70C is extremely hot for an idling card. Low FPS are probably because its overheating and throttling down.
probably time to check with the laptop manufactuerer. If the warranty is out. disassembly required.
Then again some manufactuerers put extremely cheap heatsinks on there units. With extremly cheap thermal paste. Maybe time to change that out as well.
