Windows 7: New Phoenix Bios Loads 7 in 10 seconds

New Phoenix Bios Loads 7 in 10 seconds

Windows 7 boot in 10 seconds
New BIOS technology start your PC in under one second and boot Windows 7 before you can manage to count to 10 See here how it works.:

There is a prospect of getting a great deal of speed on Windows 7 with a new BIOS.
How long does it take just to get life in Windows 7? What say you to be able to cold boot your laptop in just 10 seconds? It is possible with a newly designed BIOS from Phoenix.

BIOS was showcased at Intel Developer Forum trade fair that has just underway in San Francisco.

Phoenix calls it "Instant Boot BIOS," and it works by starting all units up at the same time.

It takes less than one second and compared with traditional BIOS, which starts a single unit of time.

This means that most often 10 seconds or longer, before Windows even begins to load.

Phoenix marched BIOS on a Lenovo T400S-portable, and it started up Windows 7 less than 10 seconds.

Now it must be said that the machine also had an SSD disk and booted a completely clean Windows without a lot of installed software.

Although our review has shown that Windows 7 is fast, it's still impressive with the lightning fast start, and hopefully throw the PC manufacturers, the new technology in future laptops.

BIOS will also be a hit when you use the hibernate feature in Windows 7 for here, you start basically even with a cold start before all the saved data is moved from disk to system memory.

Check out this YouTube video where Phoenix BIOS Instant demonstrated:

Of course he has all the advanced graphics turned off as you can see in the movie, which probably helps a little.

I wonder how fast I'd load if I stripped Win7 to the bare shell.

Heh maybe hold it down before turning on machine. I wish desktop BIOSes worked that way, sometimes they are so fast it's hard to hit the small 1-2 second time window as it is :)
