My Ryzen 5 2600x is playing up, would anyone be able to help me?

I have had my pc for a year and i have a Ryzen 5 2600x processor inside it. It has been running great for a long time but just the other day i noticed that i have had a bit of a frame drop in the games i usually play, for example i usually get 300-400fps on minecraft but now im getting 150-60fps and they are sudden drops in fps. I also noticed a frame drop in another game i opened up which is doom eternal, i usually get 90fps on max settings but now im getitng 50-60fps. I thought this may have been the drivers but i updated them all and this problem still occurs, i also tried cleaning my computer but this did not do anything either. I ended up installing a computer monitoring application and what i found was that the cpu cores were jumping from around 2100 MHz all the way to 4200 MHz in quick jumps. I will attach a video below as a demonstration. Does anyone know why this would be happening?

Thanks In advance!
