Early adopters on Reddit and elsewhere are complaining about higher-than-normal CPU usage, resulting in significant stuttering and dropped frames per second in a variety of games. Others report audio glitches and the occasional complete system crash, the dreaded Blue Screen of Death, according to Windows Latest.
Despite the vehement outcry, these issues may only be affecting a small percentage of users. As much as many Windows Insiders have experienced the issue, it wasn’t enough to stop the sizable update from reaching the general population (or, to be fair, it’s possible that Microsoft engineers decided to kick the can for Nvidia after launch. ). Of course, this would be of little comfort to users who are seeing the problem and don’t have an easy way to fix it.
As widespread as it is, Nvidia is aware of the issue and presumably working on a driver-level fix via an update. Meanwhile, some users are finding relief by terminating the NVIDIA FrameView SDK service in Task Manager and rebooting their system. If the issues persist, you can roll back the 2022 update and wait for these wrinkles to clear.
