Anyone else noticed stuttering in games recently?

Tiny little update. I spoke WAY too soon. The stuttering is back with a vengeance. I really suspect it’s an audio thing, however I’m on an AMD CPU and AMD had to quickly release new microcode because all the new Ryzen 7000 chips were melting down/exploding/smoking and catching on fire and whatever else. I know part of that microcode update was adjusting a bunch of thresholds. I don’t know if that might be part of my problem as well. I’m running a Ryzen 5600X though, but I still see the AMD update in my list I posted above earlier.

I don’t know. I’m gonna shut the computer off for like 7 days, then come back and update and see if it auto-magically is working again. XD
