As a random guess I will go with CPU bottleneck.

It's hard to give any constructive advice without more details of the system you are running.

Adept II

indeed some more info would be wise mobo type, ram modules installed, cpu type and number of cores, and what type of monitor you use eq with freesync or without and max hz.

btw when you have a 60 hz or 144hz monitor you should know everything above the monitors fps capebilities are discarded ever second or so, so 100 fps on lets say a 60 hz(eq 60 fps) monitor is discarding an average of 40 frames every second,then you are bottlenecking  between monitor fps rates and gpu pre rendered frames. 

The RX 580 is substantially more powerful but it depends on the situation for rendering with vsync etc.
