All of the sudden all of my projects are extremely choppy, laggy and skipping backwards when playingback in the editor.
I've tried clearing the cache, uninstalled premiere and reinstalled it. I have no idea why it suddenly started doing this. Here is a video of it's preformance.
you can even see the timeline guide in the timeline glitching and rewinding a bit.
I've edited on this rig for years with no issue.
120G SSD for cache
Likely some auto-update is to blame: Windows, Drivers or Premiere itself. Or maybe there was some change in hw-config/connected devices that you did not mention. Think what that could be and try to roll back.
is there a way to upload hw-config?
Could you also include what version of Premiere Pro you have? Have you updated anything recently by chance?
so far I have tried proxies, reinstalled premiere pro, rolled back premiere to 14.7, updated graphics drivers, nothing has worked.
I'm really at a loss here on what to do, anyone have any ideas?

Many users are having issues with VFR. If the file is variable frame rate, use Hand brake to convert to constant frame rate:
Here is a tutorial:
If that's not it:
Try resetting the preferences:
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.
If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site. If NVIDIA, do a clean install of the latest Studio Driver (NOT the Game Driver).
If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
