Since March 2023, Windows 11 users have faced extensive issues with NVMe SSD performance that seemed to begin with the original Moment 2 update and many since then. As we've covered in prior articles, these bugs have been long-lasting through each update and causing drives to experience much slower speeds.
However, with the recent launch of Microsoft's newest August 2023 update this week, many NVMe SSD users are reporting that any previous performance bugs have fully dissipated to normal functionality.
Moreover, with the release of the August 2023 update, Patriot technical support has found that the bugs found in previous Windows 11 updates for all types of SSD manufacturers are no longer occurring. Patriot technical support can also confirm that the August 2023 Update (KB5029263) can ultimately fix these bugs.
Users without automatic update installation on can update their systems through the following recommended method:
1. Go to the Start menu, select Settings, select Update and Security and select Windows Update.
2. Select "Check for Updates".
3. The following update should be made available to download: August 2023 update (KB5029263/23H2).
4. Once confirming that this update is available, install the update. Once installed, restart your system.
