Live 12 Beta: 5 seconds
I updated from 4960X/Win 7 with SATA SSD. Live 10 took around 7-8 seconds to start on it. No M.2 ports, did not want to upgrade it either.

That Live 12 speed looks fab compared to 11 :!:

I also like that Max is started as part of the splash screen now... I used to hate the fact that Live 11 would be 'ready' but then you can't do things and down in the corner is the sneaky 'starting max'.

Overall a lot of nice quality of life improvements.

Does it even run on 64-bit?

Live 12 loads super quick but it takes about 100yrs to scan for plugins.

Its now 64 bit - VST3 - Clap compliant - currently free while in beta - easily the fastest loading DAW to use as a scratchpad. Development is slow......
