AMD new driver for the Windows 10 May 2020 update

The Windows 10 May 2020 update was already released, and Microsoft already signaled some problems with certain display drivers that block the update for some users.

Coincidence, or what, AMD released the new graphics card driver that adds support for the updated operating system.

What is new about AMD’s latest graphics card driver?

Well, the driver didn’t come alone, but together with the AMD’s Adrenalin 2020 version 20.5.1 that brings support for AMD Link Xinput Emulation and fixes a big list of issues.

For those unfamiliar with it, AMD Link is an app that allows you to stream games from your PC on your mobile device. That means that you can play on your Android phone when you’re away from your computer.

Another improvement is the new Xinput Emulation driver that will make an Xbox 360 controller appear in your device manager. And that happens even if you don’t have one.

That allowed you to quickly configure the games to run on without keyboard and mouse on devices like the smartphone.

What issues did AMD fix?

AMD has worked hard to fix some important issues that affected players of big game names like Sniper Elite 4, Red Dead Redemption 2, Destiny 2, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Control.

The list is a lot longer but you can read it on the AMD page.
