Question stuttering in game

Has this stuttering been a recent thing?
If so, what might have changed?
Possibly windows push out a non optimal update.
You could try using system restore to go back to when all was well.

Stuttering is usually caused by lack of cpu resources.
Your graph shows 34% total cpu busy spread out over 16 logical processors.
I suspect that the core speed of the master thread is not sufficient.
Have you been able to overclock at all?
That would help.

Are you short of ram?
A hard page fault will look to your game as a cpu slowdown.
Task manager hard page fault statistics should show zero.
If you are not using a ssd for windows, page fault resolution will be some 40x slower on a hdd.

I will try a system restore, I have done a overclock dosent make a difference when I run msi kumbustor there is a constant stutter like every 5 seconds. p hjave 16 gb of ram

16gb of ram is usually sufficient unless you are also heavily multitasking.

I was talking about a cpu overclock, not a graphics overclock.

A 5 second frequency is telling something.
What is taking place every 5 seconds?

Perhaps you have contracted malware or a virus.
Perhaps email is opening up every 5 seconds.
Perhaps some app is looking for maintenance upgrades on a timer.

Task manager will show you what tasks are running and how much cpu they are taking.

when I said every 5 seconds its more like every 1 second View: https://imgur.com/YLcYiot
 
A few folks get better results in the occasional game or application with SMT disabled...(quick enough to try if only to rule it out as a potential issue, anyway)

Unless what you are running is installed/connected to the spinning spinning hard drive, try disconnecting it for a while just to rule it out, running instead exclusively from the SSD...

I'd also perhaps try slightly slower RAM clocks/timings, as Ryzens can be sensitive to such...

Stop every non-essential application or service prior to launching your chosen game/benchmark...(you can definietly see the 1/20th of a second duration hitch every send or so in the above shot, nice work...)

I don't know if this matters but when I use nvidia GeForce now it seems to stop
