Default New Kitkat update causes S-Pen laggy issue?

Am I the only person who is experiencing the pen lag after the Kitkat update?
My S-Pen seemed to be much more responsive with Jelly Bean. Now I am experiencing this micro lag while I'm writing on my tab. It's driving me nuts. Anybody notices the same issue?...
If so, share some solutions. I never post or ask questions on any forums, but I really had to ask you guys. Thanks.

Not bring a Kitty Kat fan, there is little I rejoice over. However, the lag of the pen in this sense has not hit me yet.

For me, S Note and S Pen are a lot faster on 4.4. For that matter, everything is faster on 4.4.

Default kk s-pen lag

Ok update ticked the 'force gpu rendering setting in developer options (which I immediately felt the effects of in lecture notes, as it made scrolling smoother and writing much larger). Unthinking the box fixed the problem for me.
I don't recall if I had to reboot or not to see the effects, though.

I don't know if it's just the s pen but my scrolling is really jerky and hyper fast after the update. . It's like accelerated scrolling and is way too sensitive, not smooth at all
