Windows 7 Lenovo Enhanced Experience

How 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

    • Thinkpad X300, X60/61, R60/61, T60/61

  • Best practices for Customer Win7 Enhanced Experience (EE) image:
    • Lenovo creates your image (EE Preload or ITC service)
    • Customer starts with Lenovo EE Preload (uninstall, add additional)
    • Lenovo optimizes a customer-created image (ITC service)
    • Customer-created image only, then compiles most EE pieces as download from web
