So, I just recently upgraded from my 1080ti FTW3 to a used 3080ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming. When performing the upgrade, I decided that I needed to upgrade many components, so this computer is practically new. I never really had issues with Windows 11 on my 1080ti, but on the 3080ti, I have had some weird random problems. When I installed it, it was fine, but the RTX Voice wasn't working. I had to disable hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling to get it to work properly. And I didn't have issues for a while until my GPU stopped getting utilized randomly. So, I ended up having to upgrade my graphics drivers. I used DDU in safe mode, and suddenly, the computer won't boot into safe mode. It redirects back to normal mode every time I try to boot into safe mode through the recovery options. So I had to run DDU without Safe mode, and after the reinstall, I updated the drivers, and the GPU is being fully utilized again. But whenever it stopped getting full utilization, whenever I am in Chrome, it pops up black boxes randomly. I fixed this by making Chrome a "power saving mode" task through Graphics Settings in Windows.
 
My Computer's Specs are;
CPU: Ryzen 9 5950x (16c/32t)
MB: MSI MAG B550M MORTAR WIFI
GPU: EVGA 3080ti FTW3 Ultra Gaming
RAM: Kingston Fury DDR4 64GB 3200mhz (2x32gb)
PSU: Seasonic Prime GX-1300 80+ Gold
Storage: 10TB (Too much) 
3TB M.2 
    Gen.4 1TB WD Black
    Gen.3 2TB Sabrent RocketQ
2TB SATA SSD
    Silicon Power 2TB SSD
5TB SATA HDD
    Seagate IronWolf Pro 1TB
    WD Black 4TB
 
Is this issue related to the graphics card? Or does it have to do with Windows 11 Scheduling not being able to work with the GPU the way it wants? Any support is greatly appreciated!

Try reinstalling your motherboard chipset drivers. 
 
If nothing else works my suggestion would be (for troubleshooting only) to install a fresh install of Windows 11 on one of the drives or on a spare SSD if you have one.

Sounds like a chrome browser issue. Does this also happen with other browsers such as firefox & edge?

I installed the Chipset Windows 11 Driver off of the motherboard website instead of letting MSI Center install it. It then installed two more drivers to make it compatible with my CPU. Now I am having no more issues. It's weird that MSI Center doesn't install them itself.
