Just did a fresh install of Windows 8.1, clocked my PC at 7.1 seconds to the desktop from the instant the Windows logo showed up. I expect this will grow as I install more software though.

It will. My PC used to take all of 3-5 seconds for the windows logo to the login screen. Takes quite a lot longer than that, now.
I haven't timed it, but a cold boot takes less time than an average console game loading screen.

Edit: Was bored, timed it. 10 seconds to display, 10 seconds through post, ~20 for the login screen to appear after that. Longer than I remember.

I've been messing around with this SSD I just bought, my first one ever. A Samsung 840 Evo 250GB, got it for about $100 after the Black Friday sale and a Newegg credit I had. Arch boots up in about 3 seconds, but I don't have a DE installed yet.

I haven't noticed a significant improvement in any game loading time aside from Rome 2, but that's because most games I play are online. But I have to say, it's so f***ing nice to have programs just pop up the second I click the icon. Visual Studio used to take an eternity to launch on my old system.

Hell is a place, like McDonalds. So if saying what the hell is bad, then saying what the McDonalds is bad too

13 seconds. From completely off to password log in. I need to make the SSD the first to boot and not the disk drive. The joy of a new installation.

Back when I first owned it, from completely off to desktop screen was 6.9 seconds. Now it's closer to 8.

Mine is still sub 8 seconds... On occasion when I restart (fast boot is disabled) it takes up to 12 seconds. Its so fast these days, I don't use the sleep function at all and just shut down.

I didnt time it. I am going by my brothers calculations. I also believe I have fast boot disabled.
