    Random FPS drops/Stutters in Battlefield 4 on R9 390. (Low GPU Usage)


      Ok this has been going on for a few months now and i have reported it to the driver team 3 or 4 times by now but still it hasn't been fixed. My GPU Usage will just fluctuate all over the place and while i understand it's meant to fluctuate between 90-100% but mine is dropping to 0% into the 10-30% back up to 100% constantly which then causes my game to lag and/or stutter. I have tried using DDU to clean the Drivers off my System as well and reinstalling Windows 10 but the issue still Occurs. I will leave my System Specs below as well as screenshot of MSI Afterburner that shows the GPU Usage and FPS dropping. (Unified GPU Usage Monitoring is enabled also)
