Non-reference RX 6800 - AMD Adrenaline causes stuttering


  • PSU: 750W that comes with NZXT H1 v2 case
  • MoBo: ASUS Rog Strix B660-I Gaming wifi
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-12700K
  • GPU: Gigabyte Radeon RX 6800 Aorus Master
  • RAM: Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 5600MHz 2x16GB
  • OS: Windows 11 Education v22H2


The PC micro-stutters every second after installing AMD Adrenalin. It's hard to notice out of game, but the mouse skips a little when I move it around every second on the beat. This is much more annoying in games, as the screen stutters are very apparent when I move around even without moving the mouse.

I have tried both Adrenalin versions 22.5.1 and 22.11.2, and the only way I've managed to fix the issue this far is by removing them with AMD Cleanup Utility. Also using Microsoft Basic Display Adapter as GPU driver in device manager seems to make the stuttering go away. This is what makes me think the problem lies with Adrenalin. 

Any help that would make Adrenalin work for my system would be greatly appreciated.

Any help or pointers towards a possible solution would be lovely, I have been troubleshooting this for three days. I built this PC right before christmas, and I'm no tech genius, but this shouldn't happen. It's like the PC is loading something heavy every second.
