Windows 10 Adds New "Ultimate Performance" Power Mode For Power Users

Windows 10 Adds New

"Up until today-Insiders who opted into Skip Ahead previously were receiving the same exact RS4 builds as Insiders in the Fast ring since Build 17017. These builds will come from the RS_PRERELEASE branch", Microsoft explains. So if you were part of Skip Ahead before, you will be able to get the new Redstone 5 build without having to do anything. The company is nearing the release of Redstone 4, which is yet to have an official name, and plans to ship the update to the public sometime in March or April of this year.

The first build for Redstone 5 is build 17604. Well, there's nothing huge here, with some emoji getting an update, and the expansion of Windows app permissions to let the user decide which UWP apps get access to Windows 10's full file system.

The mode will only work on non-battery-powered high-performance workstations running Windows 10 Pro, so it's not aimed at your average laptop user, or even gamers. It's essentially a step up from High Performance, and fine-tunes things by eliminating the "micro-latencies associated with fine grained power management techniques", Microsoft notes.

For the time being, this new power mode is not available on battery-operated systems (laptops and such), as it can consume more power than other available plans, and shorten battery life as a result.

Global sea level surging at faster rate, says study
The study informed that the melting of glaciers in Greenland and Antarctic are the main drivers of sea level rise. Nerem told InsideClimate News that the study is important because it relies completely on observational data.

'Ultimate Performance' is designed for high-end PCs as part of the newly-launched Windows 10 Pro for Workstations OS, and shaves off valuable latency by removing a ton of unnecessary micro-processes from the system.

Finally, we mentioned the testing of individual Windows apps at the outset of this story, and Microsoft has indeed introduced a new Windows App Preview program. Among the new features added is a new performance scheme called Ultimate Performance.

Windows 10's latest version would be arriving on machines in the coming month.

To try out the new apps, first join the Windows Insiders program, following the instructions here.
