Public bug reported:
This driver update makes (official) Chrome very laggy for me. While
lagging, it causes sound and mouse movement to glitch out; the whole
machine feels hung up. Other applications feel laggier, but it might be
imagination. The Chrome effect is real and serious.
There's some discussion of this in various apps for various people on the
Running Chrome with `--no-sandbox` significantly improves the state of
the Chrome issue for me, as suggested in that thread. chromium-browser
and Firefox do glitch slightly, but nowhere near as badly as official

Steps to reproduce, for me:
1. Install official google-chrome-stable from Google.
2. Visit Google Maps: https://maps.google.com/
3. Enable Satellite, or Birds Eye view.
Whole machine appears to stutter and lag.
I'm running a desktop desktop 1050Ti, a very popular card. i3wm (i.e. no
compositing). btrfs /home.
