Re: Slow boot time X1 extreme

2018-12-22, 2:19 AM

I'm waiting 17-18sec for the fingerprint reader light to come on.

 

But time from placing finger until I see the desktop is another 13 or so seconds.

 

Shut down is 14-15 sec.

 

I've tried the basic stuff to increase performance I think.

 

Is this as good as it gets?

17 to 18sec bootup duration seems normal to me, my XPS15 running on an i7 8750H, 32gb ram and a 970pro ssd takes about 21 secs to cold boot vs my X1E running on 17 8850H, 32gb ram and a 970pro ssd takes 16 to 17 secs to boot.

How is performing your x1e vs the xps 15 I’m between those two. I like the aesthetics of the dell but the x1e have slightly better screen and better ports

 

i just undervolt and i was getting 1024 in cinebench and after undervolting -150 I’m getting 1215 so not bad, i think I’m going to repaste and see if the temps go down, when heavy task it gets to 98C

Performance only very small difference between the two, normal day to day usage you won't notice any significant differences, on the X1e i'm getting around 1213 on cb and XPS15 at 1201 both without any repasting or undevolting.

 

The XPS15 weighs heavier as compared to the X1e so if you plan to lug around the laptop all day definately go for the X1e.

That's horrid! I have an X1Y2 with and i5 , 16GB, and 970Pro that boots from cold (or restart) in 4 seconds from BIOS splash appearing to login screen. Touch finger and at desktop in < 1s. Using standard shutdown (Windows fast boot), it's about 2 seconds splash appearing to login screen.

**bleep**...any suggestions on how I can speed this up.....or should I just try another clean install of Windows?

 

Also, I'm noticing terrible lag in web browsers, most especially in chrome when opening a page in a new tab, my internet is 120Mbps so it's not that, it seems like it's the actual program. When a page opens in a new tab it takes a few seconds to load the actual tab and once the program gets the tab up and going the page loads up fairly quickly. But when this tab is loading my trackpad lags and I can't move it for a second or so....

 

Very disappointed, for a high end computer maxed out it should be much faster.

That’s not normal, try to do a cinebench to see how it does.

Also, I know nothing of undervolting and repasteing...I would never try and attempt to open this thing....should I take it to a computer tech shop and have them do it for me?? Can you please tell me what are the benefits of undervolting and repasteing? Is it just the temperature? Or are there performance gains to be had also?
