# Save slower than raw computation

I have a computation which takes several minutes to run. Using cell magic %%time I get the following timing:

CPU times: user 6min 51s, sys: 29.8 s, total: 7min 21s
Wall time: 7min 28s


I thought it would be nice to not have to recompute the output of the computation (an algebra I) every time I wanted to use it so I saved using:

save(I,'os7_6x1_c',compress=True)


Then when I go to load it, it takes longer to load than to compute:

%%time

CPU times: user 8min 40s, sys: 35 s, total: 9min 15s
