Ultimate Performance Mode is a power plan deployed with Windows 10 v1803, designed for workstations and designed to optimize operating system performance. Although it is intended to improve performance, IMO, it will help a lot for players as well as for anyone with any intensity task. In this manual, we will learn how to enable the Ultimate Performance Power Plan in Windows 10.
Ultimate Performance Power Plan is only available for high-end PCs that run directly under power, and there is no direct way to enable it for all PCs. However, I won’t recommend this mode for laptops because it uses a lot of battery power, but if you are sure you want to, you can use it for your best gaming experience.
Ultimate Performance Power Plan in Windows 10
Let’s try to understand why this mode was built. On servers and workstations where performance is a priority, Microsoft eliminated all factors that ensured balanced power consumption or long battery life. Many companies have to do the work and can maintain the cost of electricity consumption because the results are needed in time.
Microsoft has developed this mode to help users get the most out of their hardware. By default, this mode is only available on workstations. This mode is not available for systems that use a battery. But with this hack, you can activate it for everyone. However, if you activate it on a device with a battery, the battery will discharge quickly. You can also activate it on your desktop.
Enable Ultimate Performance Power Plan
Follow these steps to enable Ultimate Performance Power Plan on Windows 10. Applications run faster in this mode. However, it uses a lot of battery power and if you are on a laptop, make sure it stays connected to the power supply.
Make sure you have upgraded your PC to Windows 10 version 1803. You can check this under Settings > System > System > Info.
Now open Settings >System > Power and Standby > Additional Power Settings.
Under To customize a power plan, select Show additional plans.
If you do not see Ultimate Performance Mode, follow the steps below.
Open a command prompt as administrator.
At the command prompt, copy the following command and press Enter.
powercfg - duplication scheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-a00-03f14749eb61
Minimize command prompt and parameters >System > Power and standby > Additional power parameters.
Select the ultimate performance power plan.
You can further customize the feeding plan.
Windows 10 standard modes are Balanced, Power Saver and High Performance. Ultimate Performance goes even further.
Ultimate performance mode highlights :
- Hard disk never goes into sleep mode
- Sleep and sleep are disabled.
- The processor status, grouping policy and maximum processor speed are exhausted.
Disable ultimate power mode
- Return to advanced power settings.
- Next to Ultimate Performance Mode, click Change Plan Settings.
- In the next window, you can delete it.
So if you don’t see it on your laptop after using this command, your system may not support it.
If you have a PC that does not use the battery, I would strongly recommend using it when you play, or if you use video editing software that requires a lot of CPU/GPU power to get the best results in a lot less time.
