AMD and Nvidia have released new drivers adding support for a feature Microsoft introduced with the May 2020 update of Windows 10, an update that still isn’t available to everyone. The feature in question is Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling (HAGS for short), and it basically passes memory management control from the CPU to the GPU. That should theoretically free up the CPU a little and can potentially equate to an small performance boost. 

Any boost you might see will be dependent on the hardware you have at your disposal though. According to various early reports it seems to help budget oriented hardware more than those on the bleeding edge. There’s a chance that game performance can be negatively impacted too, as former PCG hardware guru, Jarred Walton, discovered over on Tom’s Hardware when he tested Nvidia GPU Hardware Scheduling with AMD and Intel CPUs.
