Intel Rapid Start

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I didn't know where to post this, but figured this would work since it uses a small partition on an SSD. I travel for work often and this feature would be amazing if I could get it working. Basically, when you put your computer to sleep (S4 or S5 I think?), it writes all the info to a small partition of the drive (2-8GB), so that you can power down, unplug your computer, and resume from sleep as if the computer was never powered off. It's also much faster than Microsoft's hibernation. Anyway, whenever I test it out, my computer turns on with a blank screen leaving me with no options other than to restart the computer. My question is, do you need IB to use this feature?

Thank You. Now I know my 2600k supports it, but I'm having problems with it.

Intel Rapid Start technology uses an SSD to hold system state information, enabling very rapid wake-up from a power-down state. Think of it as windows hibernate on steroids.
http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=900&Itemid=63&limit=1&limitstart=2

I could'nt find where it mentioned Intel Rapid Start works on 2500k or 2600k?
(I assume it is intended for ivy bridge cpu with SSD.)

Yes, I've actually seen a few articles that said it is only for IB. I guess I'll find out when my 3570k gets here tomorrow. Thanks again...

First I will admit that I have done very little "testing" on the Rapid Start option. I got the foundation of my new rig built up yesterday. I have a Intel X-25MG2 80G SSD that I am using for fast apps and I dedicated 16GB to the "hibernation partition" that is needed for Rapid Start.

I put my machine to sleep last night and when I woke it up today I seemed to take almost as long as a clean boot.

CAVEAT!!! THIS IS ONLY 1 DATA POINT!

I know that a clean boot takes ~32 secs right now as configured. (The Asus Z77 Sabertooth takes a while to post due to the features and BIOS) I will measure the time it takes to come out of the intel sleep. I will also be using a watt meter to see any difference in power draw between stock Windows sleep and intel rapid sleep.

Furthermore, even if it is same speed as a clean boot, you retain all your environment, and if I understand the technology correctly, it will survive a full power off!

I'll be curious about others results as well. Still wondering if this was worth 16GB of precious SSD space....

I thought it only writes a little bit to SSD but 16GiB per boot!
It's enough to reduce SSD life from 5 years to 3 years.

(40 GiB per day for 5 years on my Crucial M4 to
24 GiB per day for 5 years or
40 GiB per day for 3 years)

I am not sure that it writes out 16GB per boot. You just must have the part set to same size as RAM. Maybe it does as the only way to truly hibernate/sleep the system.
