Microsoft Testing Window 10 Update with 'Ultimate Performance' Mode

Microsoft releases first Windows 10 'Redstone 5' test build; adds new app preview program

Essentially, what's happening here is that we've reached the point where the next Windows 10 update (Redstone 4) is nearly due, so therefore close to finalized, and thus Microsoft has begun work on Redstone 5 testing, releasing an initial build to Insiders who've previously chosen the "skip ahead" ring.

Microsoft has just unveiled a new "Ultimate Performance" power plan that's coming to Windows 10 Pro. It's designed for power users with high performance workstations, and will include special power management features to ensure performance is as best as a system will allow.

Troopers blocked southbound Interstate 5 just north of state Route 516 and turned drivers around in the northbound lanes. Kent police said there was a "large police presence" around the campus and asked people to avoid the area.

The new power plan is still at the experimental stage but has been released as part of Windows Insider Builds 17101 and 17604. Likewise, Insiders who want to test out the next major update to Windows 10 can "skip ahead" and start playing with Microsoft's first Redstone 5 build, which is now available. Insiders who are in the Skip Ahead ring don't need to opt in to get these previews.

In addition to the new power scheme, the Windows 10 testing builds also reveals enhancements to the UWP File System Access by giving more controls to you to decide which UWP apps can access your full file system.

Ultimate Performance is geared towards workstation PCs, allowing users to reach the "Absolute maximum performance" their machines are capable of by making trade-offs in power consumption. If at any time you change your mind about the decision, you can go to Settings Privacy where you'll find a new Settings page for File System Access. The new plan, which users can select as soon as they update to the newest version of Windows 10, will prioritize performance over energy efficiency, and will consume more power as a result. Unfortunately, that sounds quite boring, so Microsoft has made a decision to call its new mode "Ultimate Performance", which should get your IT department all hot and bothered. Like other power management modes available on Windows 10, this mode is customizable. It will not be available on battery-powered laptops. It is also one of the updates shipped by Microsoft on Patch Tuesday.
