So I have a ryzen 5 1400, and a rx 560. These according to Ubisoft fit the minimum requirements to play the division 2. However, when I play I get constant frame drops like I cant even move. I have lowered all settings, gone into window mode, and lowered resolution to the lowest with the same results and 1080p res.
 
I suspect that your issue is related to page file as related to RAM and the HDD as well as the GPU.
As you go past 50% RAM usage you will have it paging often used items to the disk. I would suspect that activity alone is a good portion of your issue. Perhaps see if you can disable background processes to free up some RAM and see if any improvement.

Also of note, your PSU is very low. If you look within this chart:

recommended 400W for that card, aside from other components.
 
RAM amount? Temps? HDD or SSD?

In this case I might suggest installing RIVA tuner alongside Afterburner. Look at your in game usages in relation to physical amounts of RAM and so forth, and temps to see what's "hurting".

I can tell you now that I also play Division 2 and have a FAR better system and there are times when it makes mine cry too. This latest round of patches have been a nightmare all the way around.

As a side note, do you have Wildlands or Breakpoint? Do you have the same problems there?

In my own case, if I try to play Div2 with a dual screen monitor setup going (one screen game, one screen info) it chops like heck on my system too.

Division 2 is the only ubisoft game I have that has these types of stutters

I have never run a game at such a low resolution and reduced screen size. I find myself wondering if the combination of running it windowed and having to process it down to that lower size isn't the causation?
Well I have tried fullscreen at 50%, and at 100% but I get the same results and all resolutions on the low settings
