As we’re sure you know by now, Windows 11 has just received its first major feature update, in the form of version 22H2, or Windows 11 2022 update.

This version of the OS brought a lot of new features, but also restored some of the old ones, such as the drag & drop function.

Another notable and welcomed change for version 22H2 is the fact that the Windows Update tool is going to leave a much smaller carbon footprint.

However, not everything is rainbows and unicorns when it comes to this recent Windows 11 version, and users are already reporting major problems.

Users reported Nvidia-related problems after installing 22H2

Many of us already expected such situations, so it should come as no surprise. Just as usual, the new update is not without its issues though.

Besides the update process failing for many with the error code 0x800f0806, Windows 11 users have also reported other issues as well.

The problem seems to be related to overlays on games, so you know just in case you thought of other scenarios as well.

Thus, if you’re playing a game and you want to check its performance, and you press Alt + R to make the GeForce Experience performance overlay show up, your game might begin stuttering badly.

That being said, in titles such as God of War, users have reported up to an 87.5% reduction in framerates from bringing up the overlay.

After installing the 2022 update, Windows 11 users took to forums and social media platforms to express their frustration on the matter.

The same here, I have the i7 12700k and the cpu usage is between 0% and 2% when previously it was around 25% or 45%, but I didn’t revert the update, I think maybe it’s an Afterburner MSI error

You don’t need to panic, however, as Nvidia has acknowledged the problem and confirmed that it is looking into the matter.

Company officials have actually requested more feedback from the affected users on the above-mentioned Reddit thread.

So, in case you are reading this article and are facing similar issues, you can provide much-needed feedback to Nvidia using this form.

Microsoft issued an emergency patch update

All the reports of unstable framerates and stuttering, and lower than typical CPU usage in games triggered Nvidia and Microsoft to take immediate action.

Nvidia was quick to look into the complaints and confirmed that the issues were an outcome of new graphics debugging tools in Windows 11 22H2 that was accidentally getting triggered.

Today, however, Nvidia released a GeForce Experience (GFE) beta update with version 3.26 that resolves these recent issues.

Furthermore, Nvidia has outlined two ways in which users can update to this version of GFE, in case you were wondering about it.

It can either be done manually by downloading and installing it, or by enabling the experimental features option inside the GFE app which will allow the installation of beta updates.
