here are specs :
FX 8300
RX 470 4GB
12GB DDR3 1600MHZ
500GB HDD
500W PSU

every single of my game lags everytime i put the resolution at 1080p but when i put it on 1050p the game goes smooth again however in both cases the FPS is always above 60 but it feels like its at 30fps.

games tested :
PAYDAY 2
COD : WARZONE
DOTA 2

Your FX processor is all but obsolete with very slow cores.
It would seem that more work is required of the processor to prepare more pixels for display using 1080P
but shouldnt cpu performance impact the resolution? i thought that depends on the GPU

It is a bit of the other way around. It is the cpu that generates the Items that must be shown on the monitor.
There are more such items with higher resolutions so the cpu must be capable enough to generate them at a good rate.
Then, it becomes the responsibility of the graphics card to display them at the good rate..
Both resources should be somewhat balanced.
