As I have noticed, the latest chipset drives icludes and installs AMD Ryzen Balanced Power Profile.
It was said that AMD integrated the power profile setting to Windows Balanced, therefore AMD Ryzen Balanced Power Profile should not be included inside chipset drivers.
So what is happening? What it is better to use? Windows 10 Balanced or AMD Ryzen Balanced ??

el_arantis, I do not think it makes any difference. I did a fresh install of W10 last week and there is no AMD Ryzen Balanced plan. Since I installed my chip set drivers from AMD I assume this means AMD stopped shipping AMD Ryzen Balanced plan. BTW, you should always get your AMD code from AMD, never the MB vendor. Enjoy, John.
