Microsoft Confirms Latest Windows 10 Update May Decrease Performance in Certain Gaming Scenarios

Microsoft has confirmed that their latest Windows 10 update (KB4482887), which released on march 1st, can actually degrade graphics and mouse performance in some games. As Microsoft themselves put it, "After installing KB4482887, users may notice graphics and mouse performance degradation with desktop gaming when playing certain games (eg: Destiny 2)."

There's no word yet on a definitive listing of games that suffer this performance degradation, but Microsoft is hard at work fixing this for the next Windows release. Until then, users facing graphics and mouse performance degradation can simply uninstall the KB4482887 update.

I honestly wasn't trying to attack which is why I said I was honestly curious. It is only something I have noticed in my professional life. It is also why I said: I know this is a forum.

Actually, that is a big WRONG. I only have one fortune 500 client. The rest of them are more medium and small sized. I forgive your assumption.

The only reason I still have a (legacy) windows partition is for a few games and even this gets messed up, funny that.

Useful and nice they extended that to home versions. But my experience is W10 monthly patches are not usually a problem. It is the semiannual OS changeover that really is responsible for most people’s troubles.
