  1. If it's fine for the first few minutes, it's likely thermal throttling due to the laptop overheating.

    I seriously doubt you can run any modern game on the 4k resolution your laptop provides, simply because it's not powerful enough to really do that, most desktops aren't.

    Trying setting the resolution to 1080p.

    It's possible it could be your hard drive as well, the 5400RPM part can actually affect gameplay, and only 8gbs of SSD space really isn't enough to speed up something like GTA:5 and the fact it's always switching the data that's on their with your most recently frequently used programs.
  2. That laptop has some strange specs. I don't know what they were thinking trying to pair a UHD display with a 960M. That GPU is seriously underpowered for that resolution, which is probably why you are getting low framerates.

    I would suggest that you change the resolution in games to 1920x1080. You will get much higher framerates that way. It's an integer scaling factor to fit on the screen as well, so you avoid messy upscaling problems.
  3. no, no, no :D I dont play on 4K. I play on 1920x1080 but I still have low FPS on both games.
