I'd actually like to see these changes or additions to Windows Game Mode, Could be exciting

EDIT

According to a Microsoft person the new Game Mode allows more access to the hardware -

The fuel that often inspires creativity is play. With the Fall Creators Update, we’ve updated Game Mode, which allows your games to use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console, right from a new button on the Game bar. And to take advantage of this power, we have a fantastic lineup of Xbox Play Anywhere games coming including, Cuphead, Forza Motorsport 7, Super Lucky’s Tale and Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

Nice find! Definitely sounds like MS is trying to improve the PC Gaming experience. They've done little since trying to recommit to gaming.
Would love to see some benchmarrks if it benefits Shadow of War

Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why

I don't believe so. You should download it manually to get on the newest build. I haven't done so yet. I'm waiting for people to use it first to see if any bugs or glitches happen.

I have noticed something annoying with this new Creators Update driver, The displays Hz drops down to the minimum Freesync range, In the case of my monitor it's 40Hz, If I keep the monitors OSD open I can see the Hz change from 144 to 40, Makes the mouse feel very sluggish, It goes away during games etc... but when just using the mouse on the desktop or webpages it's not a nice experience, The moment I switch Freesync off it goes away and stays at 144Hz, I hope this gets fixed as having a ghosting mouse and sluggish desktop aint a good experience.
