In September of this year, Microsoft released Windows 11 22H2, a functional update of its operating system. Now the software giant has confirmed that installing this update may cause performance degradation in some games and applications. Relevant message appeared one of the Microsoft sites.
“Some games and apps may not work as expected or may stutter on Windows 11 version 22H2.”Microsoft said in a statement.
This issue reportedly occurs when games accidentally enable debugging features for graphics card performance that are not intended for consumer use. What exactly triggers the performance debugging features is not specified.
Microsoft is already working on a patch that should fix performance issues in games. At this stage, users are encouraged to update affected games and applications, but this does not guarantee a solution to the problem. It did not say which graphics accelerators are affected by the problem.
Strangely, shortly after the release of Windows 11 22H2, complaints about reduced performance in games on computers with NVIDIA graphics cards began to appear. However, this issue has now been resolved as NVIDIA promptly released a patch to fix it.
