One of the most known bugs caused by Windows 10 Creators Update is the infamous FPS drop that affected thousands of gamers. People have been reporting this issue for months now, but Microsoft remained silent on the problem.

Up until now. The company has finally acknowledged the issue, saying that the development team is currently investigating the possible cause of the problem. A Microsoft engineer confirmed this by posting on the Feedback Hub:

“Thank you everyone for providing feedback and submitting traces. We have been analyzing the traces from your feedback and have identified several different problem sources surfacing as stutter in games. We have a fix for one of them in the Windows Insider build that flighted to the “Fast” ring (build 16273 and above). You can find instructions on joining the Windows 10 Insider Program here: https://insider.windows.com/en-us/how-to-pc/. We are actively investigating the remaining stutter causes and appreciate your patience on this issue.”

Even though Microsoft finally acknowledged the issue, we still don’t know when the actual fix will be released. So, gamers will have to deal with framerate drops for some more time. But at least there’s hope that Microsoft will release the fix soon.

On the other hand, the official release date of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update approaches fast. This could mean that Microsoft will actually implement the fix into the new major update for Windows 10, rather than releasing it independently.

However, these are only predictions, as Microsoft hasn’t said anything about the upcoming fix, yet. We’ll make sure to let you know as soon as there’s more info.
