Microsoft may be changing its pricing for Windows 10 according to ZDNet sources.
With the release of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, Redmond is considering restructuring its pricing system based on processor class.
“Microsoft will begin licensing the Windows 10 Desktop operating system by processor family, and all PCs sold with Intel Xeon workstation processors will be affected by this change," said ZDNet.
For processors with four cores or less, the increase will be about $70 per licensed machine.
For Xeon rigs with more than four cores, the jump will be around $230 per system.
Similar pricing was mentioned in an e-mail from Dell to a customer back in September.
