Windows® 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience for Think Enhanced Experience – How Did We Achieve Performance Gains • Background • Painstaking investigation of thousands of components to identify performance bottlenecks • No single area - many small impacts across entire system • Hardware Driver Components • Significant cumulative delays • Ex: wireless Driver from 5 second to 200 millisecond shutdown impact • BIOS Tuning • Hide devices temporarily so they load only after boot is finished • Windows 7 • Delay loading non-essential services and applications until after start-up • ThinkVantage Technologies • Optimized all elements and delay loading non-essential services until after start-up
