Question Frame Skipping Rx480

May 5, 2020
I thought removing an un-compatible fixed it but it started to happen again. Basically regardless of the quality preset, some games skip frames every second or so. It is like freezing but for a milisecond and it happens almost every second. I observe this in some games like Snowrunner and Fallen Order but Overwatch and Witcher 3 seems to be working perfectly. This behavior also happens in almost every benchmark including Firestrike. I already tried DDU and fresh Windows also observed the temps and they seem perfectly fine. I do not really know what to do, when I put this system together it was running Benchmarks without a sweat not the same benchmark freezes every second and it is frustating.
