Hello. In 2018 i got a new laptop with a Radeon 520 and has been working fine in casual games like CS:GO. Last summer i reinstalled my Windows and I saw that sometimes in more demanding games, the fps just dropped a lot for around 10-20 seconds, but I thought it was normal and I didn't give it any importance. Now, I started playing CS:GO again, and the same thing happened here. I made some research and I found out that the GPU was overheating. It gets to 90 degrees very fast, after about 5 minutes of playing, but a year ago when I played CS:GO, that never happened. The laptop doesn't get very hot, it doesn't burn my hand or anything, and the CPU temperatures are ok, only the GPU gets very hot, and I don't know why. I don't recall this happening before I reinstalled my Windows. Could it be a software problem? Any reply would help me, thanks!
