No matter how big you are, how many resources your company has, Microsoft has once again shown that you’re never too big to fail. The latest Windows 10 KB5001330 update (which many get automatically) has broken gaming.
While gamers will be mostly affected, if you work with video or stream, you’ll notice the framerate drops and stuttering. The latest update actually makes streaming games through Streamlabs OBS a painful exercise.
While the issues seem to be primarily NVIDIA graphics cards, AMD also seems to be affected based on some of the online chatter I’ve seen.
The only solution is to roll back the update on your machine or tolerate the reduced performance and stuttering, until Microsoft pokes the code monkeys writing the patches enough to fix it.
Maybe it’s time Microsoft rehired the QA division to start testing their patches again. It seems Microsoft over the last couple of years has botched their patch releases.
