I'm currently running windows 10 and i noticed the addition of a new powerplan that is added to the powerplan menu. 
This plan is called Balanced AMD powerplan << optimized for ryzen processors and what this does effectively, based on the options i can view, is pressing the Ryzen 5 into 90% to 100% of its max frequency ( either from 3,3 to 3,4 ghz or with powerboost 3,8, 3,9 ) even for idle. 

Is this really the most optimal running state for everything i do on my p.c. // browsing, listening music, watching video's etc ?
