Every driver update after 22.4.2 reduces 6700xt performance

So, I bought a 6700XT about 5 months ago and paired it with a Ryzen 5 5600 CPU; since then, I've used my PC for gaming and video editing, and the GPU has performed great, despite some random hard PC stutters that last 1 or 2 seconds.

The problem is that I am stuck at the 22.4.2 driver version because every time I update drivers, I experience reduced performance in games—not a significant enough performance drop to prevent me from playing, but noticeable enough. But the biggest problem isn't the gaming part; after editing a video, exporting it takes 2-3 times longer if I update my drivers.

Is anyone else experiencing the same thing?

I've tested the latest recommended drivers (22.11.2) because some games demand a driver update, but the problem persists. And since everything works just fine when I use the 22.4.2 version, I can only suppose the problems are caused by the drivers. I will most likely rollback to 22.4.2 again, but if anyone can give me some help, I'd appreciate it.
