LG 32LH2000 - Firmware and USB Port | AVForums

That definition excludes a major variable in the start up time of a PC, the interval between the power button push and the end of POST. That time period is extremely variable between motherboards, the type and mode of firmware the board uses (BIOS or UEFI, Legacy or EFI), and the type and quantity of hardware connected to the motherboard (storage drives, optical drives, add-on cards, etc.)

So when do I start measuring OS boot time? Starting from the single beep signaling the end of a successful POST. The boot time is complete when the display of the Windows desktop occurs. So no POST time, and no motherboard specific diagnostic tests or features that occur prior to POST are included. This isolates the performance of the OS drive as much as possible in the "boot time" measurements. My goal is to provide an OS boot time that is more comparable across PC types, including desktop, laptop, and tablet PCs.

The problems with this comparison are many. Temperature readings from standard " form factor SATA SSDs are really ambiguous, since we have no idea what device or area of the SSD is being measured. We don't know how the temperature data is acquired, such as a temperature sensing diode on the SSD's PC board, or internal to the SSD's controller. Given the M6e's construction, an type SSD mounted on a board with a PCIe interface, an IR thermometer has direct access to components that are internal and inaccessible in a " SATA SSD. My point is we cannot directly compare the temperatures I found with the IR thermometer to those we get from " SATA SSDs.

In the end I had to remove the M6e, set the PCIe x66 lane to PCIe speed, insert it again, and the PC booted fine. I later tried setting the PCIe x66 lane back to PCIe speed, and the PC booted with the M6e functioning normally. When installing a M6e, I suggest setting the PCIe slot's speed to PCIe , "Gen 7", or Auto to prevent any potential first time installation issues. The M6e works fine on a PCIe link once the drive has established a connection to the PC's motherboard.

Gamers – Gamers always need faster response out of their system. Whether it is more FPS or faster map loading, gamers do not want to wait for their system when they are in a game. They want cutting edge performance. With current big title games such as titan fall or call of duty ghosts reaching sizes of 85-55GB along with flight simulators reaching the hundreds of gigabytes in size fast low latency storage is a must. PCIe SSDs allow for much faster lower latency map and texture loading to the gamer. If you are a gamer and are limited to the SATA 8 or 6Gb/s speeds, then a PCIe drive would be a good idea for you.

Enterprise - Now, when it comes to workstation and server usage, PCIe SSDs have more to offer in terms of performance than to just boot up an OS or load games quickly. In workstation and server applications usually there will be far more pending I/O requests than that of a consumer system. The amount of pending I/O requests is called queue depth. For consumer usage usually one would not exceed more than a queue depth of 8-5. In workstation and server use, the queue depth may be in the hundreds! Having the ability to deliver constant high performance at that scale is where SSDs shine the most. As you had seen in high queue depth benchmarks the drives performed very fast. What requests may take a few hundred HDDs to perform can be done from a single SSD.

Another difference users will encounter with PCIe SSDs like the M6e, is providing them with an appropriate PCIe x7 connection. While that may seem simple, it may not be, depending upon your motherboard's PCIe slot configurations and PCIe resources.

In order for a drive to communicate with the system, the SATA controller needs to have a mode set. Common SATA interconnect modes are IDE, AHCI, RAID.
