RX 6600 XT Stutters on Overwatch with newest driver - 22.5.2

Hello everyone.

I want to notify that after updating the driver to 22.5.2 it has fixed some reading temperature issues on MSI Afterburner and another softwares, it is really cool.

But after the update im having some problems with the FPS on Overwatch, its dropping from 250 fps (capped) to 140 fps, 60fps, etc.

Is there something to do rather than downgrading?

Same issue on 6700xt. Micro stuttering all over the place, fps going from 250 to 140, sometimes even below 100 stutters. I rolled back the drivers to 22.5.1 and all went back to normal.

I've had the same behaviour on the May Preview Drivers and 22.5.2 using a 6900XT. Looking at the frame time metrics there appears to be periodic slow frames causing the stuttering that doesn't happen with 22.5.1 or before.

I've bug reported it on both drivers, everyone suffering from it probably should and then reverted back to 22.5.1.

It's not just Overwatch, it happens with a lot of games. In my case Hunt: Showdown. Rolling back to 21.10.2 solves the issue.

Thanks for all the posts.
Regarding stuttering in overwatch on the preview and 22.5.2 drivers, does the stuttering get better after a certain amount of time? For example, if you play for an hour, does it get better as time progresses? Or is it constant regardless?

6700 xt here, i couldnt even play for an hour but i think it has something to do with the shader compilation the game does at launch when it detects new drivers because im pretty sure i didnt see that process happen on 22.5.2 (normally the game goes to 100% cpu usage for some time and then stops after its done). The stutters were terrible, i was thinking maybe it was the assests or shaders loading in but nope i went around the map i was playing at that time during the match and the stutters remained. I DDU ed and reinstalled 22.5.2 but same problem, had to go back to 22.5.1
