Easily Increasing Vista Performance

July 19, 2007

This was a relatively simple tip (and it could just be my imagination), but the following tip seems to have had a noticeable impact on Vista’s responsiveness:

The default power plan (in Control Panel, Power Options) in Vista is set to Balanced. Changing it to High Performance will increase the CPU utilization up to 50%.

You can go further and Change Plan Settings, Change Advanced Power Settings, go to Processor Power Management and set Minimum Processor State to 100% and Maximum Processor State to 100%.

For more detail see Microsoft’s paper of processor power management.
