For a couple of months now gamers have been facing some weird FPS drops when using Windows 10 Creators Update. Some people thought that this was due to Windows 10 Creators Update and there was a lot of confusion surrounding the issue but now Microsoft has made a statement and has confirmed that the issue is indeed with the OS.
The company is looking into the matter and checking for the problem. There is a solution to one of the problems and you can download the patch if you are signed up as a Windows Insider. One of the fast ring builds will solve one of the issues. People that are not part of the Insider program will have to wait for the patch to be released to everyone.
You can rest assured that the company is looking into what is causing these issues and we will have an update soon. According to a Microsoft engineer on the Feedback Hub:
Thank you everyone for providing feedback and submitting traces. We have been analyzing the traces from your feedback and have identified several different problem sources surfacing as stutter in games. We have a fix for one of them in the Windows Insider build that flighted to the “Fast” ring (build 16273 and above). You can find instructions on joining the Windows 10 Insider Program here: https://insider.windows.com/en-us/how-to-pc/. We are actively investigating the remaining stutter causes and appreciate your patience on this issue.
The Fall Creators Update is just around the corner and it is more than likely that the issues will be resolved in the upcoming update instead of a patch coming out separately for this issue. The next major update will offer a couple of new features as well.
Let us know what you think about this issue with the Windows 10 Creators Update and whether or not you have been affected as well.
