When creating 3D models or running intensive tasks, people would want to wring every ounce of performance out of their computers as possible. It is then considered a good thing that Microsoft has released a preview of the Windows 10 build in the Fast ring that features a new Ultimate Performance mode if the user is running Pro for Workstations. As implied by the name, this is an improvement that is intended for people for whom even the High-Performance mode is not enough — it pushed power management out the window in order to remove “micro-latencies” and improve raw speed. Users can set it by themselves. However, PC makers will have the choice of shipping systems with the said feature turned on.
Currently, Ultimate Performance is not available for tablets or laptops. However, Microsoft suggests that it could likely change.
There are some additions for people who are using everyday PCs. Just like Samsung, Microsoft is now moving towards more familiar emoji. It also helps that a search for those emoji in more languages and give you more control over access to file systems for Universal Windows Platform apps. However, as a rule, this preview is aimed at pros who would want to see how well a workstation can operate when there is nothing holding it back.
