Microsoft reveals new Windows 10 Workstations edition for power users

Microsoft logoMicrosoft is officially unveiling Windows 10 Pro for Workstations today. While the operating system was originally rumored back in June, Microsoft is providing the full details on the special edition today. As expected, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is primarily designed for server grade PC hardware and true power users. Windows 10 Pro for Workstations scales up for machines with a high number of logical processors and large amounts of RAM.

The software giant is making four major changes to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations to support high-end PC hardware. Resilient File System (ReFS) will be enabled by default, providing more resilience against data corruption, and optimization for handling large data volumes and auto-correcting. Windows 10 Pro for Workstations will also include support for non-volatile memory modules (NVDIMM-N) with persistent memory. This means that read and write speeds will be as fast as possible, and files will still be there even if a workstation is switched off.

Microsoft is also adding faster file support into Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. Utilizing SMB Direct, Microsoft is supporting Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) capability so that network adapters can operate at a low latency without much CPU usage. This should increase throughput for file transfers across high speed networks.

Finally, Microsoft is expanding its hardware support in Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. Server grade Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors will be supported, with up to four physical CPUs and up to 6TB of RAM. Windows 10 Pro is currently limited to two physical CPUs and up to 2TB of RAM, so this edition of Windows is clearly targeting high performance configurations. Windows 10 Pro for Workstations will be available alongside the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update later this year.
