Random game FPS drops (Core i5)
I'm playing source engine based games on an HP 2191 US. It's got an i5, with the Intell 3000 video chipset. It's got plenty of power for the games, and plays them fine. However, after I'm in game for a bit, it just randomly gets hit by a massive slowdown, which even full restarts will not fix. What in the world is going on here? Can anyone shed some light on this please? Is it something to do with the i5's power stepping?
