AMD releases Radeon Adrenalin 20.5.1 driver with support for Windows 10 May Update

AMD today announced the Adrenalin 20.5.1 driver for Radeon GPU users. The most important new feature is support for the superb May update for Windows 10, which is now available to everyone, but unfortunately was full of bugs. After AMD missed a month of not updating its graphics software drivers, today AMD released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 version 20.5.1 driver suite. This time the focus is almost exclusively on support for the 2020 Windows 10 Update May Edition.

According to reports about the AMD subreddit, the hardware-based GPU plan seems to have been lost, although the driver shows support for WDDM 2.7 after the update. AMD also makes no mention of support for Windows 10 Update May Edition 2020 in its release notes.

We discovered that at the same time the driver introduces the new AMD Link Xinput emulation driver, which “will improve compatibility with current and future games”. The first time you stream a game using AMD Link, this tool will be installed and appear as an Xbox 360 controller in the Device Manager.
