Oblivion stuttering issue, random fps drops

Hi guys!

I am trying to play the game on my laptop.
On Windows it worked fine, but now I'm having issues on my Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS. (SteamPlay, Proton 4.2-9)

The laptop is Lenovo ideapad 100-15ibd:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-5005U CPU @ 2.00GHz
GeForce 920M

I tried every possible solution I could find on the internet:
1) protontricks quartz
2) using a different proton version
3) updating nvidia drivers
4) some gamemoderun %command% that didn't even let me start the game

5) i tried these CPU tweaks:
bUseThreadedBlood=1 (default 0)
bUseThreadedMorpher=1 (default 0)
bUseThreadedTempEffects=1 (default 0)
bUseThreadedParticleSystem=1 (default 0)
bUseBackgroundPathing=1 (default 0)
bUseBackgroundFileLoader=1 (default 0)
iNumHavokThreads=3 (default 1)
iThreads=10 (default 3)

6) I tried turning off: texture, specular and diffuse
7) i tried the lowest possible graphics settings

The only thing that kinda worked was turning of the sound and music completely (bSound=0), but I am playing the game in german in order to practice my german so it's kind of pointless if I can't hear anything, and the game still lagged a bit anyway

Does anyone know what I could do?
I really love this game, but I can't play it with these random fps drops that last a couple of seconds

I only have the Unofficial Oblivion Patch activated besides the Master File.

Thanks in advance!

Why did you create two topics with the same problem?

Why so they did! It'd probably be easier for me to move my comment over there and just ask Wiz to close this one. I'll do that and remove the comment from here.
