AMD release new Ryzen power profiles and upgrades to Ryzen Master

 
Last night AMD released their third Ryzen community update, detailing some of AMD's plans to improve the performance of their latest CPUs and improve Ryzen user experiences.
 
With this new update, AMD focused on Windows 10 power plans, where AMD revealed that they have created their own custom power plan for Windows 10, titled "AMD Ryzen Balanced power plan". This new power plan is designed to better utilise Ryzen's power saving technologies while also allowing Ryzen to react faster under load, giving the CPU more control of itself while using similar amounts of power at idle.  
 
Ryzen users can now download AMD's new "Ryzen Balanced Power Plan" from AMD here. Users will need to extract this file (Ryzen_Balanced_Plan.ppkg) and then confirm the installation after clicking on the file and accepting the prompt. This new power profile will then be added to your power plan options and can then be installed when the user wishes.

This new power plan will give Ryzen CPUs more control of their power states and allow them to react faster to changing workloads, giving users a significant performance uplift.  

Below is a table that compares AMD's new "Ryzen Balanced power plan" and Windows' default "High Performance" plan, both of which offer a large performance increase in gaming and any CPU limited application.  

 It is clear that Windows 10's "High Performance" options still offers the best performance in most scenarios, though the new "AMD Ryzen balanced" power plan does offer similar performance throughout.

On April 11th AMD now plans on releasing a new version of their Ryzen Master monitoring tool, which will come with two noteworthy updates that should improve the Ryzen user experience. 

The first of these two updates is that Ryzen Master will now report Junction Temperature rather than tCTL, removing the thermal offset on AMD's Ryzen 1800X, 1700X and 1600X, effectively allowing all Ryzen CPUs to report the same thermals. This should dramatically reduce the confusion regarding Ryzen's thermal limits. 

The second update will remove the need for HPET when installing or using Ryzen Master, when running on a motherboard with AGESA version 1.0.0.4 or higher, which will allow Ryzen users to use Ryzen Master without HPET. HPET is known to reduce Ryzen's performance, so this change is very welcome.
