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