5700xt low vram usage

Hello, I have an issue with my brand new 5700xt while playing Cities Skylines, it needs very much VRAM and RAM and this GPU doesn't use more than 2.5GB out of 8GB, and therefore the fps drops down to 25-30 which is pretty low for the new configuration I have now. Both are being compared on the same map/mods/assets, etc.
Old Specifications: i5 6600k 3.9Ghz stock, 16GB 1666hz Dual-Channel DDR3, GTX 1060 Turbo 6GB Asus B150, 520 W Antec PSU(35-40 FPS).

New Specifications: AMD Ryzen 5 2600x (2nd zen gen), 16GB 3200 DDR4 Dual-channel XMP2.0 Corsair, AMD Radeon 5700XT 8GB 256 Bits, Asus Rog Strix B450 F Gaming Same Antec 520W PSU (25-30) FPS.

Based on some reviews, the new GPU and CPU are way better than the old ones in numbers but I believe it might be a GPU driver issue.

In the other hand, for example, on COD Warzone I got like 20-30 fps more and full VRAM usage.

So, all being said, what should I do? is there a way to fix this?
I mention that I have the latest GPU, Chipset, Windows drivers and software.

Thank you,

I would test your rig with a different PSU.
