    Recently my Macbook Pro had ran into a weird issue concerning frame rate drops while gaming in Bootcamp or Mac. Whenever I start any games (It occurs on any games), it runs smooth until the temperature of my computer rises, at that point there will be several seconds of frame rate drops every few seconds.
    The weird thing is, my GPU temperature is only around 70 Celsius, and the issue only got worse after I cleaned out the dust in my Macbook Pro. I tried resetting SMC, but no difference had been made, also reinstalling my Mac and Bootcamp partition . The issue appeared only recently out of nowhere, even on games that ran smooth before, it feels like that my processing power dropped all of a sudden.
    I would want to know if anyone had ran into this form of issue before, and if there is any way to solve it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like it's throttling the CPU back.

    Install a utility to report the temperatures back on the CPU and GPU. If the ambient temperatures are higher then it'll throttle sooner.
