HEY, THERE!
In the traditional SATA hard disk, the data will be read from the hard disk to the memory, and then the data will be extracted to the CPU for calculation. After calculation, the data will be fed back to the memory and finally written to the hard disk. With the PCI interface, the data is directly connected to the CPU through the bus, which saves the process of memory calling the hard disk, and the transmission efficiency and speed are doubled. In short, the car in the PCIe channel is like driving on the high speed, while the car in the SATA channel is like driving on the rugged mountain road. Obviously, the transmission speed of the PCIe SSD is much higher than that of the SATA SSD. So it’s easy to think that SATA-based storage is on its way out?

I'd say not yet haha. I don't even have a spare pcie x16 slot :/

Well some motherboards don't have them too and I believe they're more expensive as well If I'm not mistaken, and they're still plenty fast.

Dead ? No, not by long shot, too many SSDs on the market and port speed is not debilitating enough to restrict disk speed enough to matter in most cases. At worst, SATA SSDs will be restricted to data storage, eventually !.
NVME is making good strides, prices are going down so inevitably lends itself to OS/BOOT use and for storage critical applications but otherwise difference in speeds in "normal" use is not always apparent.

SATA isn't going anywhere for awhile. Even if everyone moved to using NVMe drives, as far as I know most motherboards only have one slot for them unless you get an expansion card. So for all the folks who use/need multiple drives they'll still be using sata. And those with RAID setups, it's much more cost effective to stick with sata drives

Not really, considering hard drives aren't even close to dying out and there's no point in trying to get those on PCIe when they can't even saturate 6Gbps SATA by themselves.

Also data from PCIe based storage still has to go into memory if it's being worked on. Data from PCIe based storage can't be manipulated directly.
