That is the warm cache performance and is independent of whether it is
an SSD or spinning media.  SSDs only help for the cold cache
performance.  My cold cache load on an SSD is about 1.5 seconds.  My
cold cache load on spinning media is around 6-7 seconds.

timers that have collected up much lint in them over the years.  I
have been using Emacs since version 18.
