I'm having an issue with my new msi rx 480 4gb, when I'm playing a game the frame rate will typically start off quite good(60-90fps) for the first few moments, but soon it'll drop to around 50-20fps it goes on and on when playing, which causes significant stuttering in my games.
I tried to use ddu in safe mode to uninstall drivers, then reinstall.
I've tried increasing along with decreasing it's power limit% on both wattman, and msi after burner.
I've tried lowering my games graphical settings to the lowest amount but still the problems persist, I'm at a lost of what I should do.

[Edit]: I've also tried reinstalling Windows, but to no avail.
to be more specific about the gaming issue, I'll use deus ex mankind divided as an example
I play only at 1080p resolution, and I keep the graphical settings on high with motion blur, and msaa off which according to the recommended system requirements I should be able to play at a stable 60fps,and not experience drops to 20fps.
the same goes for batman arkham knight, rise of the tomb raider, and even older games such as the first dishonored.
I'm starting to become fearful that something is wrong with my card.
