Are you sure this slow boot times wasn't with TRIM enabled via the terminal command, and that now on the new drive you have no TRIM enabled?
I have a Sandisk 960GB SSD and w/o trim HS would boot in less than a minute, but drive performance would degrade wildly after 2 or 3 power cycles (I copy and delete several big files every boot up, so I guess this might make more of an impact on performance when not having TRIM)
I have a 970evo (500GB one) arriving today and hope it keeps its performance without TRIM being forced, I´ve read several posts that indicate people doing ok without it.
I never had TRIM enabled via neither Clover patch nor terminal command, but since it's an NVMe SSD, TRIM is enabled by default and can not be turned off.
With my old 950PRO, the verbose log will show "failed to finish all transactions in sync()! (err 16)" and then stuck there for like a minute when booting. (exactly the same issue as this thread posts https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/long-boot-times-in-high-sierra-2-min.241709/ )
