According to, you can theoretically set "powersave" (which works as ACPI ondemand) as the default governor for intel pstate, in addition to "performance". It should probably be explained a bit further in this article. I haven't, however, run any proper benchmark and I've just started testing it in real life on a laptop without apparent performance impact. See also the discussion here:, although it dates from quite a while ago.

I just want to note, this applies also to the pstate description in the Power management article.

Merge this article into Power_management/Guide

As this article is widely overlapping with the Power management/Guide readers searching advise for e.g. CPU Frequency scaling have to compare both articles. That's time consuming. So why not merge this into Power management/Guide? --Charles17 (talk) 08:26, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
