. I'm getting around 120-150fps when standing ans sometimes may drop to 70-80 fps when moving, shooting ongoing. I've tried put everything auto (high/very high/8xMSAA) but still similar things happened. I tried to put window border-less or full-screen but it doesn't make any changes.
I've tried running other games (i.e. GTA V or Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege) on high but I could get constant fps of 60.
And I've also realized that my processor GHz will not automatically change mode from balanced to high performance. Even though during in game, the power plan will still stay at balanced. I need to swap from sport to comfort and back to sport only the power plan will move to high performance and GHz increases to 3-3.25/3.5 GHz where CPU is at the same time at 70-90% during gaming. After my gaming ends (only task manager opens with other background apps running), it will still stay high performance with high GHz from processor but CPU percentage at 10-20%. Only after I change it back to comfort then it will return to balanced power plan and GHz drops to 1-2.4.
I don't think it should be HDD problem as only CPU facing spike. HDD stays calm at max 10%.
Thus, should my laptop be behaving like this or there's some issue? Since I'm new towards gaming specifications, I'm not sure whether it should be like this.
Looking forward for the help. In the meantime I'll check the keyboard for issues.
Besides that, I think my keyboard is splashed with rain drops but I'm not sure whether inside is affected or not. I've checked my monitor or speaker but they don't have water stain. I don't think this will contribute to the issue but yeah.
