Windows 11 22H2 issues: FPS drops, BSOD, installation stuck and other bugs hit users

Windows 11 22H2 is fairly stable as compared to previous releases, but it is causing serious issues for some users. Some Windows 11 users are running into trouble with sporadic frame rate drops, which according to reports are related to Nvidia graphics. Additionally, there are reports of Blue Screen of Death errors and other bugs in some cases too.

Users affected believe Windows 11 22H2 is causing the issue as the stuttering disappears when they uninstall the feature update. As various reports detail on Reddit, our comments section and Microsoft’s own Feedback Hub, the stuttering FPS hit at random times and lasts for a few seconds.

In some cases, FPS consistently remains low and audio is affected at the same time. This could be particular frustration when the frame rate suddenly drops when you’re about to win an online game or during a crucial moment. Affected games include Call of Duty and others.

Interestingly, some users warned Microsoft about potential performance issues in Windows 11 version 22H2 earlier this year and it looks like the isolated reports were ignored by the company.

Nvidia is apparently looking into the reports and the company has asked for additional data from affected users. This issue is hopefully something both Nvidia and Microsoft are working together to attempt to fix, so it’s likely that a proper resolution will be delivered in the near future,  likely via a GeForce drivers update.

If you’ve already installed Windows 11 2022 Update and the glitches aren’t really disrupting the gaming experience, you can sit tight and wait for the hotfix which is expected in a few weeks.
