How To Turn On Windows 10 Ultimate Performance Power Scheme.

How To Turn On Windows 10 Ultimate Performance Power Scheme.
 
This should work with both Home and Pro versions. Ultimate Performance Mode is a power scheme which is geared towards reducing micro-latencies. It can have a impact on hardware and consume more power than the default balanced plan. Does it help? Give it a try and see.

 

Important: To Enable Ultimate Performance Power Plan Make sure your computer is updated to Windows 10 version 1803.

 

NOTE: The Ultimate Performance Mode is currently not available on battery powered systems.
 
First you will want to run Windows PowerShell as Administrator. Once PowerShell is open copy and paste the following into the PowerShell and press enter.
 
powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61

Now go into Windows Settings and click on System.

Once you are in the System, to the left click on "Power & sleep", then click on "Additional power settings".

When the Power Options opens, you may have to drop down the "Show additional plans" to get to the Ultimate Performance setting.

With the Ultimate Performance setting showing, simply select it and if you want to change more settings in this plan, click the "Change plan settings" to the right and go through the list.

Microsoft's statement on this power scheme.


 

Quote

 

A new power scheme – Ultimate Performance: Demanding workloads on workstations always desire more performance. As part of our effort to provide the absolute maximum performance we’re introducing a new power policy called Ultimate Performance. Windows has developed key areas where performance and efficiency tradeoffs are made in the OS. Over time, we’ve amassed a collection of settings which allow the OS to quickly tune the behavior based on user preference, policy, underlying hardware or workload.

 

This new policy builds on the current High-Performance policy, and it goes a step further to eliminate micro-latencies associated with fine grained power management techniques. The Ultimate Performance Power plan is selectable either by an OEM on new systems or selectable by a user. To do so, you can go to Control Panel and navigate to Power Options under Hardware and Sound (you can also “run” Powercfg.cpl). Just like other power policies in Windows, the contents of the Ultimate Performance policy can be customized.

 

As the power scheme is geared towards reducing micro-latencies it may directly impact hardware; and consume more power than the default balanced plan. The Ultimate Performance power policy is currently not available on battery powered systems.

Are you sure this works.   I don't see any smoke. 

 

Then you most certainly did it right.
