Not being able to run Persona 3 FES at usual speeds after reinstalling Windows

I hope this is the right place to post something like this. So I've been playing Persona 3 FES for a while now, but I had to reinstall Windows 10 on my computer, and now, even though the hardware and settings I use are the same (I used the config guide from the website both when I had first set up PCSX2 and now), I can't manage to get the intros (openings) run smoothly and there are, although somewhat rare, "stutters" in-game. I can confirm that I had been able to run this game w/o any trouble on this computer previously and I tried a bunch of things I could thought of already.

I use a laptop, so I made sure all the power settings are at maximum perfomance, ran through general settings, both on Windows and NVIDIA control panel, made sure the emulator uses the dedicated graphics card, and couldn't detect anything that could be causing the loss of speed. Anything someone can help me with would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

There's been a lot of PCSX2 updates for the video plugin, and I don't really feel comfortable using anything past "v1.5.0-dev-3000-g910ef1db4"

I upgraded to like 3100 something, then noticed my Resident Evil Outbreak games were chugging and had way less FPS. I downgraded to 3000, no issues since.
Check your power settings in Windows. Windows defaults to balanced, and being a laptop, this will cause your CPU to throttle down quite a bit.
