Strange Systemload

I noticed something strange.

when I watch videos on amazon prime and open the forum https://forum.level1techs.com/ I have video frame drops immediately. In System Monitor there are threads spiking all over the place even though, no additional workload was added to the system except the one tab with the forums.

Using the forum without having the stream opened is no problem as well as watching streams without the forum pages.

Did someone notice anything similar or can anyone reproduce this?

The system I’m running:

Ryzen 1600
X470 Chipset
1080Ti
Fedora 29
kernel 4.19.8-300.fc29.x86_64
Firefox 63.0.3

You seem to be about 5+ kernel releases behind.
F29 is up to 4.20.16 now.

Definitely sounds like it should be a driver issue.
I do prime and forum all the time with no issues.

But I have either igpu or amd gpu for graphics on my systems
