New Windows 10 Ultimate Performance mode is meant for power users

Windows 10 logoIf youre someone who likes to squeeze every bit of performance out of your workstation then youre going to like what Microsoft has announced today. The company is adding a new power scheme to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations which will allow users to extract slightly more performance out of their machines. Its called Ultimate Performance more. Microsoft has introduced it as part of the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17101 for those on the Fast ring.

Microsoft developed this new power scheme to provide the absolute maximum performance to Windows 10 users. It has special power management features which will make sure that performance and efficiency tradeoffs in the OS are minimized for the absolute best performance.

It builds on the existing High-Performance policy and goes a step further to eliminate micro-latencies associated with fine grained power management techniques, Microsoft explains. Since the power scheme is optimized for reducing micro-latencies it may directly impact hardware and consume more power than the default balanced power plan.

This is why Microsoft is now enabling the new power scheme on battery-powered machines and keeping it limited to high-end workstations only. As previously mentioned, its not going to be available on every Windows 10 version, just Windows 10 Pro for Workstations.

Microsoft is going to roll out this new power scheme with the next major Windows 10 update thats expected to be released in March or April this year.
