Overall, average gaming performance isn't affected too much, but higher frame time variability might introduce some stuttering.

Although, the biggest takeaway from this article is to update to Windows 10 if you're still on Windows 7. You're giving up a large amount of performance by staying on Windows 7 and even more so if you decide to install the Windows 7 version of this patch. Surely that's worth sitting through a few forced updates.

One way or another Win 7 will update to Win 10 if you're connect online.

Enjoy the gaping security issues that arise when support for 7 is finally ended and you're too stubborn to realize that your system is compromised.
Hell, enjoy the gaping security holes you already have if you don't update your OS.

It's not worth "sitting through a few forced updates" when they interrupt/lose my work, costing me money, and then break the functionality of my PC preventing me from recouping that loss.
Plain and simple, Windows 10 is not acceptable for a reliable work machine. I count on my PC for my income, and cannot have it down and out on it's own terms whenever Microsoft feels like it.
I'd be more likely to uninstall these updates and offline the entire system than use Windows 10.

Imagine, if you will, that I had a Ryzen based PC when Microsoft pushed that out of band update. In the middle of a big project, and suddenly, my PC restarts. I can't contact my clients to tell them what's going on, my stream just goes dead. Right out the gate, hours of work lost, and hours of delays to my current work. And when it's finally "done"? The system is too unstable to get into Windows because Microsoft does not test their updates for W10. Rolling back takes another hour, and still doesn't work. Client is pissed because I can't meet the deadline and, understandably, refuses to pay for the work that was lost, or the time that was lost thereafter, possibly even for what work I managed to salvage.
Yeah, no, that is not f***ing acceptable. I used Win10 on my SP3, and I've had very similar incidents happen with that prior to fully disabling Windows Update. It cost me work, the updates took ages, and when I got back online, the client was gone and I had to delay everything. Never mind the jank with the broken updates causing stability issues.

I cannot overstate how much of a not-an-option Windows 10 is for any serious professional. If you're just another appleturd looking for the latest gadget and you don't actually do any productive PC work, sure. You can stand to lose some gaming uptime or whatever I guess. That's your deal, go for it. No real harm.

Sounds like its even more important than ever to have Gsync/freesync.

Actually, stutters like this show up with adaptive sync, sometimes even more than regular vsync, since it's an actual stutter in the frame pacing of the game rather than a desynchronization of the game's frame timing and the display's refresh timing.
With Vsync, some of these stutters may actually be buffered out at the cost of input latency.

I thought it was rather obvious that this entire discussion was in the context of gaming. Get a dedicated work computer and run whatever OS you want for serious work.
