I rebuild my office production machine today. Fresh install of High Sierra with a GTX 970.
I have two identical system for my office and home; i7-6700k, Z170X, 32GB DDR4, SSD SATA and M.2, GTX 970,
OSXWiFi 802.11/Bluetooth 4.0. I use 2-4 monitors mostly. 3 in my office.

10.13.3 was not ok! A bit laggy. Updating a copy of 10.12.6 was MUCH worse!
10.13.2 is perfect!

Everything works. Premiere Pro runs very fast with CUDA.
Entire system is very quick and responsive.
I tried to get .3 to work but nothing worked. Not worth it!
Maybe .4 will be better. Definitely a video driver issue.

Kept my serial number, iCloud is perfect.

My only issue is with a 2TB RAID array and a single 8TB storage drive(s). Permissions are all messed up. Simple to fix but its not taking! Ive done this a 100 times too. Not sure what the issue is, even after an hour of reading.
I also have an M.2 storage drive for video work and it was fine but it was freshly formatted a few days ago APFS.
Im moving 1.4TB of data off the array and will reformat and see but it won't allow apps cache or write. Odd!
Applying new permissions appears to work but its goes by in seconds instead of minutes as it should and nothing changes.

Not sure where to post about this:
At any folder or drive root. Permission are set to read only and "Fetching..." for a user for read & write. Deleting the lost user and adding Admin and making them read & write then Apply to enclosed items simply doesn't work :-/ At that root it seems to have worked but going one level in shows it doesn't. WTF?!

Hey,

1) AFAIK, the artifacts (or glitch, whatever you call it) issue is not resolved. I am one of the few people affected by the issue, I am still stuck on Sierra.

2) I don't think there is much difference. If your graphics card is one of the problematic ones, just stick with Sierra. Other than that, I think procedure will be almost the same.

3) The most important change I can think of is that, file system change. Apple switch from HFS+ to APFS with High Sierra. But no worries, if you are a regular user you wouldn't notice the difference between two.

4) This is a lil bit problematic, yes. I keep at least two latest versions on USB thumb drives just to be safe. If not, I would probably search online for shared images uploaded by other people.

Hi, just checking in to see if there has been any progress on this. Has this issue been solved?

How is your post not completely off-topic? Seriously. In addition, your attempt at highjacking this thread, with your off-topic question, needs it's own, new post.

It has not and my guess, at this point, is that it never will be. It's probably time to buy a nice AMD card.
