Helios 300 Isn't running games properly anymore?

ToastFTW0ToastFTW0 Posts: 1Member Newbie
Hi I bought a new Predator Helios 300 and it was running everything properly but after a day, when I tried to run the games that I normally tried to run I experienced horrible and drastic frame drops, for example, I wwas able to play Rust at 70-90 FPS on High Settings but now it struggles to run at 13-20 and I get 20 fps on ultra while playing Rainbow Six Siege. Did I get a bad card or some kind of driver problem occur? I have optimized settings (even my laptop believes I should be able to play all these games at extremely high settings in NVidia) and also even updated drivers. I always have my laptop plugged in as well.


GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB
CPU: i7-7700HQ 2.8 GHz
