Microsoft has announced a new edition of Windows 10, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. This is targeted for the higher end workstations that can include multiple server grade CPU’s, large amounts of RAM, and multiple HDD’s in a RAID configuration. So, naturally, it includes some home hobbyists! This is great news for those in various industries that require an OS that can take advantage of the much higher powered systems they are required to use. The new edition of Windows is expected to be released as part of the Fall Creators Update this fall.
Performance is a very important requirement in this new world of fast paced innovation and we will continue to invest on Windows 10 Pro for Workstations to enable Windows power users to maximize every aspect of their high-performance device. Windows 10 Pro for Workstations utilizes significant investments, that Windows has made in recent releases, for scaling up across a high number of logical processors and large amounts of memory. Our architectural changes in the Windows kernel take full advantage of high-end processors families, such as Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron, that package a high number of cores in single or multi-processor configurations.
