[AMD] Balanced power plan optimized for AMD Ryzen™ processors

The AMD Ryzen Balanced power plan

Because of these findings, the new AMD Ryzen Balanced power plan reduces the timers and thresholds for P-state transitions to improve clockspeed ramping. This lets the hardware take full control more often. We’ve also disabled core parking for more wakeful cores. As you can see in the chart below, the performance gains can be substantial—on par with the High Performance plan, in fact!

Is this a stop-gap measure till windows properly handles the CPUs under the default balanced plan, or is this it?

Seems a little poor as a permanent solution.

Well, if MS has not done it yet, there is hardly a better option within AMD's power. After all, the default is made and controlled by MS.

Well this could explain some things.
It could also open up the understanding that maybe windows is inhibiting CPUs in general, and not just AMD.
It could be that their power plans are more centered around Intel only, and maybe it is just that AMD were the first to actually loot into it, and it Intel also look into it, they could bring a better solution and better performance for their CPUs that what they assumed windows does. Or Intel CPUs already well optimized and AMD have been taking a "beating" from this for a long time, and only now understand why.
but what state in the article, sounds like it also has the potential to "infect" Intel performance as well, since windows doesn't separate physical with virtual core.

Let's not forget a Ryzen specific power plan could also be because the CPU's could function far differently than Intel or old AMD so maybe we need a custom plan to get the most out of these. Not to much of a problem if that's the case as far as I can see, maybe M$ will add it in a Windows update at a later date just to make it easier for everyone and have it hidden unless you have a compatible CPU.

AMD said they would incorporate it in their Chipset Driver as permanent solution.

I read a comment on another forum about a guy with Intel trying to activate SpeedStep (or Speed Shift not sure if this was the name). He compared his custom profile with the Amd Balanced Power Plan and discover that they had made the same change that he needed to do for Intel. From this he concluded that the default balance plan is not optimal for Intel too.
