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.

ad`hominem will get you nowhere also it is 'clients', not 'client'.
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.

And it looks like KB4489899 (OS Build 17763.379) fixes the issue.

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.

Windows 10 1903 last update is a fucking disgrace for gaming. Fucking shame. CPU high usage DISK high usage graphics issues, discrete GPU not found :@ windows update biometric and update background process HIGH ussage.
FPS drops issues, stuttering , lag HIGH END powerfull PC with intel last generation CPU and goood invidia GPU with Windows 10 now is a SHAME performance.
If microsoft dont fix this hole update with new clear and good patch, I will say fuck you to microsoft and i will install LUNUX, ( bad for gaming , wineHQ necessary) or Windows 7 or WINDOWS XP PIRATE VERSIONS :@:@


END OF STORY

Express your gratitude in feedback hub and upvote existing problems, so the dev team picks them up as priority. You can shove this anger elsewhere...

Sheesh... full of dandelions here as usual...

Well considering that this update is not one of them usually scheduled updates in that it wasn't released on the Second Tuesday of the Month schedule I'm going to guess that not a lot of systems were hit by this High Cortana CPU Usage issue. I know my system is still running 18362.295 which was released on August 13th and I'm not seeing this issue.

I usually let Windows Update download updates only when it needs to, I don't force it anymore and neither should anyone else if they want system stability. Updates such as the 18362.329 update are sort of test updates, updates to test the waters. If you don't want these kinds of updates to install, don't go manually checking for updates.

I did check my system and it's saying that this update is optional, meaning it's not being pushed to all systems; only those that have users who want to test this kind of stuff.
