· boots as fast as most console/appliance (less then three seconds)
· very low commit charge
· record setting software, game, and soft system i/o benchmarks (RegBench et al.)
· hardware benchmarks asymptotic with the ideal
· no event log errors or stability issues, ever
It never ceases to amaze me that while individual system tweaks may only turn marginal performance improvements, sometimes inside the margin of error, or below the threshold of measurement; when combined can turn a performance increase worth a substantial cost in euros/dollars if the same where to be purchased as an equivalent performing hardware upgrade.
