Diskeeper says its HyperBoot app can cut the start-up time on Windows by more than half, licensed to Taiwanese PC maker Asustek Inc. A HyperBoot-enabled PC’ll average 100% CPU utilization during Windows loading process, said Ed Beckman. HyperBoot also physically remaps how Windows boot data’s stored to bring it closer together, so as to minimize access delays caused by hard drive spindle having to move from one part of the disk to another, Beckman said. And unlike some other boot-tweaking technologies, HyperBoot doesn’t just optimize PC once – it’ll continue to re-optimize PC as more apps’re installed, preventing typical slowdowns that occur with age. Current version works with XP, Windows 7 and solid-date drives (SSDs), too.
