Microsoft has released the highly anticipated May 2020 Update for Windows 10
. This Update brings support for both WDDM 2.7 and DirectX 12 Ultimate. Moreover, it packs some Xbox Game Bar improvements.
According to the release notes, this update tweaks Windows Search in order to reduce the stress on your system, Disk and CPU usage. Thus, users will notice faster performance on devices with older hard disk drives (HDDs). On the other hand, those using an SSD will not notice any major performance improvements.
As said, the May 2020 Update includes support for new DirectX 12 features including Raytracing tier 1.1, Mesh Shader, and Sampler Feedback. Furthermore, multi-monitor support will get some improvements, thanks to the Windows Driver Display Module (WDDM 2.7) support.
And since this is such a major update, that means lots of things are changing, and there are still a bunch of known issues, despite being tested and serviced for so long. Here's the full list of things that are still broken:
- Difficulty connecting to more than one Bluetooth device
Windows 10 devices with certain Realtek drivers might be unable to connect to more than one Bluetooth device.
- Errors or issues during or after updating devices with Conexant ISST audio drivers

- Issues using ImeMode property to control IME mode for individual text entry fields
Some IMEs for certain langauges might have issues using the ImeMode property with certain apps.
- Variable refresh rate not working as expected on devices with Intel iGPU
Enabling VRR on affected devices will not enable the VRR for most games, especially games using Direct X 9.
- Stop error when plugging or unplugging a Thunderbolt dock
Devices using Thunderbolt docks may receive a stop error when plugging in or unplugging the dock
- Errors or unexpected restarts for some devices using Always On, Always Connected
Devices with more than one Always On, Always Connected capable network adapter might have issues.
- No mouse input with apps and games using GameInput Redistributable
Affected apps and games using both GameInput Redistributable and Windows 10, version 2004 might lose mouse input.

Devices with apps or drivers using certain versions of aksfridge.sys or aksdf.sys might have issues updating or starting
