I recently switched from Intel CPU to AMD Ryzen 7 2700x CPU. For Intel CPU, under "power options"->"processor power management"->"minimum processor state", the default is 5%. For AMD using the "AMD Ryzen Balanced" power plan, the default is 90%.
I am puzzled why AMD wants to use such a high minimum processor state. Wouldn't this waste power? I set it down to 5%. So far, the PC works fine. There should be some reasons why AMD set 90% as default. However, I am not sure what are the side effects and risks.
I would like to ask what are the side effects and risks of changing from the default 90% to 5%?
I am using Windows 10.
