How To Enable The Ultimate Performance Power Plan In Windows 10 / 11

The Ultimate power performance was introduced by Microsoft in 2018 with its Windows 10 update to boost the performance of high-end PCs. The main aim of this power plan is to diminish the micro-latencies experienced by fine-grained power management systems.

Even if there’s the slightest delay between when the OS identifies that a small hardware piece requires more power and when the power is delivered, it’s called micro-latency. The slightest of delay, even a nano-second can make a difference. The Ultimate power saving mode disables the Power saving mode to optimize performance. You won’t find this option in systems running on battery since it can consume a lot of energy and drain your battery much faster.

Therefore, this mode is best for those involved in video editing or 3D designing etc. So, let’s see how to enable this power plan.
