Two caveats before I ask this:
1. I'm a Windows guy and I have no real attraction to macOS in general.
2. I hope this question doesn't start a platform argument (please).
See #1: I've had occasion to be using a Mac Mini with an SSD drive and that thing boots to the desktop from being "cold", i.e., literally shut down and powered off, not sleeping, in about 10 seconds. It's kind of freaking me out as my Windows computers don't boot anywhere near as fast as that and my Windows cold boot times never bothered me until now.
Is that the SSD drive or is that a combination of both macOS and the SSD?
Thanks in advance to the resident computer gurus.
I dual boot on the same system between latest windows and Mojave 10.14.6. Boot times are about the same. It also depends on what’s installed. Startup time will change a lot with usage (on both). SSD makes a world of difference. I would exchange a regular HD with a SSD asap.
Intel Core i7
Memory: 32 GB
Radeon RX Vega 64
OS X 10.14.5
Apollo X6 Thunderbolt
Studio One latest version
I have a SSD on my Win 7 setup and it boots real quick. But this machine is also offline so I have no extra programs booting up that are not required and this speeds things up as well.

Not being that technical, there may be faster SSDs available these days?

Depends on what the interface is. I think the current speed record for an SSD drive is on pcie version 4.0. That will change as soon as pcie version 5 comes out.
M2 NVMe = Amazing boot speeds, but also there's settings in your bios that could be preventing a fast boot.
A typical SSD can boot fast with fast boot settings in your bios, providing your bios supports that. I have a gigabyte mobo,and fast boot with a regular ssd is pretty quick.
