Hey guys,

Since when I updated to High Sierra (I updated as soon as it was released), I have been experiencing some lag (moving windows, browsing, minimizing windows) even when I only have Mail, Safari and Chrome open.

Very rarely I also see some graphic artifacts, which go away after a minute or so...

I have an EVGA GTX1080, the WebDriver are installed correctly and I should have graphic acceleration (I see UI transparency)

Kexts I currently have: AppleIntelE1000e, FakePCIID_Intel_HDMI_Audio, FakePCIID, FakeSMC_CPUSensors, FakeSMC, Lilu (latest), NvidiaGraphicsFixup

It is pretty annoying as this hackintosh is pretty new so I believe should have zero lag at all. :(

What could be wrong?

Yep this is a known issue and its a High Sierra bug.

Apple moved to Metal 2 for WindowServer and made a lot of changes under the hood. There's a few posts here about that. This issue also happens on real Macs that stilll use nVidia GPUs.

There's some type of memory leak. I hope it's fixed soon.

10.12.6 Sierra worked perfectly fine for me. I might get pissed and go back to that.

Nobody ever uploads any logs or any other kind of information on these threads.

I have been experiencing some lag (moving windows
Code:
log stream --info --predicate "process contains 'WindowServer'"
Code:
log stream --info --predicate "process contains 'Safari'"

Hi guys,

I have same problem and bug on high Sierra 10.13.3 with Asus GTX 670
When I open safari, chrome or firefox, I have strong slowdowns, and the other windows of the finder also.
When I start with the intel HD 630 graphics card built into my intel core i7 7700, everything is fluid and there is no such latency. I thought it was my gtx 670 that was not compatible with high sierra.
What is the solution to solve this problem?

Hi,
Finaly, I ended up returning to Sierra 10.12.6 and there everything is fluid again, fast, no latency. I wonder how did the people who installed high Sierra and who have no bug?

When I just close a Safari tab, it lags (among many other places of course) - Here's my logs surrounding the action:

There seems to be a 1.5-2.0s delay that occurs between "purging tab snapshots" and the resulting "Removed Application"...
