If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

It'd definitely be a boon to OCC reviews if we had actually had real load times in the reviews. Synthetic benchmarks only go so far...

EDIT: I assume the Intel drive is a 50 nm X-25M but it's not really stated anywhere. Is that correct?

It is an ES drive but was used for comparison. By load time you are looking for post to login or post to the OS screen cutting out the password login?

Ah. Is it akin to the X-25M then?

By load times I mean general usage load times like booting, loading up Photoshop, game level load times, that sort of thing. People can see big numbers and think "ooh fast!" but if you can show them their load times cutting in half it'll make for a much more real-world review.

The original quote says 644bit, I believe he meant it should read 64-bit.

EDIT: Looks like it was fixed.
