I have a HP OMEN laptop with Intel i7 CPU and Nvidia GTX 1050 GPU.
Running KDE Neon 5.12 with Plasma 5.12.4, x64 bit.
I have successfully installed the latest Nvidia Driver from the repository (driver version 384.111) and it seems to be performing well in games. The issue is Vsync specific to my laptops monitor. When I hook up an external monitor via HDMI, there is no tearing problems. However, on the laptop monitor it is very noticeable.
Things I have tried:
Set Display Compositor to the following:
- Scale Method = Accurate
- Rendering = OpenGL 3.1
- Tearing Prevention = Full Screen Repaints
Add KWIN_TRIPLE_BUFFER=1 to /etc/profile.d/kwin.sh
An additional thing I have noted that any changes made to xorg.conf are overridden at boot, replaced with the original values of the below:
Any assistance to resolving this would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT 1: If I export xorg.conf via the Nvidia x server tool, xorg.conf looks like this before reboot:
After the reboot it returns to the value in my original post.
Edit 2: It appears that the xorg.conf file has stuck with the Nvidia settings, has not resolved issue however.

Have you found a solution?
