RX 5700 Warzone Stuttering VRAM Max Usage

Like some other Navi GPU users, I'm experiencing stutters in COD: Warzone.
I don't have a screen capture but its identical to this YouTube video at the 20:50 mark and onwards:
https://youtu.be/5SoGXZwBciU?t=1250

Every 5 to 10 seconds the screen freezes for half a second. And you can see this happening through the Frametime graph where the spike occurs in the video.

For my case, I was able to workaround the issue by setting VideoMemoryScale to 0.4 for the "adv_options" config file for Warzone. This reduced my VRAM usage in game to below 7000 megabytes. 

Unfortunately there are some players who are unable to resolve this issue.

Based on my observation, the issue seems to exist whenever VRAM usage is above 7000 megabytes or close to being maxed-out.

Is this a memory leak issue pertaining to the driver or the game? Can the engineering team attempt to replicate this issue on their end?

Thank you.

It is the problem of the game for that you must delete everything inside the main folder where call of duty was installed and open the game again this will make the shaders install, just wait and play

Wouldn't that just corrupt the game directory?

It won't just reinstall the shadows to the game

Go to

C:\Users\<Username>\Documents\Call of Duty Modern Warfare\players and edit the "adv_options" file.

I have VideoMemoryScale set to '0.4'. Default was 0.85.
