I have no freezes on my Asus (quite similar to yours, same Nvidia, plus
intel, but with 4G and normal display of 1920 x 1080) and, because
kernel does not recognize the touchpad, tried 4.3 and 4.4 kernel.
I was not able to make them boot to GUI, only to konsole, probably
of the installed nvidia-drivers (via suse-prime).
I was not able to install suse-prime successfully with those newer
I haven't tried a new kernel yet.
New data point is that Gnome desktop ran okay for two days. I rebooted
back to Plasma 5 and KDE 4x desktops and the freezes are back.
Any desktop wisdom in this case?
Have look at Systemsettings - Display and Monitor - Compositor. When set to
Xrender, wife's laptop freezes on and off, when set to OpenGL3.1 these
don't happen. BTW. No NVIDIA or AMD involved, but Intel HD4000
