Check temps while playing.


It may be temps, but would it make sense for temps to be higher for the laptop when its 2 years older, even though it's doing the exact same thing?


Yes. Thermal adhesive can wear out, dust can clog fans, and chips can become less efficient/run hotter over time.

+1

Check temps, make sure it isn't going above 80C or so. The video card will reduce performance to try and keep heat down.
