Some users of Nvidia’s GeForce graphics cards are noticing serious performance issues after installing the Windows 11 2022 update (also known as Windows 11 22H2) that Microsoft released to the public earlier this week. ace reported by Bleeping Computeraffected users have experienced stutters, inconsistent frame rates, and slowdowns, even on fast PCs with modern components.

nvidia He says the problem is caused by some new Windows graphics debugging features that are enabled by mistake.

The company publicly acknowledged the problem and released a new beta version of the GeForce Experience software package that it says should fix the problem. This implies that the problem is with Nvidia’s additional software and not with the GeForce drivers themselves; if you install the drivers without 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 users and working outward. The company learned this lesson early in the Windows as a Service era, when issues like non-working webcams, data loss, and broken applications surfaced early in the public release process for significant feature updates.
