Some users of Nvidia’s GeForce graphics cards have noticed serious performance issues after installing the Windows 11 2022 (also known as Windows 11 22H2) update that Microsoft released to the public earlier this week. As reported by Bleeping Computer, affected users experience stuttering, inconsistent frames, and lags, even on fast computers with modern components.

Nvidia says the problem is caused by some new Windows graphics debugging features being enabled by mistake.

company Publicly acknowledge the problem And it released a new beta version of the GeForce Experience software package that it says should be fixed. This means that the problem is with the Nvidia plug-in rather than the GeForce drivers themselves; If you installed drivers without GeForce Experience, you might not have noticed the slowdown in the first place.

Bugs like this are why Microsoft rolls out major Windows updates in stages, starting with a small group of PCs and working abroad. The company learned this lesson early in the Windows as a Service era when issues such as non-functional webcams, data loss, and malfunctioning apps surfaced early in the public rollout of important feature updates.
