New Windows 10 Pro for Workstations Edition

This month, Microsoft provided details on the new Windows 10 Pro for Workstations Operating System, scheduled to be released later this year.  This operating system version is primarily intended for power users requiring server grade PC hardware. I could see us using this for CAD or engineering computers. 

Windows 10 Pro for Workstations will include four major features:

  1. Resilient File System (RdFS) will provide better protection against data corruption and be optimized for handling large amounts of data and auto-correcting.

  2. Support for non-volatile memory modules (NVDIMM-N) with persistent memory.  What this means is that read and write speeds will be super fast, and files will still be there even if a workstation is switched off.

  3. Faster file transfers between PCs and Servers with large datasets, enabled by high throughput, low latency and low CPU usage capability.

  4. Expanded hardware support to Server grade Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors with up to 4 physical CPUs and up to 6 TB of RAM.  Windows 10 Pro only supports 2 physical CPUs and up to 2 TB of RAM.

All good news for the power users out there. Read Microsoft’s blog announcement here:
