It disables core parking, which is a power saving feature Windows employs that turns off unused logical cores. Core parking can sometimes cause slowdowns by interfering with thread scheduling or by the very small delay in waking up a core.

once it has located it, look on the right hand side labeled MinValue and MaxValue double click on each value and make sure they are both set to '0'.
There are better ways to do this.

You can unhide the feature in the power management settings and control it on the fly.
(Default is 1, 0 unhides the attribute)
You get access to this setting:
100% disables core parking completely. 0% allows all cores to be parked.
