I recently made a switch to an Intel-based system, but stayed with AMD in terms of GPU. One of the major conveniences that I noticed were missing was the Power tab in CCC which lets you customize the Windows power profile based on your selected AMD preset.
Here's what I did:
Created a new shortcut and typed "powercfg -setactive <Long GUID_Scheme associated with the desired profile>".
To get that long identifier to replace <above> , pull up a commancd prompt and type "powercfg -list", and it will list the string associated with each power profile.
Store the shortcuts where you like and you can now add the shortcuts in the "Application" window when you go to save the CCC preset.
Currently, when I'm not gaming, I run a modified version of the Balanced profile, and High Performance for 3D environments.
I did a quick search to see if a similar post had been created and was unable to find one, so enjoy! If this is a repeat, my apologies.
