    I downloaded the Creators Update (15063.13) using the media creation tool.....and the microstuttering is somewhat fixed....I do get the slight freeze in the Windows GUI when the laptop starts up or wakes from sleep once, then after that it is gone. I still have a slight freeze when installing programs though. I am dissapointed the issue is not completely gone, but still a lot better than before, a lot smoother and less annoying.

    Update: I disabled UAC so that I won´t get the slight freezes when installing a program, and indeed it is gone. Also, with the Creators Update I don´t get the slight freezes when changing the background picture using slideshow.

    Interesting, now we just need more confirmations from others on the new build.

    Perhaps we can assume that it's likely the issue cannot be fully eliminated except improved due to hardware design limitation. GPU <-> IGD <-> Int./Ext. Display.

    I really hope MSI (and other manufacturers) fix their designs, then. The Dell XPS 15 has Optimus and was never affected by this issue.

    Open Nvidia Control Panel --> "Adjust image settings with preview" and don't close it.
    This will keep the dGPU always on (The green Nvidia logo preview forces the dGPU to stay on and render the frames). I have been doing it for more than a week with my GE63VR, and I have zero microstutters.
