A few month ago i encountered this annoying problem that after around 5 minutes in game, the screen freezes every 10-20 seconds for about 1 sec. I noticed that first in hunt: showdown and pubg i have done a lot of research since this happened first but nothing seems to work. Now im having the same problem with the game Apex Legends. I tried setting the graphics to potato-mode (everything-off and ultra low) but that didnt work, and the temperature is also around 75° so no heat problem.
Im playing on a Laptop:
Alienware 15-R3 64bit
intel core i7-6700HQ 2.60GHz
GTX 1070 8Gb
Thanks for any help!

I tried literally everything:
1) Updating drivers and BIOS : didn't solve
2) Enable fan performance mode : didnt' solve
3) Enable Cpu performance mode (OC) : didn't solve
3) Using the diagnostics on the official Dell site (the 40 minutes test with supportassist): didn't find anything wrong
4) Updating my GPU drivers: didn't solve
5) Rollbacked my GPU drivers: didn't solve
6) Changing and trying different battery options: didn't solve
7) Changing and trying different settings through Nvidia control panel: didn't solve
8) Scanning my pc with different anti virus / anti malware : didn't find anything, my pc is clean
9) Cleaning the dust on the back of my pc: didn't solve
I'm probably forgetting something, but those are the most important things i tried.
I don't know what to do anymore, the situation while i gaming (doesn't matter the game, it happens with every game), is the following:
why their usage isnt stable?? What the heck is that behavior?
Temperatures of CPU and GPU while i game are very very high too.
