I still have not received any response from either Intel or Samsung UK (Email to the CEO) in response to my question why does it take 12-13 seconds for my new Samsung Galaxy Pro 2 360 13 inch with 12th Gen i7-1260p to boot when my six month old Samsung Galaxy pro 360 i5 11th Gen boots in 6 seconds. Windows 11 pro in both machines.
The Laptops have identical set-ups and are running the same number of apps (Most Samsung apps removed) and all normal other actions taken to reduce boot load (ie start ups minimised, fast boot in on, background running apps switched off, visualisation switched off, Edge switched off at Windows login in GP edit, etc) Both are fully updated.
Surely someone in Intel or Samsung must have an answer.
Here are some of my thoughts -
1. The additional layers of security on Intel Evo i7 12th Gen result in extra checks at bios boot.
2. All the Intel add on apps (Intel connectivity, IO, Components, etc, etc, slow down the processor.
3. Do Microsoft, Intel and Samsung controllers all interact ?. For example three systems trying to make my WiFi connection better.
4. Also I have asked the question - Is Bios update PO7VAB the latest update for the EVO 12th Gen i7-1260P and is there a Intel update site (Other than the normal Graphics drivers site) but received no replies.
Intel or Samsung, please advise

On 8th May 2022 an Intel advisor replied -
These are all questions for Samsung to answer. It is their laptop design and, most importantly, their BIOS implementation.
Unfortunately the Intel Evo i7 1260p 12th Gen with 16 GB ram and 512 GB ssd should out perform the Intel EVO i5 11th Gen 1130G7 with 8GB Ram and 256 ssd but it does not.
A more detailed comparison also confirms that the i7 1260p has more of everything.
Ram specs are even better.
I still await an explanation from Samsung.
