I notice in Game Options, there is a High Performance Power Plan setting. I assume setting this to on in the Windows Power Management settings, there might be some improvement in CMO performance. What should I be expecting? Better FPS, high res map? Anything? I already have a reasonable gaming rig about 5 years old.

CMO mainly depends on your CPU, so to improve performance, you'll want to improve your CPU performance; you could try overclocking it. To see if the High Performance setting is useful, you could use a benchmarking software and compare the scores with and without.
Note that no matter what the software will have some lag spikes; I have a 9900k at 5 GHz and I occasionally get freezes.

High Performance is always better. But I leave the switch off for my laptops. I manage the power plan myself. In some laptops, the CMO switch can actually interfere with the laptop's built in power manager and work against peak performance. I have done a bunch of benchmarking with a benchmark scenario. I have tested on 5-6 different laptops with different CPUs and GPUs. High performance of the CPU is a factor. The GPU does make a slight difference. SSDs and fast RAM were also factors.

As to performance boosts, power settings can help. The best measure is the time cycles in the diagnostics display of CMO.
