    Here I was thinking Win 10 had advantages for game performance. Meh, I'm still quite content on Windows 7, until MS find a way for force me over to Win 10.

    I don't recall saying there was no issue. How many are effected by this? Is there any indication of the numbers? Is it limited to a particular set of software/hardware? Perhaps you should work for MS, get the job of fixing it done much quicker right :thumbup:

    It will get fixed when they sort out the issue then won't it. But I suspect it would get sorted out quicker if you were there on the team. Send them your resume!

    6 months to fix a major bug in a live OS - you're totally right NBD! That's 6 months of not even ADMITTING to the problem.

    Again, how many are effected by this? What are the numbers wee are talking here? Are you personally effected by it? I know I'm not. has there been an identified set of circumstances where this occurs?

    Get stuttering in battlefield. Random as too, once every like 4 hours or so. Feels like 10fps for like maybe 1 minute 30secs or so.

    This thread is very important as it would be affecting many users therefore the content has been added to the '[WIN10] Windows 10 Mega thread'.

    I will also note, I get sound stuttering on my Win10 HTPC NUC wonder if this is the same issue as those commenting on game stuttering (video looks fine and has a lot of excess buffer at the time) but the sound keeps dropping off and then coming back.

    Happens in Kodi and browser based video (haven't tried a local file yet).

    The sound is doing pass-through from the iGPU.

    This ^^^

    With the amount of different combinations of hardware, software, drivers, installed updates, firmware/bios versions, etc, etc, etc it's not unreasonable for something like this to happen.

    It might be incredible hard to reproduce.

    Then you just had a bunch of people whose IT experience/ability is questionable, saying "since this update, I've had this problem".

    Now, it is certainly within reason to take this with a grain of salt... and file it with the similar "Since you fixed my printer, my powerpoint started crashing" type reports.

    I'm not sure if I've had this issue or not.

    I was having an extremely poor experience with my main W10 computer.
    Even running things like Edge was extremely slow. Chatting to someone in Facebook would be painful as each individual letter I was typing would take a good 2 seconds to appear. So, I would type a sentence and spend the next minute waiting for it to appear on the screen.

    Obviously had lots of issues in games as well.

    I decided to do a full reinstall, and decided to use that as an excuse to buy a new SSD (was running a Sandisk Extreme II), so bought an 960 Evo M.2.

    Lightning fast, no slowdown at all when in Windows or in games.

    If my issue is related, it only goes to show that in a system with (virtually) the same hardware it doesn't always happen.
    So, it's not as easy as saying "A Kaby Lake CPU with 16GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GFX Card will have the issue".

    all well and good until you notice that Microsoft have a) admitted there is an issue and b) said they've made a fix.

    it's more news than complaining.

    This is an ongoing issue that's been live for 6 months and will not be in the mainstream build until October, also according to some outlets the insider fix is not complete but rather a partial fix.
