The minimum processor state for Ryzens balanced power plan is set to 99% by default, can anyone explain why on earth it's so high compared to Windows own balanced power plan where it's set to 5% by default?
Could it be harmful for the CPU to lower the minimum processor state to maybe 20-25%?
I have a Ryzen 3700X and I have the Minimum Processor state at 5% and Maximum at 100%.
I haven't seen any problems related to those settings on my computer.
All that means is that when the processor doesn't need to run at 100% it will run at the minimum 5% instead to save power. But when the CPU needs more power than it will automatically increase the power up to the Maximum 100%.
Also if you minimum power state is 99% then your processor will be running hotter all the time.
