This AMD powered box is a speed demon …
I just installed a full Microsoft Office 2003 installation, from start to finish, under 2 minutes!
Launch Word for the first time ever, just over 1 second.
Launch Excel for the first time ever, under 1 second.
I wish there was a way to easily determine what is the biggest factor in the performance gain for a particular operation, CPU speed, memory, disk speed, caching … oh well, whatever the reason, I’m having fun! 🙂
