Performance issues with Nvidia graphics cards under Windows 11 22H2 should finally be a thing of the past. Nvidia has long since taken down its own build sites, while Microsoft is now pushing the update out for deployment again after being locked for a few weeks. Read more about this below.
In addition to an issue that Nvidia itself had with its own drivers that it could now resolve, there was another issue with Geforce pixel accelerators in the latest version of Windows 11. Graphics cards had to struggle with decreased performance. However, in the meantime, the issue seems to have been resolved and Microsoft has now released Windows 11 22H2 for all users. The rollout originally began in October and was reported in November to have caused performance issues.

When many users reported this problem to Microsoft, the company decided to add a protection to the update until the exact details could be clarified. This is the standard procedure to prevent users with problematic hardware configurations from being affected by the update as well. The search began and they soon found what they were looking for. Microsoft explained the issue as some apps and games appear to enable GPU performance debugging features that were not designed for public use. However, why they caused such a drop in performance is not yet known.
Following this, to complete the confusion, Nvidia released an update for Geforce Experience that resolved the stuttering issue caused by its own software. This, in turn, is said to have had nothing to do with Microsoft’s problems. Microsoft itself resolved the performance loss with the KB5020044 update and on December 14. removed the Safeguard. The company has announced that the Windows 11 update may take up to 48 hours to be available to all users and 22H2 to install.
