Flicker/Choppy dragging windows Advanced Optimus

Starting from nvidia driver v522+ enabling Gpu only mode with Atvanced Optimus I get shuttering/choppy dragging and scrolling windows on my laptop (Windows 10) last working version is v517.48. Enabling dedicated gpu in bios solves issue but eats my battery when not gaming, so I wonder if anybody else experience same issue and maybe found some workarounds rather than downgrading to 517.48?

if this is common maybe razer could escalate this issue to Nvidia

My spec:
Razer Blade 15 Advanced (2021) - RZ09-0367x Windows 10 Home
display: 1440p 240hz (g-sync)
cpu: 10th Gen Intel®️ Core™️ i7-10875H
gpu: RTX 3070 Mobile (8 GB DDR6 VRAM) with Advanced Optimus
ram: 32gb

Sounds like old Optimus bug, maybe try updating intel hd driver using intel update utility, or upgrading your windows to 11, maybe not related since my blade 15 2018 doesn’t have advanced Optimus but works without issues on windows 11.
