    THREAD REVIVAL! Also, how fast do those SSD's boost your system? It looks like they double the score of your PC.
    I guess my question is, I boot up now in about 10 seconds, how fast can a good SSD push that?

    If your PC boots from off to ready in 10 seconds with a hard disk, you have successfully defied the laws of physics, and I would like to touch your shoes--or be in your presence, or anything, really, as you will soon be terribly famous.

    Just for grins, I ran this on the FIL's computer over LogMeIn. Even remotely, it got 2202.

    I'll try it again tonight when I'm actually there and get a REAL score.

    I boot in 23 seconds (that's starting at when I press power until I see the Windows 7 login screen). At roughly the 9 second mark my uefi is done doing whatever it does and the os actually starts booting.

    I don't buy SSDs for boot time. I buy them because they are silent, they make "heavy" web browsing much faster, and application loading much more tolerable. They are also nice for frequent debugging build times.

    If you want to boot in 10 seconds or less you need to run msdos or some super lightweight linux distro I imagine. I'm trying to think of something I could boot in to in 1 second considering it takes me 9 to get out of the system boot and in to the os boot.

    Personally, I don't start counting until after the BIOS hands off to the OS. When my system was fresh, that was about 16 seconds. Now it's closer to 25.

    I was counting from the changeover from bios to OS, as nothing before the changeover would be affected by changing disks to SSD (Probably).

    System boot is helped out considerably for me by using a biostar p67 board, which has no UEFI.

    Well, very roughly mine takes 14(+/-2) seconds on an SSD taking advantage of sata3. So I guess in your case ssd will not help boot times. Or it could also be I don't know what I am doing and my ssd is not configured right and I am booting way slower than I should be.
    .. Perhaps if you applied your secret sauce to an SSD it would uber boot.:crazy:

    maybe a better clock should be my next investment...in all seriousness i wasn't trying to brag i was just curious.

    Still, I load nearly no drivers into windows (i've removed most of the unused ones from boot) and I have win7 forced into using 4 cores to start up.
    (and if you're annoyed by your UEFI bios you can swap it over to a phoenix one, some of which post in 2 seconds)

    Interesting. I'll have to give the multicore boot a try this evening.

    Testing for a before and after upgrade.

    Before:

    Out of curiosity, I benchmarked the 2010 MacBook Pro 15" that I use for everything. It's kind of sad:

    1791 PCMarks with NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M(1x) and Intel Core i7-620M Processor

    And, so, I'm thinking about what I can do to get a gaming PC working from the couch.

    Today Futuremark updated PCMark 7 and PCMark Vantage to be compatible with Windows 8.

    The new scores aren't directly comparable to the previous versions either.
