Can I set a permanent governor for the CPU?

I specifically want to set the governor performance on my desktop PC.

I can actually change the governor with: sudo cpupower frequency-set -g performance

I found a reddit post

commands to enable service for cpupower and then do the governor command and it should stay there across boots:

sudo systemctl enable cpupower.service
sudo systemctl start cpupower.service

You can do both at once with --now:

sudo systemctl enable --now cpupower.service
