A recent Windows 10 update is trashing framerates and causing games to stutter


Recommended Posts


"Microsoft forced the April update, but it has the same issues we had experienced with the previous optional update. Random stutter, unstable fps, V-Sync seems broken sometimes—if I screen share on Discord my fps in games becomes very unstable with V-Sync enabled," a user wrote on Reddit (via Computer Base).


Other Windows 10 users quickly chimed in to report they have been experiencing the same or similar issues, after applying the recent update.

God, nonsense like this is why I am nervous to build this new PC with Windows 10. I purposely left my current PC on Windows 8.1 where I still have the control on how and when I do updates. Helped I wasn't playing any DX12 games.
