I upgrade my laptop system to SilkTest 5.5 Service Pack 1. One of the main reasons was the claim that they improved the speed of the object recognition.

Curious about this, I ran a few tests using a demo script I have for the sales department.

Using SilkTest 5.5 with Hot Fix 3, the demo was fairly constant at around 7 minutes. With SilkTest 5.5 Service Pack 1 installed, the same demo was fairly constant around 4 minutes, 50 seconds. This is a 31% improvement in execution time!

This was just a quick test to see if the claim had any truth to it. The results are what I found, your application my respond diffrently.
