    I think it might depend on the mobo and OS. On my Windows 8.1 SSD sandbox machine its pretty much under 10 seconds to login screen from power on. On my Windows 7 SSD gaming machine it takes considerable longer.

    "...provides nearly instantaneous boot times."

    Is this an example of journalistic embellishment or do they really believe their own BS?
