AMD Ryzen Balanced Power Profile

Hello everyone,


I upgraded to an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X processor and installed all drivers etc.

I realized that AMD Ryzen Balanced Power Profile keeps my cpu at idle state to aprox. 3.9GHz

I selected the Windows Balanced profile and now lows to 2.2GHz when idle.

Of course Cool & Quiet etc. are normally enabled at BIOS.

Is that normal? Do I have to do anything special?
