Real-world benchmarks included a batch of ~90,000 files and folders with capacities of 250MB, 500MB, 1000MB, and 120GB respectively to test file transfer performance. Windows 7 boot times were also monitored and timed starting from the OS load screen to Steam’s login window (the last program to load).
