Fixed several performance issues, Microsoft continues the push of Windows 11 22H2

According to Bleepingcompter, Microsoft has now restarted the push of Windows 11 22H2 after fixing several performance issues, especially those related to game lag.

As another big update of Windows 11, 22H2 was originally pushed in early October, but in mid-November, Microsoft received a lot of feedback, which pointed out that the 22H2 update caused frame drops and delays in some games and other issues. According to Microsoft’s investigation, this is caused by these games inadvertently enabling the performance debugging function of the GPU. In order to ensure the user experience of non-upgraded users, Microsoft launched Safeguard holds, a function that judges whether updates should be delayed based on collected device data, and postponed the update push of some affected devices.

With the launch of the Microsoft KB5020044 patch, Microsoft announced that they have resolved these performance issues and removed Safeguard holds on December 14. Now all affected devices should be able to update to the latest Windows 11 22H2.”This issue was resolved in KB5020044 and the safeguard hold has been removed as of December 14, 2022,” Microsoft said on the Windows Health dashboard. “Please note, if there are no other safeguards that affect your device, it can take up to 48 hours before the update to Windows 11, version 22H2 is offered.

In addition, according to the statistics of bleepingcomputer, Windows 11 22H2 has experienced 5 deferred updates that require the Safeguard holds function to be enabled since its release in October, and there are also some minor problems in other aspects. In any case, as one of its core products, Microsoft still needs to pay more attention to Windows.
