    What's the recommended minimum processor state?


    Hello, I'm a gamer, and I'm wondering what I should set the minimum processor state on for my PC? It's currently at 100% along with max processor state sitting also at 100% in Power Management. Should I leave it this way? What's the recommended state for gaming?


    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Minimum Processor State

    Hi I kindly request to reply to my question.

    My laptop runs with an AMD Processor and it's really slow when the (Minimum Processor State) is at
    (20%) the default rate fixed my the manufacturer. But when I increase the rate above (50%) the device works perfectly.

    I would like to know? whether there will be any problem if I continue to keep it above the rate of (50%).

  3. Minimum Processor State pros and cons

    Hi,

    I have read nearly every post in relation to "Minimum Processor State."

    However, most of them are dated and almost about computer issues, heating problems and worries about CPU wear.

    I would like to know if there are any benefits in setting the Minimum Processor State to '0' or '100.'

    I have tired both.

    I found that setting it to '0' allows the computer to really stand-still, especially when it's not doing anything at '0%' utilisation, the computer is cool as ice.

    Conversely, when I set it to '100' it generates a little heat, which is not an issue, but the quality appears to be better. For example, watching videos and doing anything is faster, better, and sharper.

    So, do we set it to '0', '100' or '50'?

    [This question is for my HP Envy laptop, with i7-6700HQ, 16gb ram, Samsung 512g SSD, Windows 10 64x]

    Thanks.

    CPU Minimum Processor State useful on a desktop?


    Are it and maximum processor state useful on a desktop, or is it just for laptops? Lower and Maximum are both set to 100% for me.
    I read that if I lower the minimum, my cpu doesn't reach the max overclock level.
