What is Windows 10 Pro for Workstation? Why is different from Windows 10 Pro?

So, Today I requested a quotation for a new workstation for my office. Now I am confused by the price of Windows 10 Pro for workstation. My vendor has mentioned $326 as the price for Windows 10 Pro for workstation and I below Windows 10 Pro normal version just cost $176.

This is the first time I am hearing about Windows 10 Pro for workstation. Why this version is costlier than normal version of Windows 10 Pro and where are the difference between both version? and why would anyone buy this version wit this price tag?

My vendor claim I should by Workstation version for my newly purchasing workstation.

I will appreciate any information on this two version of Windows 10 Pro.

Thanks

You can choose Windows 10 Pro for Workstation if you are buying some high-ends computer otherwise I would suggest buying the normal version of Windows 10 Pro.
