FPS during gaming has weakened randomly?

I've tried everything, everything is up to date, blah blah blah. My Alienare 17 is getting poor performance on games that it should be able to run.

Here are three examples.

Overwatch - Even on the lowest graphics preset, the game refuses to stay at 60 fps. Only when the render scale was set to 75% would the game (for the most part) stay on 60 fps. However, this made the game very hard on the eyes and blurry. The game has shown to be capable of running on Epic settings on my laptop, but it has the same FPS drops no matter what the settings are.

Rocket League - Multiple FPS drops during play, at least 1 every 20 seconds.

Mortal Kombat X - Runs 60 FPS for a moment before getting major drops, repeat.

I've dealt with plenty of issues before but I can't seem to solve this one. Cooling is not an issue. I've made sure that the games are using my Nvidia card.

It may be a problem with the individual games. I know I was getting awful fps on battlefield bad company 2 (a game that came out in 2010!) and I had to go into its files and change settings before it worked correctly. Look up fps problems for the individual games and I'm sure you'll find a solution.
