SMDH at Apple and Nvidia. :rolleyes:
I just noticed, that GeForce works better, but now my MacBook wont switch to integrated graphics anymore. It displays GPU dedendency "displaypolicyd 94".
Its possible to make graphics switchable with these kexts?

It's unlikely because switchable graphics are really supported on non-Apple hardware which is the target audience for these types of kexts.

I'm another happy camper with the latest NvidiagraphicsFixup and lilu working great. I'm able to play iTunes movies as well. Been a long time since I've been able to do that!

i can confirm that with the latest driver, NvidiaGraphicsFixUp and lilu, the UI lag is completely gone. But i also have seen the random glitches/corruptions mentioned by many ppl here. I have CUDA installed, but the glitch could happen any time no matter what apps are being used. sometimes it could happen even when using slack.

Hey all,
Glad to hear there are fixes for the lag issues, I had reverted to 10.13.2 with 106 nvidia drivers since updating and getting the lag issues.
I had also logged an issue with nVidia on the lag and after a bunch of back and forth with their support person, eventually it got escalated to the engineering team and I got this response:
"Thanks for the details. I've discussed this with our development team and we are aware of this performance issue and currently investigating. We've been able to confirm the issue in our lab as well as reports of color corruption. Our development team is actively investigating both issues and we hope to provide a fix in a future driver update. Thanks again for bring these issues to our attention."
They also did mention that they have seen the reports in these forums. So maybe they do care about the hackintosh community after all :)

Hey!

I still got the lag issue with the latest drivers and the latest `NvidiagraphicsFixup` that is supposed to fix this issue, BUT after enabling SIP completely Im getting a butter smooth experience! 3440x1400 at 100hz with my monitor. I thought I should share this. It would be interesting is someone else can confirm.

I am using latest Nvidia drivers, latest lilu kext and nvidia fixup kext with my 980 ti on fresh 10.13.4 installation and things are well until the screensaver kicks in or the system turns off the displays because of idle time. When I log in after that, the system is extremely laggy when it comes to graphics - even windows dragging looks like 1fps. Any ideas?

Another separate issue is that the system is unable to survive a night of sleep - every morning I find it with one monitor turned off, one turned on but displaying black and full speed fans on GPU (I think), not reacting to mouse, keyboard - only reset and normal boot fixes it. Testing sleep/wake on short periods works fine, the machine wakes up just fine. Again, any ideas?
