New Windows 10 Pro for Workstations OS is coming with Fall Creators Update
Microsoft announced a new version of Windows for power users, enterprises and other organizations, called Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, that supports server-grade hardware and is designed to make high-end PCs more responsive and reliable.
Announced yesterday on Microsoft's Windows blog, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is expected to be available later this fall along with the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.
Windows 10 Pro for Workstations "comes with unique support for server grade PC hardware and is designed to meet demanding needs of mission critical and compute intensive workloads," Microsoft says. And related tweaks to the Windows kernel help the OS fully utilize high-end processors, including Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron, which feature a lot of cores in single and multi-processors, according to the company.
Here's a list of new features in the OS:
- Increased throughput — Leverages the full throughput of high speed networks where the network adapters coordinate the transfer of large amounts of data at line speed.
- Low latency — Provides extremely fast responses to network requests, and, as a result, makes remote file storage feel as if it is directly attached storage.
- Low CPU utilization — Uses fewer CPU cycles when transferring data over the network, which leaves more power available to other applications running on the system.

for other reasons recently cited across the web:
Nothing more irritating trying to connect to a network feature, days later you realise you on Home edition.
Waste of time.
The hardware is the most important thing.
93 or 95 premium... Not important.
The customer does not need to know the inner workings of the different editions of octane because its all a money making fuss just like Windows 10 editions.
Ultimately there's no performance difference. Back to the topic, part of the problem is no one even knows what the difference is.. (baring Windows 10 S.)
Its a classic case of disabling features already built in and probably taking up hard drive space.
Only you the owner can determine that.
Only interested on how the car feels in my hands.
Its not just my own that I'm having trouble with.
What happens when a visitor wants to connect to your network?
You stuff around trying to figure out the problem and you eventually give up.
I know from many years that sometimes connecting a Windows PC to a network is not just plugging in the Ethernet cable.
It should be that simple but it's not because of all the editions over the years.
there is no need for an article on how to upgrade to W10Pro4WS. What you will need, however, is a credit card. That's about it, really. .
really is what ought to automatically be part of Windows 10 (Pro)
as those features are just what the regular progress in technology gives us. Once technologies like Intel Optane become mainstream
any version/edition/what-not of Windows 10, that does not support stuff like this and others off the shelf
will pretty quickly look very outdated very quickly. Microsoft certainly has a specific talent to stand in their own way, it seems.
I mean, you have to be very talented spending 10 billion USD on a mobile effort without a leaving noticable traces in the market. The same kind of "talented thinking" informs decisions like spinning off
yet another version/edition/what-not called "Windows 10 Pro for Workstation". Nice try. .
Other OSes and File Systems are running circles around NTFS. ReFS reserved for "W10 Pro for Workstations" ?
You got to be kidding! Persistent memory
Ah well, technologies like Intel Optane and others will become mainstream.
Including mobile phones with Android and iOS, that is.
Count on Mac OS and Linux/FreeBSD as well. Reserved for "Windows 10 Pro for Workstations" ? You got to be kidding! Expanded hardware support There is something like an "expanded hardware support" ?
Off-the-shelf Windows 10 Pro does not fully utilize x86 hardware I buy off the web? Why the hell should I buy an operating system from Microsoft
- a company, that seems to deliberately and unpredictably change their various marketing spiels
to their very liking but not necessarily to that of their customers,
every other calendar year at their full discretion? You know what:
"Get lost!" .
