    Anybody else facing screen distortion & freezing issue on High Sierra?

    I am facing this issue ever since I upgraded to High Sierra. I usually face it while using a browser, Safari and Chrome both.

    I have attached a screenshot of the issue. स्क्रीन शॉट, २०१७-०९-१९ अ ८.०१.५९ पर.png

    EDIT:

    My Macbook Pro model is Early 2013.

    Mid 2012, that means we have same specification. I also had issue with 'Automatic Graphic Switching', when it was turned on, Macbook usually freezed and never resumed and reboots after some time. I have turned 'Automatic Graphic Switching' off and that issue seems to be gone now but I had to compensate with battery life. :(

    I think there is a hardware issue with this Macbook model. There is a replacement program: https://www.apple.com/in/support/macbookpro-videoissues/ but Apple has always rejected my request whenever I tried to apply.

    As for this problem, like you suggested I have reset NVRAM and SMC. So far, it looks good but let's how long I can remain happy.

    I reset my NVRAM and SMC yesterday and so far I haven't crashed.

    That replacement program is for when your GPU fails. I had my unit replaced under that warranty. It's for the hardware failure where your discrete Nvidia GPU no longer works.

    As for the replacement program, the page says:
