After a few updates in drivers and windows 10..
The notebook started to freeze or stutter in some games and apps for 1-3 secs, then keeps running smooth as always ..
Any advice that anyone could provide?

    Hi, Does it stutter/freezes when you open simple programs? But then it goes away and come back?
    When you right-click on your desktop, does it hang a bit? 

    If so, it could be the dgpu that most people are facing.

    There is one simple program to download and install. that runs in background and solves your problem. until intel and Nvidia will decide to solve it... TraypwrD3

    I noticed this when my laptop was running on battery. I had turned on battery saver right from 100% to see how long it would fare, and while the battery saver was on, it was freezing for a couple of seconds even for something as simple as opening a tab in fire fox.

    I re-downloaded and updated all the Drivers I had, still getting this stutters for some moments .. but not often as they were..
    Looks like the Intel Graphics sometimes works over the Nvidia GPU, and that mess up the things

    Hi guys, I have the same problem
    I solved it just by moving games from HDD drive to SSD drive...
    it works, no longer frozen while playing
    but I still don't know what the exact reason is.

    It seems like your HDD is going bad... I would recommend doing deep scan for any possible bad sectors. Also loading on SSD would improve load times by leaps, and so you'll find lesser load related lags.

    On mine, i made a partition for games on my SSD, along with an existing one on my HDD, and installed/moved games that cause more load to SSD.
