I have read How to create a blockchain snapshot for a hardfork? but it does not answer this question. I understand the bootstrap.dat file is basically a concatenation of the blk000x.dat files, but the snapshot is integrated into a wallet faster.

I am surprised this question is not already asked and answered here as there are several mentions about the use of a snapshot in various answers to other questions.
