Hello Friends

I've been experiencing major stuttering and FPS drops in the past week. When typing text, there will be periods where it takes 3-4 seconds before it shows up on the screen. Switching tabs, watching video, opening the Start menu etc - all show random lag.

Specs
OS: Windows 10 Insider Build
CPU: Ryzen 1600 6-core 12 threads
GPU: GTX 1060 6GB
RAM: G.Skill 8GB DDR4 2667mgz
What I've tried so far
  1. Ran a malware scan with malware bytes
  2. Downgraded the latest nvidia drivers to the previous version, as the issues occured about the time I updated my nvidia drivers. Downgrading did not fix the issue (I ran DDU and clean installed the drivers). My other drivers are updated
  3. I checked task manager - no programs or services so excessive CPU usage, and I have around 2GB of RAM free.
  4. I checked Latency Monitor, and I'm not really experiencing any DPC latency issues.

Please help me!
