    Release itself also had an issue without any beta ever being installed, seems that running it in Dx11 compatibility mode by default fixed that as well.

    OK tested it, doesn't work... it still got stutter issues

    EDIT: disabled Game Bar and turned off HAGS, but still had to restart to take effect... only tomorrow will check after first start.

    EDIT2: update on the issue, just started the computer first time this morning, and ran the game...
    NO issues as far as I can see... let's hope it stays that way :)

    Did you by any chance use NVCPL Low Latency Mode while HAGS was enabled?
    On the other hand, it could be assumed that HAGS might not work as expected with some laptop configurations, never had issues with it on my build, only in the past when engaging Low Latency Mode so didn't touch that again afterwards.

    As for disabling the Game Bar, it shouldn't contribute to anything that impacts performance, disabling the recording/broadcast features should be enough.

    The low latency mode is off, haven't touched it...
    Guess it was HAGS, and maybe with fast startup off it made the difference...
    Thanks!

    Need a new hotfix or better a new GRD, but LAPSU$ probably hacked Nvidia's brain as well

    Since it's based on Pascal, MX230 is probably better of with an older driver.
    No point in using the latest with fixes and updates for new AAA games, can't really run those anyway.
    Which version does Lenovo offer?

    442 is rather old, I would try drivers between 472.12 and 497.29, should be something in between there that works flawless.
    I'm not sure around if it is best to use the drivers issued by Lenovo though, since in some cases they do add a few tweaks.

    @Astyanax
    What do you think when it comes to such laptop chips that do come with Optimus support, any of the older releases from Nvidia or use what Lenovo provides?

    I've got no idea what the heck lenovo does to their devices, but just about every other reference driver doesn't work on their notebooks

    Yeah, they have the ugly tendency to lock things down for their devices. :(

    Not fully, the best laptops we have are old T5xx models, no other laptops have been as reliable, especially when it comes to battery life and hinges that last.
    On the other hand, those are not meant for gaming either.

    I had 472.12 on my PC for a while before updating to later drivers, and overall was fine...
    maybe I should check it out?
