A problem with a recent Windows 10 cumulative update forced Microsoft to agree with customers that the update caused Windows to underperform. For a lot of customers, Windows 10 gaming would slow to a crawl. Microsoft even suggested that customers should uninstall the update.
In the stack of updates for March 2019’s Patch Tuesday, Microsoft is including a fix for the performance issues.
March 12, 2019—KB4489899 (OS Build 17763.379) – Addresses an issue that may degrade graphics and mouse performance with desktop gaming when playing certain games, such as Destiny 2, after installing KB4482887.
Of course, affected users may want to install this right away, considering it describes a fix. However, as has been the case many times with Microsoft’s promised fixes, it pays to wait to get an “all clear” before trudging down a path to update.
Still, if you’re one of those die-hard, love to be first, don’t mind pain and suffering, guinea pigs – feel free to update and let us know your findings.
