macOS High Sierra will deliver new video and graphics technologies that will lay the groundwork for even more improvements to macOS down the line, according to Apple. The big additions in High Sierra include Apple File System (APFS), support for High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), and an all-new version of Metal - simply called Metal 2 - which will allow Apple's advanced graphics tech to power even more Mac apps, including machine learning and VR-based content.

Apple also mentioned that macOS' window manager will run on Metal 2. As always, be sure to take a peek at Apple's official High Sierra page.

I wish I knew what it was.

It's an integrated Intel "GPU" not a discrete one.

Full screen on an external monitor 4K (scaled) using Thunderbolt DisplayPort ...

.. If I kill apps it doesn't improve. If I power cycle it runs better.

Yet my cheap Thinkpad connected to the same monitor with works fine with player on Linux.
