Radeon RX 580: Why are the majority of my games experiencing constant drops in FPS after the latest driver update?

Greetings! I come here today with a request for an issue I have been having for quite some time now, and since posts that already have been made don't answer my question, I figured that asking this myself would be easier.

 

The Issue

For the past week or so, after updating the drivers for my HP Omen X's AMD Radeon RX 580, most of my games that I play (Dead by Daylight and Minecraft Java Edition, to name a few) have been experiencing frame issues.

Games including the aforementioned run normally for almost one second, then slows down FPS-wise for a split second, then repeats the process. Certain games such as Roblox, however, do not experience this issue, and behave normally with no flaws.

 

Debugging

Not many games that I was having issues with were experiencing this, until I went to Minecraft Java Edition. I opened up the FPS debugging menu, and got the results in the image below after letting it go on for about 10 seconds total.

As you can see, the green lines represent the FPS. They are normal for a split second, then constantly go down and back up. This is consistent with the majority of games I play.
