Microsoft admits that Windows 11 22H2 has game frame drop and freeze problems

Windows 11 22H2 is the first major update of Windows 11, bringing some new features and bug fixes. According to Microsoft’s plan, users will receive pushes in batches. However, shortly after the Windows 11 22H2 update went live, users of Nvidia GeForce graphics cards complained that the frame rate in the game dropped and became unstable, and there would be insufficient CPU utilization.

For this reason, Nvidia pointed the finger at Microsoft, saying that the new GPU debugging tool in Windows 11 22H2 was abnormal, which caused a significant drop in game performance. Although Nvidia has adjusted the problem in the new version of the driver, the problem has not been completely solved. Recently, Microsoft officially admitted that Windows 11 22H2 may experience lower-than-expected performance or lag on some games and applications. According to Microsoft, a software bug caused GPU-dependent apps and games to trigger debugging features that weren’t intended for users, resulting in a dramatic drop in performance.

Microsoft said that due to complaints from many users, it has taken restrictive measures to reduce the impact. If Windows 11 22H2 has not been installed, Windows Update will not be pushed to users’ systems until the problem is resolved. Microsoft is warning users not to manually upgrade using the Media Creation Tool in Windows Update or the “Update Now” button.

If the user has already installed Windows 11 22H2, Microsoft recommends that the user update the game or related application to the latest version. Microsoft said it is currently working on a solution and will provide a corresponding update in an upcoming release, but did not provide a specific timetable for the solution.
