    Still getting stuttering Windows animations here on latest driver.
    But doesn't seem to happen as often as on older drivers, sometimes when I switch displays its fine after a minute or two or sometimes it keeps stuttering until reboot.

    Have you double checked it's gone in switchable mode?

    You mean MSHybrid? yes it's in MSHybrid mode and uses Intel card for integrated display then Nvidia for external display.

    So if I bring the laptop back home and plug in external display it has the stuttering in Windows animations (but not always, sometimes might be fine), otherwise reboot while on external display to fix it.
    No stuttering while using integrated display on Intel, i've always kept it on MSHybrid.

    So if you move the animations to the internal panel they look fine?

    Give it a go, I'd be interested if it impacts the other with the G-sync panel plugged in.

    #ForTheRecord:
    I have just updated to 388 Nvidia drivers and I'm getting screen blinking on 3x of my 1440p screens when nvidia surround is enabled and G-Sync being turned off every 3 minutes or so... My 4th top centre 1080p accessory screen (which is not connected to the nvidia surround surround settings) never blinks. This 4th 1080p screen is not G-sync compatible by the way... weird.
    I might have to roll back a driver...

    Edit: Just updated to 388.13 and the blinking has stopped :)

    After a while of gaming on my external monitor I can safely say the latest drivers finally fixed the issues, hands down. Well done, everyone.

    As far as I can tell, it doesn't happen while extending displays, but then the system is capped at 60hz (even tho Nvidia is set to 144hz).
    This is on MSHybrid, so Intel is driving internal, Nvidia driving external at the same time (extending).

    But the stuttering while on Windows is defo still not fixed on latest drivers (using only external display after switching displays)

    EDIT: Actually I think there may still be some stuttering on the external display while extended, just harder to notice at 60hz than 144hz.

    ok so further testing, I've set the external gsync monitor as the primary, integrated screen as secondary (extending).
    MSHybrid (external powered by Nvidia, internal by Intel).
    the external correctly runs at 144hz and the internal at 60hz, but it still requires a reboot while using external for it to be properly 100% smooth, if you unplug / change displays it will stutter on the external display until reboot.
