Windows 11 22H2 gets Nvidia update to fix frame rates and stuttering bugs

Nvidia rushes driver update to fix low-performance issues after upgrading to Windows 11 22H2.

  • Nvidia releases driver update 517.48 to fix performance issues on Windows 11 22H2.
  • The update fixes low frame rates, stuttering, and low processor usage.
  • You can also get the update with the GeForce Experience 3.26 installer.

Nvidia releases an update for the GeForce Experience (GFE) with a newer driver version to fix low frame rates, stuttering, and low processor usage. Microsoft began the gradual rollout of Windows 11 22H2 on September 20, 2022, but shortly after, a small number of users started reporting several performance issues with the Nvidia graphics cards.

After reviewing the complaints, Nvidia concluded that the problem was the new graphics debugging tools that are part of Windows 11 22H2, which automatically triggered unexpected performance issues, such as low frame rates, stuttering, and low processor usage.

Starting on September 25, Nvidia is releasing a beta update to fix these issues. According to the support page, the company describes the issue as “lower performance in games or applications after updating to Microsoft Windows 11 2022 Update.” (The stable version of the application is available starting September 27, which includes the driver update 517.48.)

Alternatively, you can download and install the driver version 517.48 manually for your desktop or laptop graphics cards.
