Following a one year period of beta testing with a group of
testers, Microsoft is getting ready to release Windows 10
May 2020 Update, the next big version of the desktop operating
system. It was already known that the update will be released
in the next few weeks, but now there is an extra reason to
believe that the launch is imminent.
Microsoft typically seeds the final versions of Windows 10
major updates to users in the following order: Release Preview
Ring > OEMs/PC manufacturer > Developers (MSDN
subscribers) > mainstream users. The update is now rolling
out to developers with Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN)
This is the last milestone in the preparation of Windows 10’s
May 2020 Update. The developers with MSDN subscription can now
download the ISO files and test the feature update on their
machines. For these developers, both the consumer and business
versions of the May 2020 Update (version 2004) are available.
It’s worth pointing out that MSDN download for May 2020 Update
doesn’t have the ARM64 version yet.
The arrival of the May 2020 Update for MSDN users suggest
public non-beta release could be coming later this month, most
likely between May 26 and 28. Like we’ve noted before in our
older articles, Windows 10 version 2004 is a huge release and
it will be delivered through Windows Update in a phased roll
Windows 10 version 2004 doesn’t come with any big overhaul, but
there is something for everyone. For gamers,
Microsoft has worked on WDDM to improve multi-monitor
support, video playback performance, reduce latency and
increase frame rates during gameplay.
Microsoft has been testing the Windows 10 version 2004 with
Insiders since February 2019 to patch up the bugs and other
issues in the operating system. It comes after the company
faced heavy criticism for buggy cumulative updates, which
performance issues, and
lots of other problems for many consumers.
According to one rumour, May 2020 Update will begin rolling out
to mainstream users on May 28.
