This is a quick dirty example of what I think proves Edge uses different cipher suites than OS offers.

Quick recap.

To establish a TLS channel, the very first thing that needs to happen is the SSL/TLS handshake. During this process, both client and server agree on supported cipher suites to use, the server authenticates itself to the client among other things. In Windows OS we have the Secure Channel, SCHANNEL, that implements SSL/TLS standard and is responsible for negotiating the handshake between the client and the server.

So, SCHANNEL is the Windows provider that facilitates the use of SSL/TLS communications.
