We can divide SSDs into two clear formats. The 2.5-inch format is based on the SATA interface and are the simplest drives on the market. Its performance is limited to an average speed of about 500 MB/s, much more than mechanical hard drives.
We have, on the other hand, the M.2 format based on the PCIe interface that greatly increases speeds. Those based on Gen 3 offer an average of 3,000 MB/s and Gen 4 range from 6,000 MB/s. At the moment, the Gen 5 models have not yet reached the market or are expensive and difficult to find.
