Windows 10 feature 2

Microsoft confirms that Windows 10 KB4482887 update can degrade graphics & mouse performance in certain games

On March 1st, Microsoft released a brand new update for Windows 10 that brought a number of quality improvements. However, and after various reports, Microsoft has confirmed that this latest update can degrade graphics and mouse performance in certain games (like for example Destiny 2).

As Microsoft noted in the official page for the Windows 10 KB4482887 update:

“After installing KB4482887, users may notice graphics and mouse performance degradation with desktop gaming when playing certain games (eg: Destiny 2).”

Microsoft claimed that it’s currently working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release. Still, and as a workaround, PC gamers can uninstall KB4482887 to regain performance.

Microsoft has not explained/detailed the reasons behind this performance degradation. Moreover, this issue may not affect everyone therefore we strongly suggest uninstalling this update only if you are experiencing worse performance in your favourite games after applying it.

Kudos to our reader “Metal Messiah” for bringing this to our attention!
