If you go by IBM servers then decrease in speed would be correct; they take a lifetime to boot. I've made the joke that my son will inherit the job of performing the os install once the server boots. UEFI is a pita from my limited experience and gains nothing.
My V880 takes about 4-10 minutes to get to the firmware prompt, depending on if diagnostic boot is set.
lol, you don't want to test ServeRAID configuration then (i've got 5150 on all 3 servers). damn thing runs configuration in some kind of web browser inside UEFI. click response can get up to 5 seconds and redraw is somewhere in range of first VGA cards. really... damn... slow...
all in all, i love my X series and don't mind UEFI long booting on servers. configuring cards inside UEFI setup instead of waiting to press right key combination during boot is kinda nice feature.
they could definitely use some kind of caching and some kind of accelerated graphical interface.
edit... just watched video and graphic speed is way better there than on IBM UEFI Edited 2010-11-08 20:28 UTC
