The upcoming Fall Creators Update seems to hold a few surprises since Microsoft has just announced that a new Windows 10 Pro edition would arrive with it. Dubbed Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, Microsoft describes it as "a high-end edition of Windows 10 Pro, comes with unique support for server grade PC hardware and is designed to meet demanding needs of mission critical and compute intensive workloads."

Windows 10 Pro for Workstation is, according to Microsoft, created based on the feedback received from the members of the Windows Insider program. Its four key selling points are the following:

  • ReFS (Resilient file system - the name should say it all)
  • Persistent memory
  • Faster file sharing via SMB Direct, a feature that uses the capabilities of Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA)-enabled network adapters
  • Expanded hardware support (up to 4 CPUs and 6 TB RAM, including server grade Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron chips)

The Windows 10 Pro for Workstation edition will join a rather complicated lineup of products. The original Windows 10 family consisted of three embedded/IoT builds, next to Home, Pro, Mobile, Enterprise, Education, and Mobile Enterprise. In the meantime, Windows 10 S was added. At last, there are also two subscription versions of Windows 10 that go as Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
