    Severe performance reduction on any unfocused app


    Hello, i couldn't find any solution so far, hope this works:


    Any time i'm using an app, any other app gets reduced performance. For example if i'm playing a game and watching a movie the movie will have very bad performance, choppy playback and unresponsive UI. If i focus the movie window it goes back to normal but now the game goes down to 10fps.


    And before you ask i already did the following:

    - GPU and Windows power setting to "Max Performance"

    - FPS limitations are disabled

    - GPU acceleration is enabled or disabled, the effect remains.


    This happens regardless of what apps or games i'm running - i am effectively unable to run a game and watch a youtube video at the same time. Some games actually stop working and kick me out due to low performance (anti-hacking detection kicks it).

    I got a 16-core CPU and 16GB of RAM, it should be able to handle a game, a 4K video and a 30-tab browser just fine. This started happening a while ago but i can definitely remember this not being a problem until one of the Windows updates.

    :)

    Nokia Suite Ovi Store Dramatic Reduction of Apps?

    I decided to launch Nokia Suite 3.8.48 to look at the app selection. I noticed a reduction of apps from Ovi Store from within the PC. CellPhone Soft's SwissManager Pro is listed on the web but not from within Nokia Suite.



    Windows Phone Games and Apps - Opera Mobile Store



    What has happened to the Ovi Store apps? Nokia Maps Suite 2.0 is still listed inside Nokia Suite when I checked but not 3rd party apps? SCam Free is listed but not the SCam paid version.



    I was viewing the software without connecting the phone which was previously acceptable.
