Microsoft has fixed the recent Windows 10 gaming performance issues

Last month, Microsoft issued an update for Windows 10 that reportedly degraded performance on a number of PC systems. And a few days ago, the company released another update that resolves those gaming performance issues.

As Microsoft noted, a small subset of users has reported lower than expected performance in games after installing this update. Most users that suffered from this issue were running games full screen or borderless window modes and using two or more monitors.

In order to resolve this issue, Microsoft is using Known Issue Rollback (KIR). This solution enables Microsoft to “quickly revert a single, targeted fix to a previously released behavior if a critical regression is discovered“.

Windows 10 gamers will automatically receive this latest update (in other words, you won’t have to manually download anything).

Microsoft claims that it may take up to 24 hours for the resolution to propagate automatically. Additionally, restarting your PC system may fasten the process.

Stay tuned for more!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
