Home » Windows » Fix: FPS rate drops after installing the Anniversary Update

More and more gamers are complaining about issues caused by the Anniversary Update. The latest Windows version blocks the Exclusive Mode in game controllers, preventing gamers from properly using their devices.

Other gamers have recently noticed the FPS rate drops significantly after installing the Anniversary Update. In some cases, the FPS rate is reduced by as much as 50%, which heavily impacts the gaming experience.

So far, it appears that the only users who are complaining about the FPS rate are the ones using NVIDIA graphics cards. The possibility that this issue could be caused by outdated drivers can easily be dismissed, as gamers confirmed their drivers are updated.

Gamers report FPS rate drops after installing the Anniversary Update

I just updated my windows 10 to the latest version 1607 this morning. Before the update all my games used to run on a range from 90fps to 120fps, but since the update all my games fps have dropped to 60 and seem to be locked there. The weird thing is that when I open the game it starts running on the normal range of 90-120 but it instantly drops to 60 and stays there. I’m using a NVIDIA GEOFORCE GTX 960M that is up to date (checked this morning) and the V-SYNC option on the NVIDIA control panel is turned off as well as the in-game v-sync option.

It appears that the FPS rate drops because of the Xbox app in Windows 10, which records game clips all the time. Fortunately, a quick fix is available, and you’ll soon restore your normal FPS rate.

How to fix FPS drop in the Anniversary Update

  1. Go to the Xbox app > Settings
  2. Select Game DVR > Record Games  > turn off this option.
