So this started happening a couple of weeks ago, seems to appear mostly after the screen goes to sleep or after locking the laptop, happens both when it's plugged into power and when it's not. I'm not sure if it's a software or hardware problem, in the case of the latter I'm guessing I will have to send it back to warranty. If anybody know anything more about this problem any help is highly appreciated.

I have everything updated, including the newest windows 10 2004 updates and nvidia updates so that's not it. I also figured out that it's not a display issue, since I plugged in another monitor through HDMI and the artifacts appeared on that screen as well so I'm thinking it's something to do with the GPU. While under load eg. when playing a game on max settings, there are absolutely no problems and everything is smooth. This glitchy thing only seems to appear after the laptop goes to sleep and is woken up again. Hope this info helps you with providing me a good solution.
