Where is performance option


Are you asking about a performance option higher than the standard?

yeah i do

echo performance | sudo tee /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/scaling_governor

That sets your CPU governor to 'high performance', and thus your power mode to 'high performance'.

Note that Linux automatically uses the 'high performance' CPU governor during boot, then switches to either ondemand or schedutil (and sometimes powersave for laptops), unless you've set it to something else (I use the conservative CPU governor).

You'll likely have to issue that command each time you boot, by putting it into Startup Applications. Note that your CPU is going to be going balls-out (a reference to the old steam engines with centrifugal ball-and-spring governors) all the time, so your CPU fan is going to be louder.

With modern CPUs mode-switching to higher performance in µseconds, I didn't perceive any performance benefit to keeping the CPU 'cranked to 11' all the time.
