Lenovo Enhanced Experience goes round 2 - with Rapiddrive Technology!

Do you dream of a computer that is booting rapidly fast?

 

The PC IdeaCentre B520, at the left hand of these two guys, is booting in just 8,84 sec!

 

A nice to have, isn´t it?

OUPS ! I didn't see the comma is not in the right place Smiley Wink

 

When do you think we'll have a computer so fast it could finish booting before we push the power button Smiley Happy

It seems like we put up a $10K cash challenge to see if someone will show up with one that can beat the fastest time...

 

Check it out!

The 2 ThinkPads booted in under 8s (E420s:7.35s and T420s:7.62s).

 

While these were just prototypes to show off EE2.0 technology.  The overwhelming response has caused us to accelerate ship plans.  Stay tuned!

Hi all,

just stumbled about a new blog post by John about the recipe of Lenovo´s EE2.0.

Maybe worth a look? :-)

Re: Lenovo Enhanced Experience goes round 2 - with Rapiddrive Technology!

perfguy,

 

a lot of forum members have been asking if it's possible to apply the EE tweaks to a clean installation on lenovo systems.   so, is this possible or does it require people use a factory EE recovery image?

Re: Lenovo Enhanced Experience goes round 2 - with Rapiddrive Technology!

To get 100% of the optimizations you need to use (or start with) the Lenovo preload. However, the majority of the work goes into tuning the BIOS, drivers, and Lenovo TVT software for each system and these packages are available from lenovo.com and/or TVSU.

So I would say you get about 85% of the EE tweaks even on a clean install provided you use drivers and such from Lenovo. And the more proprietary pieces that you would be missing are compensated for by a lighter software stack really.

However, we are working on productizing the tweaks into a TVT (currently being called RapidBoot) that should make the extra improvements more portable - although it may only be supported on new Huron River systems.
