† Testing by AMD Performance labs as of 12/21/2017 on the following system. PC manufacturers may vary configurations yielding different results. Results may vary based on driver versions used. System Configs:  AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, GA-AX370 AORUS Gaming 5 motherboard, 16GB of dual-channel DDR3-3200,  Graphics driver 23.20.768.0 (17.40), and a Seagate Barracuda 500GB boot drive.  When Enmotus FuzeDrive was enabled, a Samsung 950 PRO NVMe drive was added to the drive pool. Without Enmotus FuzeDrive for Ryzen, the system took 28.611 seconds to complete a boot to Windows via Explorer; 21.421 seconds to initialize SMSS; 2.274 seconds to initialize the Windows Logon; 56.04 seconds to launch Adobe Premiere; 59.27 seconds to launch Adobe Photoshop; and 85.09 seconds to launch DOOM®. With Enmotus FuzeDrive for Ryzen enabled, the system took 10.534 seconds to complete a boot to Windows via Explorer (28.611/10.534=272%, or 172% faster); 3.926 seconds to initialize SMSS (21.421/3.926=546%, or 446% faster); 1.461 seconds to initialize the Windows Logon (2.274/1.461=156%, or 56% faster); 8.27 seconds to launch Adobe Premiere (56.04/8.27=678%, or 578% faster); 5.75 seconds to launch Adobe Photoshop (59.27/5.75=1031%, or 931% faster); and 38.77 seconds to launch DOOM (59.27/38.77=219%, or 119% faster).
