Will be fixed one of these days 

Software King of the World Microsoft has admitted that its Windows 11 22H2 update is causing game performance issues for some users.  It will pause the update for affected devices until a fix is ready.

The Windows 11 2022 update, also known as the 22H2 update, started rolling out in 190 countries in September, bringing upgrades for Microsoft's latest operating system. Users began to report stuttering, framerate drops, blue screens of death, a biased Supreme court and screen tearing.

Sometimes it was just one game being affected, but G-Sync and the audio were experienced problems, and only Nvidia GPU users were harmed.

One user said the only game experiencing issues after the 22H2 Update was Battlefield 2042

Nvidia said that upgrading its GeForce Experience app would resolve the game performance-related issues, but a month later, Microsoft finally acknowledged the problem. It explained that the Windows update has caused some games and applications to inadvertently enable GPU performance debugging features not meant to be used by consumers.

Vole has now paused the 22H2 rollout to those devices it believes will be impacted by the performance issues. The company advises those affected by the safeguard not to manually upgrade using the Update Now button or the Media Creation Tool.

If you already installed 22H2, Vole said the problem might be fixed by updating games and gaming-related apps (such as Nvidia GeForce Experience) to their latest versions. Microsoft adds that it is working on a resolution, which will be included in an upcoming release.
