Intel 750 takes 64 seconds to boot.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My Intel 750 rocking the latest drivers (updated them before testing) takes anywhere between 51-64 seconds to get to the desktop from when i hit my power button (Tested 6 times). This surely is not normal? I remember my 4 year old SSD booting up in less than half this time.

Should i return this for the Samsung 950 Pro? (which is also cheaper mind you).

The Intel 750 SSD is primarily a data center SSD solution and is optimized as such. It's not at all an SSD that's meant for us mere mortals to be using in our desktop machines, it's an SSD meant to be shoved into a server in a data center and left alone.

 

Yes, you should return that Intel 750 and get the Samsung 950 Pro or even the cheaper 850 Pro. Unless you know for darn sure that you are going to be saturating a SATA 6 data channel, the Samsung 850 Pro and EVO will be more than most people will be needing for a long time to come.

 

For a vast majority of people, NVMe is a solution looking for a problem. Unless you're going to be pushing high bandwidth applications like real-time audio and video encoding, high performance database and/or file servers, and other various applications that will need extremely high performance data transfer speeds, SATA 6 will be more than enough for most people's needs for years to come.

This is irrelevant. I've got a SATA 3 SSD and I boot in maybe 20 seconds from a cold start.

Return the drive, you should be booting at least as fast as me, if not most certainly faster.

The Intel 750 has known booting issues. It should've been fixed though by the newest FW update.

My Intel 750 boots in about 20 seconds. That's UEFI and GPT partition.

Edit: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

PCI-e SSD's, on my experience (limited, in fact), are usually slower to boot than SATA SSD's, since they have to be initialized by the BIOS/UEFI during the pre-boot sequence. Don't know exactly how this initialization differs from a SATA SSD (maybe the SATA controller initializes in parallel to the other controllers during POST, never bothered to look), but this is something that I've learned from experience... Had a Revodrive x2 that took around 30-40 seconds to boot on a gigabyte GA-P67-UD7 motherboard (from memory), but on a X79 also from gigabyte it took more than 90 seconds... Incidental evidence, I know...

I agree, my Samsung 950 PRO SSD needs a minute to boot in windows with the specs in signature.

This is what I got with an Intel 750 vs Samsung NVMe SM951 vs a Samsung 850 Pro: http://www.thessdreview.com/our-reviews/intel-750-pcie-ssd-review-400gb/5/

 

Of course this was before the firmware updated that is supposed to speed up the Intel's boot time. After the update boot speed for the Intel should be about 2x faster from what I read. I haven't had time to test it myself yet.
