    Interesting, almost the exact opposite of the "speed then sleep" power saving technique that Intel have previously championed (running a task at max performance so it completes as fat as possible, then switching down to the lowest power state now that the core is idle).

    The most recent Insider builds can show whether a process is being 'Background Moderated' [being throttled] in task manager, however my CPU doesn't support the feature so it's just a long list of 'No'

    Question for those in the Insider programme: can you decide which processes to throttle? Or is it all Windows' own doing?

    Basically 'what Gareth said', however the relevant settings only show if your PC has a battery connected so I can't sceenshot them [plus my CPU doesn't support the throttling function anyway].

    Cheers. Having coffee before reading an article might be a good idea. ;)
