Interesting how Intel Power Gadget reacts to the lag
As I do not feel .103 lags with 10.13.4,
what kind of your uses caused your charts (games, internet/office use, heavy applications, bench ?)

The link between IPG processor charts and discrete GPU lag issue is not clear to me - Is there explanations about it ?

Things like closing safari tabs lagging a lot, also mission control, and desktops switches. Compare to old .106 driver new .103 suck so much for me.

Hmm this broke my Nvidia audio over DP. I had previously used NvidiaGraphicsFixup / Lilu to fix this. Is there a new method to fix audio?

If the lag is still there, the game is over.

nVidia has to update WindowServer to support Metal and don't think they will dedicate resources to do that.

Apple needs to push them and give them incentive somehow. This is ridiculous.

I remember someone contacted Jensen Huang (CEO) of nVidia before, can they do the same again regarding this issue?

Now that eGPU is officially supported, nVidia needs to take the incentive and support Metal properly.

This is the reason I moved to AMD for now.
Trust me, if nvidia didn't support window server acceleration, You'd know. You have booted up with drivers disabled before right?
What's clearly happening with 387 drivers for some machines is clearly a bug, not "lazy nividia not supporting accelerated window server". Don't spread misinformation.

I don't understand why whenever new Nvidia drivers are released tonymacx86 posts the same (tweaked) pre-canned release announcement as if nothing is wrong. No disrespect to tonymacx86 as I'd be lost without this site, but have any of the last few Nvidia releases been useful to anyone? Why continue to announce these new releases with no mention that they are basically useless to this community? Please excuse me if I'm missing something here but I'm confused at best by the current situation with Nividia in the Hackintosh world.

Because I can use them on my GTX 9xx series cards w/o any problems, like others with the same cards. Additionally, it appears to be a Skylake and newer system problem for the GTX 10x0 cards.

Thanks for clearing that up for me Stork. Seems like there should be at least a mention of the problem in tonymacx86's Nvidia Driver announcement posts as Skylake CPUs and GTX 10x0 cards are at the top of this sites "Buyer's Guide". Nobs such as myself must get tripped up by this on a daily basis. Thanks again for your hard work.

Obviously nVidia drivers aren't optimized for High Sierra.

Have you actually used HS + nVidia GPU with real world applications like Adobe Photoshop/AfterEffects/Premiere/Illustrator?

Good luck with that. Don't spread misinformation since are most likely a hobbyist.
