High Sierra (macOS 10.13) GPU rendering issues with RGB document - Intel Graphics
Illustrator 21.1.0 has issues with GPU rendering in the latest High Sierra public betas:
Paths will appear jagged and generally do not display correctly.
Altering the zoom level affects these artefacts.
Switching off GPU rendering altogether fixes the issue but this way, performance is obviously affected.
Additional Note: Works correctly in CMYK document.
the issue has been resolved by Appple in macOSX 10.13.4
Please upgrade to resolve the issue

I am having the same issue (jagged edges that appear on vector objects. Happens a lot when using blend modes), and it's awful.

Please let me know whether you are facing problem on RGB or CMYK document?
I am still having this problem 10.13.6 Beta
I still have a problem with the rendering while running 10.13.4 Any suggestions?
Fixed with macOS upgrade. It was crazy to be working with this bug.
This is still not fixed and is extremely frustrating! It used to fix itself if I changed color modes but no more. What is the solution to this problem? It is significantly slowing down my productivity.
Do not update to OSX 10.13.5. Illustrator CC 2017 not responsive and very slow.. I downloaded CC 2018 to see if the problem persisted and it did. I had to restore back to 10.13.4 and that worked fine.
This is not fixed. Illustrator 22.1, and OSX 10.13.5.
A placed 1-bit image that is rotated still reproduces the issue. The same exact 1-bit placed into an Ill 2017 document, and rotated, does not produce the error.
the adobe illustrator cc2017 has different problems like:
1- Paths will appear jagged and generally do not display correctly inRGB
2- when i work on illustrator some time the computer freeze, so i can't save or quit until i restart my computer again.
@bernardo gomez your issue would be something else other than being discussed on this thread. Please get in touch with our support

I have new MacBook Pro with High Sierra 10.13.4, just downloaded Creative suite and have this issue. broken vectors, specifically when applying transparent overlays. RGB or CMYK no difference.
It works now ! Thank you very much!
Since 22.1 update I am having issues with this, every Illustrator file opens with black screen until I manually switch to CPU.

I can confirm you Apple is still working with Intel on CMYK issues
problem still there in CMYK and using radial gradients in a heavy file
Nope, I have encountered the same problem after upgrade.
Here is the proof file.

Thanks to the Apple iOS update, tested today morning and problem resolved!
RGB document back to Ai finally! Yeeeeaa
Well, the issue seems to be resolved.
Mine does this also... very irritating
That doesn’t seem right. I have a 2016 15” base model with dedicated graphics card and it works flawlessly. I had this issue with a 2016 13” model before trading it for the 15” model. I thought the issue was with the integrated graphics card along with some older dedicated graphics cards.
