Some users of Nvidia’s GeForce graphics cards are noticing serious performance issues after installing the Windows 11 2022 (aka Windows 11 22H2) update that Microsoft released earlier this week. As Bleeping Computer reports, affected users experience stuttering, inconsistent frame rates, and lags, even on fast PCs with modern components.
Nvidia says the problem is caused by some new graphics debugging features in Windows that are mistakenly enabled.
The company publicly acknowledged the problem and released a new beta version of the GeForce Experience software package which it claims should fix it. This implies that the issue is with Nvidia’s add-on software rather than the GeForce drivers themselves; if you installed the drivers without the GeForce Experience software, you may not have noticed the slowdown in the first place.
Bugs like these are why Microsoft rolls out major Windows updates in phases, starting with a small group of PCs and working outward. The company learned that lesson early in the Windows-as-a-Service era when issues like non-functional webcams, data loss, and broken apps surfaced early in the public rollout process for updates. important features.
