In our earlier article we have reported that Microsoft is working on three new SKUs for Windows 10 which were accidentally leaked for users with the roll out of build version 16212 for PCs and Mobile.

Now a leaked documents reveal details of one of the SKUs, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. The new SKU is supposed to be what the previous article described as Windows 10 Pro for Advanced PCs.

Microsoft is however yet to decide on the final name for the new edition of Windows and there are possibilities that it might change at a future date.

Windows 10 Workstations could possibly have a all new replacement for the NTFS File system with other features to process large amount of data. With the Workstation Mode enabled, the company plans to optimise the OS by identifying typical compute and graphics workloads for peak performance.

Microsoft’s NTFS successor ReFS will be enabled in the new version to support fault tolerance, optimize large data volumes and auto correcting. Microsoft is also planning to include SMBDirect protocol for file sharing and high throughput, low CPU utilisation when accessing network shares.
