UEFI to deliver almost instant-on PCs in 2011?

Posted on Friday, October 01 2010 @ 20:02:25 CEST by


TechEye reports the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) Forum has made new advances with its UEFI interface that could enable computers that boot in under a handful of seconds. Systems with the new UEFI interface could be available for sale sometime next year.
Currently it takes most between 30 seconds and several minutes to boot up their PC. Windows Vista was a particularly bad culprit of long boot times, while Windows 7 has built on this. Microsoft has promised that Windows 8 will deliver faster boot times, but the problem is not limited to the operating system alone; the Basic Input/Ouput System (BIOS) is also a contributing factor.

“At the moment it can be 25-30 seconds of boot time before you see the first bit of OS sign-on,” said Mark Doran, head of UEFI. “With UEFI we're getting it under a handful of seconds. We're not at instant-on yet but it is already a lot better than conventional BIOS can manage, and we're getting closer to that every day.”
