Sage has produced a coreboot® distribution that will start booting an in 707 milliseconds on the Atom E3800 System on a Chip (), said Sage Engineer Martin Roth. Sage has already authored firmware boots of 250 milliseconds to a kernel on earlier-generation AMD chips and less than two seconds to a full Linux operating system boot on Intel-based laptops.

The SageBIOS™ programming by Sage, which designs open source firmware solutions and products, was initially a co-development with Intel as part of the Fast Boot solution for time-critical applications.
