I see the same issue, although I'm still on my 950 Pro as my boot drive. My last boot time shows 15 seconds and then 8 seconds from the time the Windows logo appears to the login screen appearing. I've never looked at last boot time on my previous 840 Pro, but I have timed it from cold boot at around 8 to 10 seconds from the time I tapped the power button to typing my password at the Windows login screen. So, I agree with others that it's nvme causing the bios delay or likely the mobo patchwork to enable nvme support.

I don't reboot a whole lot unless I'm playing with fan profiles and saving and loading bios configs, but during those times rebooting becomes painful. I guess my solution is to throw in an 850 Pro as a boot disk and use the 950 as storage and for running my VMs.

I think this is only an issue on certain motherboards. My Z97 boots from bios to desktop in <10sec on a 950 pro, but Z97 and Z170 both have native NVMe/M.2 support. On X99 motherboards I believe it was up to the motherboard manufacturer to offer NVMe support and to implement it properly.

So these higher end Z170 motherboards like Hero Alpha, Z170 Deluxe etc. should not have any problems and slow boot times?

My Z170 Fatal1ty gaming pro, from switch on to desktop is 20.5 secs with fast boot enabled. It still takes the bios a while to get to the 950 as the code on the boot screen shows code A0 which is PCie/Sata. Will have to try my 850 pro as the boot drive and see if there is any difference.

Hmm, odd. I thought this was mostly a X99 issue since chipsets released after that came with native M.2/NVMe support built-in to the Intel PCH. I guess it's just UEFI/BIOS dependent afterall on every platform. If no bios options can fix this, the board manufacturers need to. Asus seems to have a working bios though since mine boots fast but I'm not sure about other Asus models.

Also I just recently got a Asus HYPER M.2 X4 MINI CARD off a friend to use in my Z97's 4x slot since my M.2 slot is limited to 2x, and my boot times haven't changed to slowmode. (the Hyper M.2 card is just a rebranded M.2 to PCIe adapter card like any you'd find on eBay or Amazon, I don't think there's anything special except it's black instead of green like most).

Anyways, on an semi-off-topic note, I'm now troubleshooting windows 10 slow boot issues now lol. fiddled with something too much and it says "Preparing Windows" for about 20-30 seconds before the desktop shows, but it used to show desktop instantly. Issue is entirely unrelated to the 950 pro or the new adapter card, UEFI BIOS still boots in about 8sec. I just haven't had time to run a boot trace yet.

From my research, the x99 and Z97/Z170 all had nvme support ADDED in 2015. No mobo that I can find had native support. They were all patched via a BIOS update. From what I am reading, some boards may boot nvme faster, but their nvme support is no more native than any other.

Does anyone know if Apple has or is adopting the M2 technology? It is incredible the read and write speeds capability it has. At this time I am using the SSD PNY 1311 drive and I get 530 write 575 read speeds and cannot fathom the speeds the M2 can obtain. Tho I am happy with the speed over the HHD speeds, I went from 52sec boot up to 13sec and that really blew my mind and with the M2 it would boot up in about; what 3-4 sec??

Are you using Windows 10? For some reason when running windows 10 when you get to the log in screen just before the desktop it just sits there for like 20 seconds. That really annoyed me. Because Windows 8 never did that. So after some research I found here in the OS section you can my a small reg edit file to get rid of that delay when booting into windows 10 using the 950 pro. My time from power on to desktop is like 5 seconds. Its insanely fast. If I find that thread I'll post it here.....

EDIT: Found it....

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DelayedDesktopSwitchTimeout

Create a new dWord with that name if you need to. The value is in seconds, with a default of 30. I like 0 – 5 seconds. Any change will take effect next time you sign in.

I don't have that reg entry on my Windows 10 Build 10586.420

Anyone with Asus Hero Alpha or Formula Z170 motherboards using 950 Pro ? I'm a bit worried about those temps that will degrade performance of 950 Pro to be honest. If I buy one it will be used as OS and essential programs drive.
