Windows 10 to get 'Ultimate Performance' mode for power users

You are probably familiar with the power scheme in Windows if you are conscious about the performance and efficiency of your system, and Microsoft has added a new power scheme for Windows 10 Pro users called the Ultimate Performance in the new Insider Preview.

As Microsoft has done in the past, it has created a fork in its Windows Insider program as it looks ahead to its next major upgrade.

So what are the main changes in these fresh builds?

A few days ago, Microsoft started opening up individual app preview programs.

"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". 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 Windows App Preview Program will now allow anyone to test out new versions of apps, simply by joining the Windows Insider program and choosing to preview new apps.

If you're a Windows Insider, do you plan to opt-in to any of the app previews? If you want to leave the preview program, you can do that from the app's Settings or about page and click the "Leave preview" button. The new mode will be available in the next Windows 10 update, expected to be released in March or April. You'll also be able to change some of the finer points of Ultimate Performance mode, such as when the display turns off and when the PC goes to sleep, along with advanced power settings for certain pieces of hardware.

Preview versions of all the apps listed above will be rolling out the coming days.

The Redstone 4 update, build 17101, is being released to Windows Insiders in the Fast release ring and the Redstone 5 update, build 17604, to those in the Skip Ahead ring. At this time, the first Redstone 5 build is only available to Windows Insiders part of Skip Ahead, which was originally available to a small group of users and isn't open to any new Insiders at the moment.
