Question AMD drivers above 17.10 cause stuttering

So somewhere 2 years ago AMD had a driver update that I installed which caused stuttering. I thought that it was a bug and that it would get fixed. Now, two year later, it still isn't solved. I tried deleting drivers with DDU and installing again. I tried fiddling around with a lot of settings but nothing did anything. It is a stutter every second and it's very annoying. Games start saying that I'm running unsupported drivers and I'm feeling that I can get better performance if the newer drivers worked. Instead, I have to run 17.10 drivers. Here is a video to show what happens:

DId you also updated BIOS, chipset, windows to the newest?
Have you done a new installation of windows to see if that worked?

If you did those things and didn't work, I would have RMA'd the card.

Yup, did all that. I bought the card two years ago so I don't think I can RMA it.

Nope. Warranty is 2 years and I bought the card in March 2017. One thing that works is installing the old drivers and then updating the drivers in device manager. But as soon as I restart my PC, the problem reoccurs.
