Your installation is borked.

From Mint manual:

[i]If your graphics card is from NVIDIA, once in Linux Mint, perform the following steps to install the NVIDIA drivers:

Run the Driver Manager
Choose the NVIDIA drivers and wait for them to be installed
Reboot the computer[/i]

Uninstall NVIDIA drivers first.

sudo nvidia-uninstall

Great, it works! Thanks for your suggestion.

Now also in chrome://gpu everything appears as accelerated except for the following, that I guess it’s a Linux limitation, am I correct?

Video Decode: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable
Video Encode: Software only, hardware acceleration unavailable

Accelerated video decode is unavailable on Linux: 137247
Disabled Features: accelerated_video_decode
Accelerated video encode is unavailable on Linux
Disabled Features: accelerated_video_encode

Install libva-vdpau-driver for hardware dec/enc accel.
