Getting mixed speed results on different Operating Systems

I currently run windows 10 pro daily on an ssd, I have a gigabit internet connection, I've noticed on windows I can barely break 500mbps, the other day I plugged a hard drive in my computer with ubuntu on it and booted to that instead of my windows ssd, I ran the same 2 speedtest I usually run on the 2 different websites and low and behold I am hitting around 900mbps, I tested again monitoring pfsense firewall graphs in/out through the wan and lan and the numbers match up, on windows it shows I am barely breaking 500-600 on the graphs and on ubuntu it shows 900+, my windows computer is babied and I have no unnecessary programs/services running the background, I even tested in safe mode and it returns the same results, posting here hoping someone has an idea as to where I should look to next as at this point I am quite lost I used to see good throughput on the same Os but not anymore
so you use to see 900mbps on this windows machine. And now only half?
What build of windows 10 are you running? Did you install/update any sort of 3rd party firewall/security software on it - those can produce a significant hit to performance sometimes. Especially if not tuned or some crappy version..
For support of windows you prob have better luck on a windows support forum..

What does Windows get when you bypass pfSense?
