NEW DRIVERS MAKE YOUTUBE AND DISCORD LAG WHILE PLAYING GAME

So I am facing a huge problem with the new rx580 drivers. The problem is with the new drivers. When I play a game (planet coaster) the game runs fine but discord screen sharing and a youtube video will lag. I have three monitors. Last time I had this issue I re-installed windows and that rolled the drivers all the way back. You see games used to run at a slightly lower FPS (About 10 less) and other programs like discord and youtube would run smoothly. With the new drivers yes the game is (+10fps) faster however the youtube videos are un-watchable and screen sharing flickers. However in games like dirt rally with old drivers it would lag but new drivers it's fine.  Please help me solve this issue thanks

Re: NEW DRIVERS MAKE YOUTUBE AND DISCORD LAG WHILE PLAYING GAME

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I believe this issue has existed since Windows 10 update 1803 and still exists in 1809. Disable freesync and reset PC was a workaround that used to work in windows version 1803 but no longer works in 1809.
