A new setting you can put in your system IF you are running 1803 (OS build 17134.48) is the "Ultimate Performance" plan. Open up powershell (as administrator) and type the command:

powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61

Go into settings, system, power and sleep, select "additional power settings" under "related settings" and you now should have "Ultimate Performance" as a selection. This will only work if running this version of windows. Am not sure if this only works for Windows 10 Professional.  Type "winver" in the search box to check what version you are running, first. This is for "higher end PCs"

This works under Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, on my HP laptop with an A12-9700P APU.

Anyone can set Ultimate Performance by opening command as administrator, and running this code:

@For /F "usebackq tokens=*" %%r in (`CScript "GetGUID.vbs" //Nologo`) Do Set GUID=%%r
powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61 %GUID%
powercfg -SETACTIVE %GUID%
