AMD launched its next-gen Ryzen CPUs with a huge marketing train, but the gaming performance on Ryzen hasn't been so great so far - but, AMD have been quick on their 'Community Update' rollouts, with the third one now out.

AMD first launched Ryzen with tweaks to the High Performance power plan in Windows 10, and now with the third Community Update, AMD made tweaks to the Ryzen Balanced plan, which can be download here. AMD says that with the new Ryzen Balanced plan, there should be performance close to that of the High Performance setting - with AMD providing a graph that shows there's only a few percentage points between the Balanced and High Performance plans.

 

In the near future, AMD will make this new Balanced power plan part of the chipset drivers for Ryzen CPUs - while the power plan changes sometimes providing less performance in games - but AMD states "there are enough [affected] games to warrant a change".
