Windows 8.1 and 10 are performing about the same. The difference is so insignificant it can be chalked up to normal variability between runs.

Anvil Storage Utilities

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.1.0

Anvil's Storage Utilities is a storage benchmark designed to measure the storage performance of SSD's. The Standard Storage Benchmark performs a series of tests; you can run a full test or just the read or write test, or you can run a single test, i.e. 4k QD16.

Anvil's scoring gives a good indication of a drives overall performance.

Anvils is showing a slight difference between Windows 8.1 and 10 with RST 13.6. This difference is close enough that it can be considered variability between runs. Windows 10 with RST 14.5 is clearly being outperformed, mostly with 4K QD1 write.
