Sound lags, delays & Audio latency in Windows 10

If you haven’t notice it yet, Windows, especially on Laptop is followed by sound after every action. It really feels nice to get the sound effects on the actions you make. But what if the sounds do not sync with your actions? Yeah. That’s called a Lag. Well if you are experiencing such lags in the sound then here is an article that can help you out.

Sound delays and lags occur on a Windows 10 system because of the buffer size issues of the audio driver as well as the system as a whole. However, there’s a good thing here as well. If an app needs to use small buffers, then it needs to use the new AudioGraph settings or the WASAPI IAudioClient3 interface, to do so. But, if one app changes it, this will be applicable for all the apps.
