No, it's slower.
Answer #2 | 08/12 2016 02:24
Yes.

It may well be a little faster since it's connected directly to the Motherboard via tie PCIe connector rather than the SATA cables. However, the actual speed of the connection is only a number on paper since in the world of the user, he or she will never be able to see the difference in speed, or even be aware of it. If you're a purist then spend the substantial extra money on a PCIe solid state drive.

It's significantly faster. SATA tops out a 600 MB/S PCIe 3.0 x4 (what most PCI-E SSD's use) tops out a little under 4 GB/S.
