Windows 10 20H1 Update releases on May 26th, brings DirectX 12 Ultimate & Xbox Game Bar improvements

Microsoft has announced that the May 2020 Update, also known as 20H1 Update, for Windows 10 will release on May 26th. This optional update will be available in waves, and will bring a lot of tweaks and improvements to Windows 10.

According to Microsoft, Windows 10 Version 20H1 will officially support DirectX 12 Ultimate. Alongside the new features that DX12 Ultimate will bring are DirectX Raytracing Tier 1.1, Mesh Shader and Sampler Feedback.

Moreover, the May 2020 Update will bring some Xbox Game Bar improvements. For instance, it will add an FPS counter and a performance overlay. Now I don’t know whether these metrics will be better than those of Rivatunner, however, it’s cool witnessing Microsoft improving the Game Bar.

It’s also worth noting that this new version of Windows 10 will improve disk usage for Windows Search. It will also enable Windows Hello PIN in Safe Mode. Furthermore, Task Manager will now display GPU temperature, and it will add Mouse Speed to Settings.
