    Versions of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations?


    I recently learned of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations as version of Windows 10 geared toward very high-end workstation hardware.

    Then I happened to configure a Dell Precision 7820 Tower online, and I noticed that in the operating system section, it offers a choice of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations (4 Cores Plus) and Windows 10 Pro for Workstations (up to 4 Cores). And there is a price difference between the two of $104.82.

    I found a couple of things interesting about this, which raised some questions in my mind.

    1) Most importantly, are there really different versions of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, one for systems with up to 4 cores, and one for systems with more than 4 cores? I don't find any mention of this on Microsoft's website, nor anywhere else really. And I find it somewhat surprising that there would even be a version of this high-end OS for workstations designed to only accommodate systems with 4 cores or less.

    2) There is no option to configure these systems with ordinary Windows 10 Pro, although I believe there is no reason it wouldn't work. There are options for several Linux distributions. And in the "Help Me Choose" link, it states, "Windows 10 Pro for Workstation is an operating system edition required by Microsoft for Windows Pro systems with Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron processors." Although as far as I know ordinary Windows 10 Pro will work with Xeon and Opteron processors.

    Here for reference is a link to the Dell page I was looking at.

    Microsoft to Introduce Windows 10 Pro for Workstation PCs

    Microsoft is seemingly going to introduce another version of their Windows 10 operating system. After introducing Windows 10 S earlier in the year, followed by the "Chinafinitive" Windows 10 China Government Edition, the company is seemingly responding to specific market demands of professionals and enterprises. The new Windows 10 Pro for Workstation PCs (which was first leaked by Microsoft itself through an erroneous upload to the Insider Program) will apparently come in two variants, a standard variant, and the N variant, which is built to comply with EU regulations.

    The new Windows 10 Pro for Workstation PCs will introduce ReFS, the successor to the tried and true NTFS file system. The new ReFS is designed for fault-tolerance and is optimized for handling large data volume, including auto-correcting capabilities and backwards-compatibility with NTFS. Additionally, Microsoft is baking in SMB Direct protocol file sharing in Windows 10 Pro for Workstation which allows for high throughput, low latency and low CPU utilization when accessing network shares. It will also introduce support for systems with up to four CPUs (up from Windows 10 and Windows 10 Pro dual CPU limit) and 6 TB of RAM.

    how to install and download the new windows 10 pro workstation


    You can't select Windows Pro Workstation on a clean install, its not listed as an install option. Not unless things have changed since I downloaded the Media Creation Tool ISO on the 17th.
    And as far as I know Pro Keys won't work for Pro Workstation. If they would, Microsoft wouldn't have given me new Pro Workstation keys. I have a two separate lists of keys for Pro and Pro Workstation.
    I did option one in the tutorial listed above, Upgrade Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations
