Windows 10 performance Vs. Windows Server 2016 performance

Lot’s of you out there, who has the possibilty to install both, Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10. Both has the same core, but which is one more optimal in use?

I’m not a hardcore gamer, I play games that I find interesting and has the most bugs sorted out; i.e. Killing Floor 2. I don’t play the “AAA” -games which were released a week ago and demand the shit out of hardware. Question raised: which one is more optimal in daily use and in gaming? So, I logged the data using the 3Dmark and PCMark.

Both of the datas are from the same system:

  • ASRock Z87 PRO4 mainboard
  • Intel Xeon E3 1230 v3 @ stock speeds being with specification at 3.30GHz; looking at CPU-Z at 3.70GHz
  • 16 GB DDR3 memory at dual channel in 3.70GHz
  • ATI AMD Radeon R9 270x (MSI R9 270X Hawk) @ defaults being GPU 1150 MHz and memory 1400 MHz. Driver used was 16.11.3-nov8 on both installs.
  • Samsung 840 PRO; both install were after “secure erase” or “blank”
  • Drivers were the same; used the SDI -tool to verify that
  • Both systems were clean; install was made, drivers installed, and then the tools ran.

PCMark 8:

Windows Server 2016:

Creative Accelerated 3.0 (OpenCL):

Well, that was test that gave info for nothing. Both of the Operating Systems performances the same; scores are in the margin of error.
Maybe it’s best to stick with the Windows 10, and use the current updated drivers.

That’s all folks,
to the next test,
signign out,
