Windows Server 2016 released several weeks ago, and for RDS and VDI, it’s got a lot of great new features going for it.

  • Direct Device Assignment (DDA) allows you to dedicate GPUs to virtual machines.
  • New codecs for clearer text.
  • Storage Spaces Direct lets you use local storage to create scalable, software defined solutions.

There’s lots more, of course, like improvements for hosting desktops in the cloud.

If this was the only data you looked at, you might expect the same performance for end users on any of these OS versions when running on the same underlying hardware. We know that doesn’t make sense though –Microsoft continues to cram more new features into each release, adding things like antivirus, UI that utilizes the GPU, Cortana and more.
