Four Kingston SSDNow E (Intel X25-E) SSDs in RAID 0 - Win 7

Boot Up and Shut Down Time

 

In our final test we thought it would be interesting to time just how long it takes for Windows 7 Ultimate x64 to boot up and also shut down.

 

We have even recorded a short video to show the incredible boot and shut down performance of all four Kingston X25-E SSD drives in RAID 0 with the Areca controller. Watch it below:

 

 

Damn cool, huh?

Above you get a look at the actual times in seconds for each SSD setup.

 

Keep in mind that the Areca controller is actually quite slow at initializing and we hope that they can work on the time that it takes during POST.

 

Once the POST is complete though, it's amazing to see how Windows 7 was able to load with these four SSDs in RAID 0. If you take a close look at the video we uploaded above, it takes about 8 - 9 seconds from the end of the POST screen to when the hour glass stops loading on the desktop.
