Another Windows 11 bug causing troubles for owners of Nvidia GPUs and you shouldn’t panic or fret just yet as your GPU isn’t overheating.
Another Windows 11 Bug Causing Troubles for Owners of Nvidia GPUs
Another new week and yet another windows 11 22H2 bug and it’s once again Nvidia graphics cards that are bearing the bulk of the issues.
After an update-induced frame rate issue was patched by Nvidia just recently, Reddit users are now reporting yet more issues performance-related and also a quirky new bug that inverts the 3D readings for Nvidia GPUs in Task Manager.
Idle graphics cards are showing nearly 100% usage in Task Manager ticking over at really perfect cool temperatures and thus leaving users to be confused and at worst terrified at the same time for the wellbeing of their really pricey GPUs.
Should Gamers Panic
Well, the good news here is that the bug is really and indeed a bug. And in the event that your readings are being affected at the moment as a result, there is nothing wrong with your Nvidia graphics card. It kind of looks like the problem only is affecting older-generation cards too as well as the new Nvidia Lovelace RTX 400 series of GPUs.
Many users have suggested turning off GPU Hardware scheduling under GPU settings in Windows in order to get rid of the frustrating visual quirk. And while this may work, we otherwise suggest that you should leave the feature enabled as it is not actually doing any type of harm to your graphics card.
The Cause of The Problem
At the moment it is still not clear as to the reason for this whether it is due to a fault in windows 11 22H2 or Nvidia’s own driver update (522.25). but whatever the case may be, the safest course of action is to wait until either party rolls out a fix or solution.
