You're mixing different level of technology there. M.2 is a form factor that can connect SATA and PCI-E devices. All the SATA devices use the AHCI protocol and the PCI-E devices can use either AHCI or NVMe.

2.5" SSDs also use SATA signalling and the AHCI protocol.

There's a wide variety of devices operating at different speeds for all combinations.

Assuming you're talking about a drive such as an SM961 then you won't see any performance difference from the OS and the vast majority of apps.

Hello

Thank you for getting back to me.

So if i purchased a drive like the sm961 putting my videos and photos on their which i want to edit would not make any difference compared to a ssd such as the mx300?

I'm not entirely sure about the video editing. Some high end video editing setups use some pretty fast disks. If you are doing high end stuff then you'd have to ask in a specialist forum.

Generally though it's only stuff like database servers and other things that are almost all disk use that benefit.

There will be a difference just not very noticeable watch some reviews as certain drives deal with large files better than others
