The video stutters and skip frames when playing 50fps videos (1080p or 4k) on youtube LENOVO X1 EXTREME with 4k monitor. I have an external 4k monitor as well.
I'm using google chrome browser and tried playing firefox. Internet speed is not an issue here.
No issue when playing 30fps 4k video on youtube.

Yea, I tried with external monitor plugged in and unplugged.
CPU and internal graphics card isn't near full load at all. Without the video playing, background CPU load is low: <5%.
I just came across another topic with similar issue that suggested changing display setting in bios to discrete. It worked, no stuttering. But that means the graphics card is doing all the work now. I wonder how that would translate to battery life.
