drivers updated, everything is fine.
But 1usmus power plan is still slightly better than AMD Performance.

What the big deal with those "Ryzen" power plan when there's literally only one to two settings are changed, and nothing magical that can have a huge impact on performance.

Balanced plans compare:

Not everything is shown in the UI.... actually very little is shown in the UI for the end user. That is why 1usmus released his tuned power profiles to better accommodate the best core selection by windows scheduler (just one of many examples).

This is what you get by using powercfg /Qh, which returns the hidden and non-hidden "user controllable" settings.

you can also cross check with
Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\cimv2\power -Class Win32_PowerSetting
and
Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\cimv2\power -Class Win32_PowerSettingInSubgroup
in powershell to see there's nothing missing.

Didn't the guy Stilt say there was no difference awhile ago. If I remember right it was right after it came out.

On the Aorus Master x570 boost behavior seems the same no difference - but runs fine
