How long does your system take to boot? Should be 30 seconds at the longest (mine takes about 25 seconds and I only have i5 with 8GB ram). It wouldn't hurt to check in your bios/UEFI and see. With a decent high end system you would still get decent speeds but they could be that bit better when you have it properly set.
If you're on Windows 10, you can follow this tutorial if it isn't already setup. I know for Windows 7 you had to install a driver for AHCI if it wasn't already installed when you did the original install.
5yr old machine and mine boots in 14 seconds
j/k... I have no clue but it's faster than 30.
