Microsoft has confirmed the latest Windows 11 22H2 will lead to a lower-than-expected gaming performance.Now, Microsoft blocked a major feature upgrade on some PCs due to potential gaming and performance issues.
Microsoft has removed Windows 11 version 22H2 from Windows Update servers on selected devices after confirming the gaming performance issues on Windows 11 computers. The company says it’s working on another cumulative update to address the issue and will release it in the near future.
Windows 11 version 22H2 was released in September as part of the normal feature update,in order to support all Windows versions. This is the first major feature update for Windows 11, and it comes with a lot of features,and that is why many users are rushing to download it.
In the document, Microsoft acknowledged a statement from Nvidia that Windows 11 accidentally turned on GPU performance tuning.
One of the most frustrating issues with Windows 11 is affecting gamers, with some users complaining that their FPS drops when they play games. Uninstalling the update solved the problem, confirming speculation that the problem was a feature upgrade.
Windows 11 22H2 made games perform poorly, audio was also affected, and some people noticed frequent stuttering.
Nvidia has been investigating these reports, and they’ve also released two official fixes via GeForce app and driver updates, but the chipmaker’s efforts haven’t been enough.
After ignoring the reports for weeks, Microsoft is now actively investigating the issue, and the company has pulled the update for affected machines.
The tech giant said it was working on a cumulative update and warned users not to use the “Update Now” button or the media creation tool to manually upgrade until the issue is resolved.
Microsoft allegedly ignored the reports
Windows Insiders have been testing feature upgrades for months, and some testers flagged the issue earlier this year.
