Hi, supplement your question with output of inxi -SGxxxz and use Ctrl+K or 'preformatted code' button to make these details more readable.

Try updating GPU driver (consider removing current one and switching to RPMFusion one for easier maintenance).

Is this freezing constant? Does pressing Alt+Shift+F12 improve cursor's performance?

Test if using different rendering backends (in Plasma settings) help. Here's more about them.
