Windows 11 22H2 Games and Applications Slow Performance

Microsoft has added an Issue to the bugs list for Windows 11 22H2, confirming that under Windows 11 22H2 some games or applications may perform less.

If you are still using Windows 10 or Windows 11 21H2, you will not be offered the new Windows 11 22H2 at this time.

For the time that the issue has not yet been resolved by Microsoft, an upgrade block has been applied. So, older systems cannot upgrade to the latest version of Windows 11 22H2.

Microsoft Note: Some games and apps might experience lower-than-expected performance or stuttering on Windows 11, version 22H2. Affected games and apps are inadvertently enabling GPU performance debugging features not meant to be used by consumers.


To safeguard your upgrade experience, we have applied a compatibility hold on devices affected by this issue from being offered or installing Windows 11, version 22H2. If your organization is using Update Compliance, the safeguard IDs are 41766570 and 41990091.


Workaround: If you are already on Windows 11, version 22H2, and are experiencing this issue, you might be able to resolve it by updating your games and gaming-related apps to the latest version available. If you are unsure how to update the games and apps you have installed, you will need to consult the developer of those games and apps, but most will update automatically through the store they were purchased from or directly when opening them.


Next steps: We are working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release. Note: We recommend that you do not attempt to manually upgrade using the Update now button or the Media Creation Tool until this issue has been resolved, and the safeguard removed.  Read More here.
