I think You can try install official nvidia drivers for Your graphic card.

BUT!

when I install the newest (380.xxx) proprietary drivers I can`t use HDMI audio output.

This issue affects many different distributions, I delete the newest driver from nvidia and install old version (340.104).

Sound is working with HDMI output and I think frezzes do not happen anymore. But I do this in manjaro - not fedora.

It is worth a try.

Just uninstall any drivers (open and nvidias drivers) and install 340.104. Next go to settings>Sound and set up sound output to HDMI, not SPDIF.

I WILL BE DOWNVOTING ALL 4 QUESTIONS, WHERE YOU COPY AND PASTE THIS ANSWER, ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU STATE YOU ARE USING MANJARO AND NOT FEDORA. HOW DOES THIS HELP SOMEONE USING FEDORA?

Can You tell my what is the difference in installing drivers between fedora and manjaro? i do not have idea... This issue affects many different distributions. The solution is the same everywhere. What do you not understand?

The steps needed to install drivers on different distros are not going to be the same, so by not providing more information, you are not really helping.
