BootRacer - System Boot Time
Version and / or Patch Used: 4.0
Developer Homepage: Greatis
Product Homepage: BootRacer
Rather impressive, the Scorpio Blue continued to rock when we introduced a full install of Windows 8 x64 onto the drive, subsequently installing BootRacer and giving it a go.
Above we see the Scorpio Blue rolling over the competition in our charts. Keeping up again with the 7K1000, the Scorpio Blue managed a 48 second boot time.
Resume from S4 Hibernation
Hibernation or S4 is part of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface specification. In our custom "Resume from S4" testing, we allow the drive to enter hibernation for a period of ten minutes, from there we use our trusted stopwatch and time how long it take for the drive to resume to working desktop environment.
To meet Gen. 2 Ultrabook Certifications a drive must resume within seven seconds.
The first of our drives that would be considered for Ultrabook, the Scorpio Blue resumed from hibernation in just 6.8 seconds.
