I built my pc last month and have had no issues running any game maxed out 4k. But today games became almost unplayable. I frequently get dips from 150fps down to 5fps for several seconds. I had played an hour of Battlefield 1 when the issue randomly started. I thought it was a server issue at first but after launching hitman, deadspace and hogwarts all have the same issue now. Tried a driver update but no luck. Any suggestions before I try to contact Gigabyte support ?

Gigabyte Aorus x670
Gigabyte Gaming OC 4080
7800x 3D
32gb ddr5 G.Skill Z5
2tb SK hynix p41
corsair RM850x PSU

Try removing the driver on the GPU altogether then reinstalling the latest driver sometimes bugs can occur when updating
tried but still having the issue. Forgot to add depending on game it also causes parts of the scene or characters look like they're on low settings when fps dips.
