SSD Roundup August 2009

Windows Boot Times

In past reviews we have seen that even the slower first generation SSDs such as those based on JMicron’s 602A controller were able to outperform a Raptor in the Windows Boot Time test, the results below show how the newer drives compare. The results were obtained on a fully configured Windows 7 64bit installation which included start-up programs such as anti-virus and MSN. The recorded time was the gap between the Windows loading bar appearing and the pointer becoming available on the desktop.

In this test the varied specifications of each setup translate into some varied results. Despite being the slowest SSD in terms of boot time the Crucial drive still comes close to cutting the Raptor boot time in half. The enhanced specifications of the Vertex Turbo knock a further second off the boot time which brings the OCZ drive a little closer to the impressive Corsair P128. Unsurprisingly the high speeds of the RAID 0 setup creates the fastest boot time, a very short 10 seconds.
