Final Thoughts

Microsoft's newest OS is polished and we are really enjoying it so far. Most of all, we are happy to report that Windows 10 storage performance is very good. As far as SATA is concerned, we are comfortable in saying Windows 10 delivers performance that is equivalent to Windows 8.1. TweakTown will be utilizing Windows 10 for consumer storage testing moving forward. Overall, we prefer RST 13.6 to RST 14.5 and that is the driver we will be using at least for now, till a better one comes along.

Looking at PCIe NVMe, it is pretty clear that Windows 10 delivers superior performance in comparison to Windows 8.1. This is something that we are really glad to see, because we are moving into a new era of storage performance and SATA is not coming along with us. Today's SATA SSD's are becoming yesterday's HDD's in terms of enthusiast grade performance.

We hope that this performance analysis overview gave you some insight into what you can expect from Windows 10 with regard to SSD storage performance.
