I'm having extreme lag within premiere pro. I literally cannot edit. The playback lags and loses frames no matter what i do. I have tried using cuda and no cuda, playback is on 1/4 quality. I've tried proxies, media endcoder lags as well. Premiere worked perfectly with the last version I had (I think it was 2018 or 2019) This is so frustrating I want to cancel my subscription. I have a video deadline that I cannot meet.
How can i get an older version of premiere because that worked fine for me.
i have a pretty powerful pc
intel i7 9700k
16 GB DDR4 RAM
plenty of storage

You should probably revert to the previous version of premiere you were using it without issue.
updates often require better hardware. And 16gigs ram is not a lot particularly if you're working with 4K material. You say you have plenty of storage, but drive access speed may be an issue.. and SSD storage is definitely preferred. Drives will inevitably fail. It's a question of when, not if.
and please tell us your source properties and sequence settings...
