I can't achieve a stable average 144 FPS especially on World's Edge and around Lava, I feel the frame drops below 110.
  • Ram: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB, DDR4-3200
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • GPU: Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 8GB
  • SSD: Corsair MP510 M.2
  • Monitor : 144 Hz 1080p
FPS drop below 130 in fights, etc.
Resolution : 1680x1050 16:10
All settings to the lowest, tried overclocking, temps are fine, no thermal throttling, XMP enabled, videoconfig tweaked, clean windows installation. Do I need to upgrade my GPU?
 

RTX 2080

The RX 580 is a good 1080p 60 fps card, it's definitely going to leave a lot to be desired at 1080p if you're trying to hit 144 fps. You definitely need a faster GPU.

I'd recommend you something like a RTX 2060 or a 5600XT.

what the cpu/gpu tmep and usage during the game?
ram/ssd usage?

malware scan the system?
CPU Temp and usage : around 65 and 75°C max, around 40% usage
CPU Temp and usage : around 75 and 80°C max, around 98 to 100% usage

RAM and SSD are far away from busy, around 30 to 50%
