Keyboard Movement Pauses unless continually pressing and releasing the keys

Not sure if anyone else has this issue. Just downloaded Gears 5. Looking around with the mouse looks smooth and crisp. But when moving with the keyboard (W,A,S,D), the movement freezes when holding the key. It moves forward very choppy when I continually press and release the button, but push and hold freezes. My rig is well within the minimum requirements for the game (i7, 16gb ram, 970gx vid, SSD). I also updated all my drivers to make sure there where no driver issues.

Any thoughts?
