New Windows 11 Update 22H2 isn’t Good For Gaming Community

Windows updates are known to bring new issues while fixing old ones, and the latest is no different. Tech blog Bleeping Computer reported that the latest Windows 11 update (Windows 11 22H2) that arrived earlier this week is causing serious performance issues in video games.

Several affected users have reported that games have stuttering, inconsistent frame rates, and lag since installing the latest update. It affects people even at the latest and greatest gaming gigs with high-end hardware.

Nvidia quickly clarified the issue, announcing that it stems from a new Windows graphics debugging feature that was inadvertently enabled. The American hardware manufacturer has already released and publicly announced a patch to fix the problem.

According to Nvidia, the latest GeForce Experience beta should fix the problem. Some people in the comments section have confirmed that the update worked.

You can download the update from the link shared in the following tweet:

The presence of this issue implies that it is related to additional Nvidia software and not to the GeForce drivers themselves. So if you downloaded your drivers manually without GeForce Experience, you might not have encountered the performance issue in the first place.

This is one of the main reasons Microsoft releases its new updates in phases, only making them available to a small group of people before rolling them out to others. This is a lesson the software maker learned in the days of Windows as a Service when new updates caused major problems like broken apps, data loss, webcams not working, and more.

If you are one of the victims of the new Windows 11 update, we recommend you get the latest GeForce Experience beta to fix the problem.
