Windows 11 22H2 is the first major update to Microsoft’s latest operating system, and unfortunately, it seems to have introduced some annoying issues, including poor gaming performance, for some users.
As Windows latest reports (opens in new tab)people are taking to Reddit (and other sites) to complain about these Windows 11 issues.
One of the most frustrating issues is affecting people with Nvidia graphics cards, with some gamers complaining that their frames per second (fps) have dropped, causing games to perform poorly, while audio is also affected. Other players have noticed games crashing due to fps drops.
Windows Latest also reports that Nvidia is investigating these issues and is requesting data from affected players to help it identify the issue. Hopefully with Nvidia and Microsoft’s investigation, a fix will appear soon.
Microsoft has also been accused of ignoring reports from Windows Insiders, who were testing Windows 11 22H2 in the months leading up to its release, as some highlighted the game’s poor performance during that testing period. For Microsoft to have pushed and released this update without resolving these issues first is certainly not a good idea.
There have also been reports of the dreaded Blue Screen of Death errors that appear while installing the update.
Microsoft will need to address these issues and ensure they are not too widespread – and that they are fixed quickly. Otherwise, Windows 11’s reputation could take another hit.
