Ryzen 5000 series CPUs do not require a special Ryzen Power Profile, so it is not installed with Chipset driver package. Please use the Windows Balanced Power Profile for these procesors. Previous generation Ryzen processors will continue to use the Ryzen Balanced Power Profile for optimal performance and this is included in the Chipset driver package.

Starting with AMD Chipset Driver 02.10.13.408, the processor power can be adjusted via Performance and Energy slider on systems running Windows 10 2004 and later.

The middle position of the slider – Is the Windows default, corresponding with the standard settings for the Windows 10 “Balanced” power plan.

This option automatically balances system performance and energy usage by adjusting to full performance when you need it and power-saving mode when you do not.

Best performance – The best plan for maximizing the system performance. Uses more energy.
Best energy saving – The best plan to save energy/Electricity consumption. Saves energy by reducing computer performance.

Please note, the perforamnce and energy slider will not be available if you use the Power Saving or Maximum Performance Power Profiles.

not only am i missing power plan but TPM isnt setting itself up either......its on in bios...msi x570 mpg gaming edge wifi. any idea as to why? ive asked all over but no answer.. thought for a moment amd didnt include fTPM this time around. would uninstalling the driver in device manager perhaps work? or would it make matters worse? i do know that it doesnt does NOT show up unless i check hidden devices.

I don't have this slider.

How do you get it?

Are you using the Power Saver or High Performance profiles, or a different power profile based on either of those profiles? 

Have you got the latest AMD Chipset drivers installed?

Are you using Windows 10 20H" build?

If your answer is no to any of the above, that will be why you don't have the slider.

this does not work for me, I have the latest BIOs 3202 on ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) and Ryzen 5950x.

After installing the AMd chipset driver 2.10.13.408 the geekbench  just shows significat less performance !

I checked the Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Power Options and found out that the Ryzen power options are not there anymore.

uninstalling and reinstalling the AMD chipset driver does not help for me!

Zen 3 does not need the special Ryzen power plans, so the chipset drivers don't install it. That's normal.
