    Game Mode slows down my PC

    Has anyone else tried the new "Game Mode" in Creators Update? I tried it with PCSX2 (PS2 emulator) and I noticed that my PC got really REALLY slow, even on PCSX2's menus. Also, after I closed it, my computer stayed slow. I went back into settings and turned Game Mode off which didn't take effect until after a restart. Has anyone else had a similar experience with Game Mode slowing their PC to a crawl?

    It's supposed to be good for just limited number of games and emulators run in it's own environment so they can't possibly benefit from anything but better HW.

    Yes it will slow down some systems. It's a new feature and will improve with time.
