Microsoft Reveal Ultimate Performance Power Policy for Windows 10 Pro

Like many developers leading up to a major update, Microsoft has been revealing more information about what is coming in the Redstone 4 update for Windows 10, which might be named the Spring Creators Update. The changes recently revealed include updates to Emoji, the ability to control Windows App file system access, and an Ultimate Performance mode for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. The UWP file access control means you will be able to enable or disable all or specific applications from accessing the all of the files on your system. The Ultimate Performance mode is obviously the most interesting of these three changes, so it can have its own paragraph.

The Ultimate Performance mode is a new power plan that should go beyond High Performance, specifically to reduce or eliminate micro-latencies. The description in the blog post reads to me that over the years, Microsoft has developed many power tuning methods to balance performance and efficiency, and these are still in play even with High Performance. Ultimate Performance removes these "fine grained power management techniques" that were introducing the micro-latency, which should improve the performance for some workloads. It is currently not available on battery powered systems, because of how it may draw more power.

The post does have Ultimate Performance as a feature specifically for Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, along with a change to what tiles are presented in the Start Menu by default, so this may or may not come to the consumer versions of Windows 10.
