Morning/afternoon and happy New Years;
After dealing with this issue since I directly upgraded to Sierra on my old machine a couple of years ago. I finally decided to sit down and right up a post.
I have this strange performance issue; which can be easily observed with my mouse skipping on my screen. On my old machine I could easily duplicate the issue when non-youtube videos played in safari (normally small advertisement). If I opened that same page up in Chrome I didn't see the problem.
I didn't think to much of it, I switched to using chrome more on my Hack, and thought the issue would go away once I built a new machine.
Now that I built a whole new machine, around the 7700, did a fresh install of HS. I have a similar issue on a whole new machine.
On this machine, I don't know how to duplicate the issue. This issue just pops out of no where. Symptoms = mouse skipping, graphic jitter shown when watching video, viewing the screensaver, and so forth. The only way to resolve the issue, I have found is to reboot the computer. After that I'm back to normal, until it pops up again.

I don't know if the issue on my old machine, is even remotely correlated to what I'm seeing on my new machine, but the symptoms are similar.

A small recap: My old machine (Bios motherboard, i7 930, 2009/2010 spec machine), issue seems to be isolated to video playback (mostly ad's) in safari. Mouse skipping, video play back stuttering once that tab was closed, performance would be back to normal. If you open that same page in Chrome, no performance issue.
New machine, I haven't found a way to directly duplicate the issue. No rhyme or reason, mouse starts skipping, video play back stuttering, screensaver also stuttering (I think I had screensaver stutter on my old machine, however I don't remember). The only way to fix is a reboot.

What I think the issue maybe:
Nivida Web driver...
I didn't see these issues before we started using the Web Driver method on Hacks.
On my new machine I'm using the Lilu, and NvidiaGraphicsFixup kext. I have Lilu installed in the "EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13" and NvidiaGraphicsFixup installed in "/Library/Extensions..."

Has anyone else seen this issue? Has anyone resolved it?

I just switched to Onboard graphic, and all is well...
I guess I will just use my 1080ti, when I'm gaming in Windows.
