Hey guys, little update for you. Things were going swimmingly with the XPS 15 9550 and so I thought that I'd upgrade to the most powerful machine I could get to last the longest amount of time before I need to upgrade again. Mistake. I sold my 9550 and bought the 9560 - had it for less than a week now and my searing migraines, eye strain and headaches are back with a vengeance.
I'm working on trying to find a solution - so far I'm not convinced it's the Intel drivers that are causing the problem here, I think the dithering may in fact be coming from the GTX 1050 (old laptop was GTX 960) and I feel that when I disable the 1050 in Device Manager the laptop becomes more usable. Only time will tell with this however as once my headaches and migraines have been triggered it takes a while for my head to go back to normal sadly.
I should really have just stuck with the 9550 but it was too tempting to upgrade to the latest and greatest to get the longest possible life out of a working machine. Couple of questions:
have we ever actually discovered how to disable temporal dithering for Nvidia cards in Windows? I know it's disabled by default on most but I have a sneaking suspicion that it might be enabled on the 10xx series.
can anyone else verify this same situation has happened to them? I know everyone has slightly different issues but mine is very much a sensitivity to temporal dithering (and a little just to bright light itself).
Any help or thoughts would be great, can't believe I'm back to square one again!
