Huge FPS drops and low gpu usage on 1.61.

Hello! I have a problem with CP2077-regardless of graphics settings, FPS drops in some city areas (for example when V leaves the apartment for the first time to meet Jackie). The problem with drops is not visible in built-in benchmark. Drops are from 60 FPS to even 35-40. Also, GPU usage is low (I rarely see utilization above 70 %). Applying DLSS raises the average FPS, but does not eliminate drops. Even on LOW preset, drops are still there. Windows updates, GPU drivers etc. - everything is up to date. Also, used DDU already to reinstall GPU drivers.
OS is clean, without any applications that could cause such issue. Other demanding games runs good as expected. I saw many threads about performance issues with newest patch - unfortunately I can't test the game's older version because on Epic Games Launcher there is no rollback function. I play on Legion 5 laptop (5600H + RTX 3060 + 16 GB RAM). Temperatures are good, there is no thermal throttling.

Do someone have similar problem?
I have also been having fps issues like I will be at 60 fps in good areas then just drop to under 30 fps only fix is to restart game definitely a memory leak or something.

Thank you for replies. Will update to newest GPU driver and let you know. I was on 531.29.

EDIT: For me, the newest driver didn't fix the issue, unfortunately.
