    It may be that your games are running on the dedicated GPU and not on the discrete Nvidia GPU. So do this

    1. Go to the Nvidia control center and under manage 3d settings/Preferred Graphics processor set to your Nvidia GPU then under the Program Settings tab select the programs and games that you want to run on the Nvidia GPU/High Performance

    2. Make sure Windows is set to high performance and you game with your battery charged to 100% BEFORE gaming and KEEP plugged in while gaming

    I had the nvidia settings as you recommended. How do I set the highest windows performance? I tried to clean my computer, updated card components, and there are still drops. I was also surprised by the point about keeping the laptop on a 100% battery. I look forward to clarification and further advice.

    Modern gaming laptops cannot reach 100% performance unless the battery is at 100% AND plugged in, battery alone does not have enough power to allow the CPU and GPU to operate at High Performance consistently so to preserve battery power the CPU is throttled back 50% when on battery alone.
    For High performance go to Nitrosense and set the High Power and also go to Settings and do the same, screenshots below
