Windows 10’s GPU scheduler can help increase your computer’s speed. Microsoft released this feature in the May2020 Update. Many gamers have tested it to see if they like it. Your GPU may not be able to support it.

What is GPU Hardware Scheduling?
In general, Windows Display Driver Model GT Scheduler (WDDM), manages several processes that submit tasks to a GPU. To improve efficiency, each CPU will submit several commands at once.
Frame Buffering, also called buffering, improves performance through a better framerate. Once you press a button the CPU will submit the new batch to the GPU.
Some of the tasks your CPU handles to schedule the hardware-accelerated GPU Scheduling feature are passed to the GPU to reduce input lag.
Do you think it is a good idea for GPU hardware scheduling to be enabled?
Hardware scheduling may be worth considering if your computer has a lower or mid-tier processor. If you can achieve 100% load in some games, you should activate this feature.
Your decision is final. Microsoft claims you won’t notice any significant differences in-game. You might notice an improvement in your CPU heat and load.
