Pheonix BIOS pormises POST times of about one Second

After that it is up to you and your OS

One major complaint with modern computers is the time it takes to get them to a working state. Even the fastest system takes time to boot up and get all the devices in the system checked and working.

 

Pheonix is working on a BIOS that can speed up the POST time by a considerable marign. How fast? Well according to some of the reports it can actually cut the POST (Power on Self Test) down to one second.

 

That means that if you combine Windows 7 and its speed up boot time you could be ready and working in around 10-20 seconds. This is extremely fast and something to be seen in action.

 

What is it I keep saying? The future of computing is looking awfully bright.
