Microsoft fixing Windows 10 'stuttering' bugs in Creators Update

Microsoft has confirmed that gamers reporting odd stuttering since the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update earlier this year have not been imagining the issue, releasing a fix for at least one of the root causes to Windows Insiders and actively investigating others.

After months of reports from users, Microsoft seems to have finally acknowledged the issue. You can find instructions on joining the Windows 10 Insider Program here: https://insider.windows.com/en-us/how-to-pc/.

It is important to note that build 16273 was released to Insiders near the end of last month, and supposedly includes fixes to only one of the issues identified by Microsoft engineers. According to reports, there were noticeable stuttering issues in games with the Creator's Update.

"Thanks to all of you who provided feedback and submitted traces via the Feedback app". We have been analyzing the traces from your feedback and have identified several different problem sources surfacing as stutter in games. 'We have a fix for one of them in the Windows Insider build that flighted to the "Fast" ring [of Windows Insider beta builds] (build 16273 and above).

Branson bunkers down for Hurricane Irma
After the hurricane passed, Branson announced that his beloved island, which he has owned since 1978, had been badly damaged. Though all guests were sent home, Branson, as well as about two rooms worth of family and staff, made a decision to stay.

Gamers in particular have been among the most stubborn holdouts for the older Windows 7 - in part over compatibility concerns but also because of performance worries.

Whether the fixes will fully resolve the stuttering problems remains to be seen, though early feedback on the Windows 10 subreddit suggests that for at least some of the users, the updates have done the trick.

Unfortunately for those now suffering from performance issues, little can be done until Microsoft releases the Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update next month. Still, it's good knowing that Microsoft has confirmed and attempted to fix it. We have reached out to Microsoft for more information on the issue, and we'll update this article when and if we hear back.
