Windows 11 Update Resolves NVMe SSD Performance Issues
August 2023 – In a bid to address the long-standing performance issues with NVMe SSDs, the Windows 11 update rolled out earlier this month has shown promising results. Users had been experiencing a significant decline in device speed, with reports of more than a 50% drop even after subsequent updates.
These performance issues were initially discovered in the preliminary builds of the operating system and were unintentionally included in the March 2023 Patch Tuesday release. At the time, Microsoft did not officially acknowledge the problems, causing uncertainty and frustration among users.
However, recent data suggests that a considerable number of users have noticed improvements in performance after installing the latest update. Although some isolated SSD challenges may still exist, Windows Latest has documented notable enhancements reported by a majority of users.
The updates implicated in the performance issues include KB5028185, KB5027303, KB5027231, KB5026372, KB5025239, KB5023778, KB5023706, and the initial Windows 11 preview builds. The SSD slowdown occurrences were widely discussed, particularly after the release of KB5023778.
While the optional July 2023 update provided some mitigation, the ultimate resolution came with the August 2023 Patch Tuesday (KB5029263). Microsoft’s prompt rectification aligns with their efforts to address Windows 11 performance as they prepare for the release of the 23H2 version. The company is actively encouraging users to migrate to the updated OS.
This latest update signifies Microsoft’s commitment to addressing user concerns and ensuring optimal performance for Windows 11. As the release of 23H2 draws closer, users can expect further improvements and enhancements to the operating system.
