More lag with more FPS?

Hi there. My specs:
Lutris 0.5.9.1
Linux Mint 19.3 Cinn.
Radeon RX550
Ryzen 3600X

Detail specs: { "comment": "OW lags", "system": { "gpus": [ { "DRIV - Pastebin.com

I installed OW using the Lutris standard script and it worked.

I play Overwatch on Lutris, with 69 FPS (limited by my old display). Working great! Now I upraded to a BenQ 144Hz display (DP connection). What I did after setting it up:

  • Going to /home/.config/Monitors.xml and setting the FPS to 144
    Then I checked it using https://www.testufo.com/ Indeed, there is a visible difference betwee then 70 and 140 FPS clip so I guess its working.
  • In OW I realized that my graphics struggle with 144 FPS and I usually get around 100 - 120 on low settings. Works.

The problem: since then I sometimes have BIG lags. I mean, like screen frozen for 1/5 of a second. Never happened before. Not often but a few times per game. What is going on? Is my config wrong? Is my hardware too slow? The FPS display never drops below 90 tho. So I am not sure what happens here. Any advice? Thanks a lot!

EDIT: missing console output:
