Hi, has anyone experienced laggy or choppy video playback with the G501JW when viewing Youtube videos in HD or Netflix in Chrome? Every time I try to watch a video in 720p, 1080p or higher the framerate drops terribly and makes it unwatchable, which is pretty embarrassing considering my old 2011 Macbook Air had no problem with video playback.

I have the latest Geforce drivers installed and I think I have everything updated, but perhaps there's a trick to get this running properly?

Yes and yes, so it's a known issue? Any workaround?

unfortunately for now we have to wait the intel driver to be updated. you can see that many user post so much bug in the intel forum,
really the workaround for now is none, but some user says turning off hardware acceleration helps.
