Tearing and visual artefacts
This has already been reported against Fedora, and was fixed in later versions of clutter. Bugzilla #1081625 references the simple patch that fixes the issue.
This patch has been tested as applied the EL7 SRPM and is confirmed as working. The fault is definitely with clutter and not with nvidia.
Patch looks available in clutter-1.20.0-4.el7 under rhel7.2 beta
As noted in comment 2, this was resolved in RHEL-7.2.
