Ah, didn’t spot that - no, I think it’s just W10 but don’t know for sure.
Not sure about trying to create common projects, it’s a huge amount of work to really get like for like. You’d need to check single and multi core scores in a variety of different scenarios, and even then there will be differences between our rigs. Before I bought I checked out the DAW bench scores and Scan were good enough to do a few single core tests for me too. AFAIK my performance is exactly in line with this.
One of the big headlines that came out of all that testing for me is what a poor host Cubase is, even with ASIOguard2. You’d get double the mileage out of Reaper. VE Pro is similarly efficient.
EDIT - I was part of a thread on the sound board forum on testing DAWs which has a ton of useful info. You’d need to register to see it - https://thesoundboard.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2660
