Random stutter on my Asus M1603 Laptop

Hello. I recently installed Zorin OS again on my new laptop (fairly new, bought recently). Sometimes things stutter a bit, I think while using Chrome. I checked disk usage, and the read and write speeds of the disk are not maxing out.

My laptop comes with no discrete GPU. Just the integrated AMD GPU. How can I tell that GPU is causing this issue - if at all it's the one causing it?

Here's my CPU and GPU specs.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5800H with Radeon Graphics (16) @ 4.463GHz 
GPU: AMD ATI 03:00.0 Cezanne 
RAM: 16GB

I'm very sure it's not the CPU. The 5-minute load average is below 1.
Thanks for your input!

You might try the Oibaf drivers for AMD:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers

sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

Reboot and test.

As an aside, if you are using Redshift, you might test with that disabled.

Okay. I'll take a backup of my system and do the GPU driver update.

Redshift?

AMD GPU accelerated renderer. IF you were using it, I am sure you would know it.
