Micro Stutter any driver after 18.9.3

I have tried multiple driver updates after 18.9.3 and each time I get this awful micro stutter where every couple of seconds the computer hangs for 1-2 seconds and have to run Driver Sweeper and reinstall 18.9.3. Very annoying, this happens in applications and in standard desktop environment. I went on the internet and tired various fixes and have yet to find any that work. Prior to any installation I run Driver Sweeper and remove all of the current driver before update or rolling back.


Been looking to run update the drivers to increase my performance on more recent games such as Battlefield V. I am pulling ~40-50 FPS at 1080P on medium settings... I know I should be able to do much better than this with my card.


Battlefield 1 runs maxed out at 70-90FPS


I currently use my computer as a workstation/server that I game on. I'd like to get this figured out so I don't have to have a separate gaming computer.
