Boot Time performance testing - HDD vs. SSD
We just saw the SSD totally crush the notebook hard drive, but what about some real-world testing action?
Here we show the difference in boot time between the two. We measured using a stopwatch and timed from the point we turned the Hypersonic notebook on until the very first point each reached the Windows 7 desktop.
As you can see from the results above, this idea of upgrading to an SSD is turning out pretty good so far. The Intel X25-M SSD is a full thirty seconds quicker at booting up! Where the HDD had to sit and think just before displaying the desktop, the SSD breezed through it in an instant.
Unfortunately we ran out of time to compare video encoding performance, but as you can see from the numbers so far, it will totally break the HDD as we've seen so far already from the SSD.
