Device Manager

After Intel and Nvidia, AMD has also released new GPU drivers
with support for Windows 10 May 2020 Update. If you’ve already
upgraded to May 2020 Update or you’re planning to update later
this week, you will want to install AMD’s newly released Radeon
driver, which is based on WDDM 2.7.

Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.5.1 is focused on
optimizing support for Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020
Update) and the driver is apparently based on WDDM 2.7 (Windows
Display Driver Model).

However, it appears that support for hardware-accelerated GPU
scheduling, which is the key feature of WDDM 2.7, is not
included in this release.

May 2020 Update allows you to enable hardware-accelerated GPU
scheduling from Windows Settings and it allows the graphics
card to manage own video RAM directly.

It’s believed that hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling delivers
better performance, reduced latency and improved minimum or
average frame-rates.

If you use AMD or Nvidia GPU cards, you will have to wait for a
while before support for hardware-based scheduling arrives.

Intel has also released WDDM 2.7 based drivers, but the
hardware-based scheduling looks to be missing in the Settings

for AMD Link Xinput Emulation driver (AMDXE), which aims
to improve compatibility with current and future games.

In this release, there are a bunch of bug fixes too and as well
as known issues, which you should keep in mind before updating
the drivers.

AMD says that it has resolved a bug crashing Star Wars Jedi:
Fallen Order and Control when Radeon Anti-Lag feature is

AMD is also aware of a known issue where players will notice
stuttering in games with RX 5000 series graphics cards.
According to the company, Enhanced Sync could still cause a
black screen on some games and configurations.
