18.2.2 Fullscreen glitch/lagg (R9 280X)

I am experiencing frame spikes and stuttering during full screen mode on many of my steam games, sometimes browsers playing youtube videos, and VLC player at fullscreen. I cash on some games after 40-60mins of play. GPU doesnt exceed 75c and cpu doesnt exceed 70c.
My monitor resolution is 16x9 at 60hz. the 18.1.1 driver worked fine. I had no issue running games. I am sure its the driver because even VLC is stuttering badly in fullscreen. Does anyone have a solution without installing the current driver?

Notes: I have the extra setting such as chill, peroformance, and etc off. The only thing I have on is relive's replay, gif, and desktop recording. Display settings and global graphics setting are all untouched.

Bit confusing, 18.2.2, 18.1.1.. "without installing the current driver".

Have you hacked the new settings onto older driver, or just typo error ?
