    Extended Processor Power Managment Options

    While browsing around I stumbled onto something, I have never see.
    I thought you over clocker's also might be interested, and hoped maybe one of the Microsoft MVP's like @Brink, @badrobot, or @essenbe, might be able to shed some light on this.

    Has any one ever seem these extra processor power management options on their systems?

    I found an article on it at Microsoft Hardware Dev Center, but it is a bit to technical to me: Processor power management options - Windows 10 hardware dev
    Core parking engine - Makes global scalability decisions about the workload and determines the optimum set of compute cores to execute with.
    Performance state engine - Makes per-processor performance scaling decisions.
    Platform specific controls - Implements the mechanics of state transitions and optionally provides feedback about the effectiveness of OS state decisions and runtime platform constraints.
    I am way too inexperienced with such things, and would never play with the extra settings, but was just curious, as to how the person who posted the 1st screenshot was able to get to these settings(He didn't even know why they suddenly showed up in his power management).

    Methinks that only newest Intel processors have such advanced power features. AMD certainly don't have it (yet). Core Parking is definitively Intel only feature. Zen from AMD is supposed to have some new kind of intelligent core switching and and load calibration.
