There is very little difference between the two OS's in this test. We will call this a tie.

Windows 10 destroys Windows 8.1 in this test. We tested several times to confirm this.

Again Windows 10 crushes Windows 8.1. Look at the difference in write latency. Write latency is much lower on Windows 10 than 8.1 and that really shows when you compare 4K QD1 write performance.

Windows 8.1 edges out Windows 10 in this test by the slightest of margins.

VERDICT: Overall, we feel comfortable saying that Microsoft's newest OS will deliver better performance with PCIe NVMe SSD's than Windows 8.1.
