    Since I installed 30.0.101.1191 on the MSI P75 Creator 9SF with this Intel graphic card: Intel® UHD Graphics 630 I can indicate that I can no longer use windows 11 normally.

    As soon as you scroll through linkedin/facebook with your mouse or want to fill in input fields, the screen flickers from completely black (milliseconds) and back okay again and it all stutters for a while (several milliseconds) to work normally again.

    That flickering and stuttering will drive you crazy. So I’m going to uninstall (rollback) this version.

    I have this version of the driver: https://i.imgur.com/qUJNcDA.png
    with rollback reverted to: https://i.imgur.com/MeklDG6.png

    Now everything is back to normal.

    Anyone have an idea how to bring this issue to intel or anyone who knows which driver for Intel® UHD Graphics 630 on MSI P75 Creator 9SF runs best?

    1. Jordan van Bergen

      I had to disable hardware acceleration to not have this strange overlay and flickering in Chrome: https://imgur.com/a/IbUQ8aA

      So this driver has really messed up my system but as I use 80% my internet browser the above “fix” did the trick but of course you would like to have hardware acceleration.
