Microsoft's target: Two Windows 10 feature updates per year
Dubbed Power Throttling, the upcoming feature will help Windows spend "minimal possible battery" on apps running in the background, which Microsoft says will allow for up to 11 percent less CPU-based power consumption. Build 15014 included a power management slider that appeared when you clicked the battery icon in the system notification area. Well after the March 2017 Windows update, one user discovered two new functions added to system file "wuaueng.dll" adding two new checks: "IsCPUSupported (void)" and "IsDeviceServiceable (void)".
Microsoft just released a major Windows 10 update.
The feature is aimed at improving CPU power efficiency by throttling background tasks. That latter date is much earlier than I had expected for the next Windows 10 version, codenamed "Redstone 3"; I was looking at November.
The user, known as Zeffy, uploaded patches to GitHub that would enable Windows 7 and 8/8.1 users who are running on Intel seventh generation processors (Kaby Lake), AMD Bristol Ridge (Zen/Ryzen) and Qualcomm 8996 to install the security updates.
As for how power throttling works, the feature gives Windows 10 users access to powerful multitasking capabilities while significantly enhancing their battery life.
Windows Insiders are already trying out builds in the Redstone 3 track, though they've been fairly sparse in terms of new features so far.
A very popular and whizbang cool feature that has been part of Windows 10 since it was first released in July of 2015 is Windows Hello.
Lastly, users can also manually opt-out specific apps from power-throttling by going to Battery Settings in Settings System Battery Battery Usage by App.
Power throttling, final name still to be discussed, is being rolled out in the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview. Power Throttling is initially created to work with apps out of the box. This change reflects what's been happening with many other Microsoft products; the on-premises/local versions are updated less frequently and may not include all of the functionality that is in the cloud versions.
After all of the hype and anticipation leading up to the public release of the Creators Update for Windows 10, you might be left wondering, what's next?
