GPU overheating issue?

Recommended Posts

My Lenovo W520 with Nvidia Quadro 1000M (Nvidia optimus) overheats when running the game for one or two minutes even on the very lowest settings, and throttles the GPU down causing massive framerate drops(from around 50-60 fps to 10-15 fps) for a few seconds, making the game unplayable.

This doesn't happen in any other game, while most of them I can play perfectly fine using relatively medium to low settings.(Skyrim, Bioshock Infinite, civ V, etc.)

I'm on all the latest drivers. Is this a game specific problem?
