F27 Gnome (esp. Wayland) very slow after last update (4.14.11)

Hi, Last Thursday, I worked a while on Fedora 27 (this is a dual boot system with Windows 10), everything was working fine, and I updated the system with the dnf upgrade command, but didn't reboot at the time, and then I turned off the computer and I haven't booted on Fedora since this morning, where I immediately noticed that everything was extremely sluggish, even on the login screen. The CPU usage is like 90% percent on every core of my AMD Ryzen 1700X and graphically, the Gnome desktop is very slow. My dnf history is as follows:

The installed kernels that I have now:

  • 4.14.11
  • 4.14.8
  • 4.14.6

It was update #7 that installed version 4.14.8, and with that version everything worked fine before update #9, which installed 4.14.11. But now, if I select 4.14.8 on the GRUB boot menu, I have the same huge performance issue. On the login screen, if I choose GNOME on Xorg, then it works much better, but it's still sluggish, and CPU usage is higher than before on idle.

Finally, if I boot on 4.14.6, performance is normal and the Gnome desktop is very smooth, as it was before update #9. So that means that it's probably not the kernel update alone that causes this issue, otherwise it should still work fine with 4.14.8, as it used to before update #9, right?

My graphics card is an nvidia GeForce 1070, and I haven't tried installing the proprietary driver yet.

Also, I cannot rollback my updates, because if I do dnf history rollback 8, I get:

...
No package appstream-data-0:27-7.fc27.noarch available.
Error : A transaction cannot be undone

So it seems that for now I can work by booting on 4.14.6, but what steps should I take to try to solve this problem? Thanks in advance
