Windows 10's new ‘Ultimate Performance' mode sacrifices efficiency for raw power

One year ago   |   By The Next Web

Microsoft generally rolls out new features in its Insider builds for testers before they are released to the public. Yesterday's build 17101 includes a feature that may be particularly intriguing for power users and professionals: an ‘Ultimate Performance' mode. It's basically exactly what it sounds like - the highest performance setting in Windows.

Next Windows 10 update brings new ‘Ultimate Performance' mode to desktops

One year ago   |   By TheBoyGeniusReport

As part of a raft of updates coming this spring, Microsoft will be bringing a new power management system that "reduces micro-latencies" and enhances overall system performance through a series of tiny performance bumps.
