Increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DP Driver 8.0 Update.

I have increased Mouse lag since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink Driver 8.0 Update. I have a 3-screen Setup here. Surface Pro 3 + the DisplayLink USB Docking Station with 2 additional Screens. Working on those 2 external Screens got a bit tedious since the W10 Redstone / DisplayLink 8.0 Update. Maybe I´m too sensitive, but I feel enough mouse lag on the external Screens to slow down my daily work a bit. I´m using the DisplayLink Adapter since 2 years now and there were highs and lows regarding lag, but Version 7.9 on Windows 10 1511 was really good. Now with the new Windows / Driver Version (and the new Driver model?) it got worse.

    may be coincidence but I've seen crazier ... so as Michael McDaniel commented · 14 November, 2016 ... I downloaded the compatibility checker, ran it .. and my mouse lag disappeared..

    WTF microsoft .. what did you screw up? and just for the record ... I'm *not* using DisplayLink on this machine! Its never touched this machine. I do have it on my Dell 7559 but even there I don't use the Display link with my Dell 3100 very often ..

    wow .. just wow..


    Edit: well at least for a little while... went away, came back .. mouse lag :(

    ARGH. Finally got my displaylink to work with the latest drivers. Then literally 2 hrs later Windows comes along with another useless update and I'm back to a lagging mouse. This is recent with the very latest windows update. Guess I'm back to waiting for the 8.0 M4 update for it to resolve again. :(

    One thing I have noticed is that I have 2 display link adapters one at home and one at work - the one I use at work is a older Belkin one designed with a laptop stand this works perfectly. the one I have at home is a Dell D3100. Unfortunately the dell adapter is horribly slow and laggy. in comparison to the one at work. Any ideas why this is the Dell one is much newer so should be much more capable.

    I am having the same issue with Dell XPS13 and Plugable UD-ULTCDL. Mouse lag is horrible and video stutters. All drivers and Windows is up-to-date.

    I have one screen on the laptop and 4 external screens over separate display links.
    The video tearing/not refreshing is now fixed with the latest fast ring Microsoft Win 10 update (Finally!!) , but mouse lag is still very visible on the display link connected monitors even with v8.2 installed.
    Please improve this as I never had issues before the anniversary update.

    I am experiencing slow wireless mouse and keyboard issues, using Windows 10 1607 and the last driver for Display Link. Please fix the issue. It is really annoying

    Display Link 8.1.843.0

    Since the anniversary update, I've not been able to watch video. The lag/choppiness is intolerable. Amazing that this has not been fixed.

    I have a lagless experience with a wired mouse and a lagging experience with a wireless mouse when simultaneously connected to a laptop. The wired mouse is plugged into the docking station (Targus USB3.0 DV2K Dock w Power) and the wireless mouse directly into the laptop (in turn plugged into the docking station). If I unplug the laptop from the docking station, I have no problem with the wireless mouse.

    Agree with the comments below, 8.0 m3 was abysmal with win10 x64 build 1607, the 8.1 alpha helps the lag and visual glitches but it still has very high CPU usage and you can easily bog down the machine with mundane tasks.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    8.1apha is certainly better than 8.0, but still no as good as previous versions. There are definitely still times when the system slows down.

  • earth9 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    this laggy mouse situation has been half cleared by the 8.1.Alpha.
    it looks much better than previous version of DisplayLink drivers but still shows uncomfortable performance problem.
    it's not just a mouse pointer problem.
    maybe whole system performance affected by video data update on displaylink device.

    8.0 M3 drivers still very poor performance with Win 10. The fan on my Surface Pro 4 is running constantly when I'm docked. Mouse is laggy. Outlook application has redraw and graphics issues.

    Needs BIG improvement.

    I really don't understand this 'DisplayLink' guys doing something to support their users.
    They are really don't feel whats wrong with their product.
    Even this unacceptable situation comes from Windows 10 AU or device manufacturers, they have to help to find out solutions for their customers.
    the 8.0 M3 driver still not the solution for this situation.

    I am having major issues with the slow update of the display and a little bit of mouse lag since the anniversary update to Win 10. Before this update the system ran really well. Now the screens often don't update the content properly like clicking between emails in outlook. The screen partially updates but other parts don't and you get broken messages, you think you have clicked on things (which you have) but the screen hasn't updated until you scroll up/down or minimize/maximize windows. This is killing me at work with my 4-monitor setup. Please make this update a priority as it is driving me crazy
