Watch the difference between running Fortnite with 1 stick of 8GB in single channel compared to 2x4GB in dual channel.

Now look at how many fps difference when you use 1x8GB in single channel vs 2x8GB in dual channel.

I would start there.
The stronger gpu demands more work from the cpu, but now the lack of memory bandwidth is proving to be a problem when it wasn't before with the weaker gpu.
So buying another 8gb stick should solve the problem?

No. Buying a 2x8GB Kit and removing the 8GB you're using would be the best solution. Mixing RAM is not recommended.

This is not for the CPU/GPU usage that I said that but just for the FPS you're losing because of the 1 stick in single channel.

I recommend you use DDU and reinstall the latest GPU drivers.
