users are once again experiencing a raft of problems with a new update from Microsoft. The Patch Tuesday release for April 2021 was meant to fix – among other things – some long-standing problems that PC fans have faced. But instead, Windows 10 users have reported a number of issues with the latest cumulative update, including poor gaming performance, boot loops, and the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) making a return.

If this sounds a bit familiar to you then, chances are, you might have an Nvidia graphics cards inside your machine. As reported by Windows Latest, an NVIDIA staff member has suggested Windows 10 users have started to experience issues with Nvidia-branded graphics cards since installing the April 2021 cumulative update. If that sounds like your problem, you should now rollback to a previous version of the operating system.

Among the issues that gamers have reported include frame rate drops and other stuttering gaming performances.

Speaking about Windows 10 KB5001330 cumulative update in a forum post, a NVIDIA employee said: "If you are seeing lower performance in games, check if rolling back Windows 10 Update KB5000842 solves the issue".

While this will help resolve the issues reported with the April 2021 update, it's far from ideal for Windows 10 users. .

Nineteen of these security issues were classed as critical, including one zero-day vulnerability that attackers had been actively exploiting.

Rolling back to a previous version of Windows 10 means PCs won't be offered the protection that the April 2021 update brings. Since the release of the April 2021 update gamers have been talking to a wide range of forums such as Reddit, the Feedback Hub and the NVIDIA forums to report gaming issues they face.

One wrote: "This update seems to introduce a large amount of stuttering on my RTX 3070/R5 3600 rig. I initially thought it was corrupting the OS or graphics driver, but nope, the stuttering came back with every re-install and went away with every uninstall."

While another posted: "Previously ran Warcraft on a solid 140 FPS, now it’s stuttering occasionally and FPS has dropped to about 90 FPS".

And one added: "Call of Duty Cold War and Warzone dropped down to 1 FPS and are completely unplayable. When running other games in fullscreen windowed the performance in Chrome on my secondary monitor is taking a massive hit too".
