System Specs:

CPU - R7 1700 @ 3.8ghz
RAM - 32gb Hyper X @ 2400mhz stock
PSU - Corsair RM850x
Mobo - x370 Taichi
GPU - Gigabyte RTX 2080 OC
Nvidia Driver 417.71.

I've recently upgraded my gpu to a rtx 2080 from an rx 480.
I've uninstalled all old drivers before installing my 2080 then I installed nvidia drivers.
I'm playing at 21:9 1080p ultrawide 85hz.

I've had this issue since I bought the card.
It constantly freezes in the middle of the game for about 5-10 seconds then the following fps is extremely low.


I've experience this issue during gameplay of the following games:

Overwatch
Fortnite
BF5

I'm all out of ideas on how to fix this.
Any ideas?

***Update*** I've uninstalled drivers using ddu and reinstalled drivers still no luck.
I do not think my cpu is bottlenecking my gpu.
FPS is great but this only have after about 1 hour of gaming...fps drops to 0 then slowly climbs back up to high fps..
I also want to mention this never happened when I was using my XFX RX480 GTR

Thanks,

Try going into geforce experience, game menu and click on details of a game. In the next screen there is a wrench on the right. Click on it and slide the icon to the right towards performance and click apply. Then play the game see if thatnhelps

CPU usage average is at 81% however cpu #0 and cpu #1 is at 100% and 96%.
Not sure if this is considered cpu bottlenecking.

Well I'm assuming my 2080 can play all games at ultra settings 1080p 21:9. Especially because my rx 480 ran Overwatch at ultra settings for a smooth 85mhz locked.

Try to downclock the memory, there is a known issue with the memory.
Set is to -500 and try to play again. > it's not normal... and you best can return the card and ask for a new one or a refund.
If you can play without crashes but still have stutter try to downgrade to the driver:
GeForce Game Ready Driver - WHQL
Version: 417.35 - Release Date: Wed Dec 12, 2018

I currently don't have any issues with my memory, but i had stutter in all my games, even in the main menu of the games...
The software downgrade fixed most of my stutter problems.
