Look for AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext in n System Profiler - Software - Extensions.

First: the command, which you need to type (copy/paste) in terminal app:

sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/ /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.disable

Second: after the reboot, you'll have to wait until the monitor goes into sleep mode (It is very important!). That's it! Use your mac in normal mode. There are no lags and choppy animation anymore! Enjoy it!
