  1. Since I installed 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.
