In a recent blog post Microsoft detailed some new features that have become available for Microsoft’s Inside Program fast ring users. The one that catches most attention is “Ultimate Performance Mode”. This is a performance plan integrated into Windows, which more or less throws all of the power saving features out of the window to make sure your system is running at peak performance.
Microsoft says that in this mode latencies and microstutters should be reduced as much as possible. This feature is currently available in the workstation environment, and should be especially deployed in mission critical scenarios. With this putting full power into your components your power consumption goes up, so Microsoft is not making this feature available for battery-powered devices. We are also not sure when or if consumers will be able to use this feature. I don’t see why Microsoft wouldn’t eventually make it available.
