The microprocessor frequency of a CPU specifies the frequency that the CPU’s core will be. The higher the frequency the faster the processing speed.

The frequency that the CPU operates at is not the only thing that affects the performance that the CPU offers. For that you still have to look at the CPU efficiency, which is measured by how many Instructions Per Clock (IPC) the CPU can process

An example of how the Power Options menu looks with the Maximum processor frequency enabled:

The following tutorial demonstrates how to add or remove the “Maximum processor frequency setting from the Power Options menu.

How to Add/Remove Maximum Processor Frequency in Windows 10 Power Options

You can add and remove the Maximum processor frequency setting to the Power Options menu from the command line.

1. Open the elevated Command Prompt window.

2. Type one of the following commands into the command line, depending on which one it is that you want to use.

To Add Maximum Processor Frequency:

powercfg -attributes SUB_PROCESSOR 75b0ae3f-bce0-45a7-8c89-c9611c25e100 -ATTRIB_HIDE

To Remove Maximum Processor Frequency (Default):

powercfg -attributes SUB_PROCESSOR 75b0ae3f-bce0-45a7-8c89-c9611c25e100 +ATTRIB_HIDE

You can now close the Command Prompt window.

That’s all.
