Steps to solve Lagging on Chromium-based Web Browsers
Recent Intel® UHD Graphics 770 Drivers for 12th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors cause Edge* and Chrome* browsers to lag severely. The browsers behave like they are semi-frozen. Click response delay is 2 seconds, scrolling is severely delayed and choppy.
The issue can be replicated by opening a lot of tabs at once or scrolling and clicking around and using a mechanical hard disk drive (HDD)
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
- Update the browser to the latest version.
- Update Windows® to the latest version and run any pending updates.
- Try a Clean Installation of Intel® Graphics Drivers in Windows using the latest customized driver offered by the motherboard manufacturer (OEM) or using the Intel® generic drivers available on our Download Center.
- Disable Hardware Acceleration on the browser or switch from an HDD (mechanical Hard Disk Drive) to an SSD (Solid State Drive).
