beware of the new update if you are using an Nvidia card

Some gamers using Nvidia graphics cards are complaining of drastic drops in performance and display issues with the new version of Windows 11, which Microsoft has started rolling out.

Windows 11 has started to implement its update 2022 (also known as 22H2) for Windows 11. But despite extensive internal testing and as part of the Windows Insider Program, operational issues can occur. This is the case for some users using Nvidia graphics cards. They share it on the Microsoft forums and Reddit. Thus, Internet user ChoPT shares his problems with his 3080 Ti:

“I had serious performance issues, especially in games (this also completely broke Gsync). It drops to around 30fps randomly from around 120fps, in non-graphically intense tests. The image does not wait to rip. »

He says he saw the same issues when he tried the Insider Preview.

Other users indicate in the microsoft forums slowdowns and stuttering effects on the screen, with CPU usage dropping from 60% to just 5% when gaming.

Nvidia began to react in Reddit under the guise of Manuel Guzmán, who handles customer relations (pseudo pidge2k):

“Can you share more details? What games? Do you have other apps running in the background? Do you have overlay software running in a game like Game Bar or GeForce Experience? »

It also asks users who encounter difficulties to complete a form, so that the manufacturer has as much data as possible to understand the cause of the problem and fix it. So we’ll have to be patient while we wait for a driver update, assuming Microsoft isn’t to blame. The other solution is to go back to the previous version of the operating system, if possible.

Keep in mind that the Windows 11 update rollout is gradual, so many users haven’t seen it appear on Windows Update yet. Also, some complain about the difficulties during the download and sometimes the error. 0x800f0806.

While the focus is currently on Windows 11, Microsoft hasn’t forgotten about Windows 10. The publisher just announced that the 22H2 update will be available in october. Remember that Windows 10 will continue to receive updates until October 14, 2025.
