Hi,
Since yesterday i'm experiencing a problem while playing my games: fps drop from around 60 to around 20 every minute or so, stay there for some secs and then return to normal. Never had this problem before, i'm playing with this laptop from december.
I've monitored cpu and memory usage but i don't see any difference when i have 20 or 60 fps.
Can I do something to give you further informations?

Edit: I updated my graphic drivers from nvidia website after i noticed this problem

Try rolling back to the previous version you were using, if it started after the drivers it's most likely it was them.
This should help:

I've had similar happenings before.
It can often be some process in the background causing a fluctuation in fps.
Maybe your anti-virus software, or even some routine task which is trying to run at the same time?
