AMD hasn't had the smoothest launch with Ryzen, but the company is quickly refining its new CPU architecture and now we have the latest release of its core logic (chipset) drivers, for Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.
AMD's new v17.10 WHQL drivers include the new Windows power management plan 'Ryzen Balanced Power' which will be better than the stock 'Balanced' power plan in Windows 10, something that will allow better power management through Windows, to the silicon-level power management logic inside of Ryzen processors through SenseMI.
This includes fine-grained voltage and clock gating over individual cores, something that would normally trip up latency problems with OS-level power management through P-state triggers. The new power plan is compatible with AMD's new A320, B350, and X370 chipsets, and is available right here.
