I have ryzen 3600x and gtx 1080 with 16gb 3200mhz ram. I just ran the latest PC Mark 10 build and notice my overall score was 5997, whereas the highest score for a rig with the same components was 6777.

Delving deeper into the individual scores breakdown I identified my problem appears to be the "App start up score" which is only 6828 whereas the highest scoring rig was 16900.

Why is my App start up score so far behind?
 
An SSD was my first thought too. If you do already have an SSD you might have some other software that is messing things up or you might need to install chipset or SSD drivers and utilities. It is hard to say, even if you have an SSD there could be a problem with it or it could be running too hot or too cold (yes, too cold is a thing with SSDs).
