Why is the Virtio network performance in Windows lower than when using Linux?

Applied Models:

Answer:

This is a known issue where the current Virtio drivers for Windows does not support native performance compared with Linux distributions. This issue is not apparent in Gigabit connectivity, but if used in a 10Gbs/40Gbs environment the performance degradation will be noticeable.

Once updated Windows Virtio drivers are released that resolve this issue, QNAP will immediately apply them to Virtualization Station.
