Well I know in my case as I dualboot linux and windows that nvme is a tad slower at boot than SATA, I had a SanDisk SSD PLUS Sata drive and it was at least 5 seconds faster than my Samsung 960 Evo NVME.

 

But in terms of file transfer and video rendering my samsung blows the Sandisk out of the water

The M.2 SSDs also tend to disable some SATA ports on the motherboard when in use.

Not all the time, that hangs on the chipset/motherboard and the like.

On my old motherboard yes this is true but not on the one in my current PC

M.2 SATA SSDs might disable a SATA port, but M.2 NVMe SSDs won't.

It depends where the PCIe channels are taken from. On my Gigabyte board, the PCIe x4 NVMe drive shuts down 2 of the 6 SATA ports.

Indeed, and again this all hangs on your chipset too.

I you got say a low end Intel or AMD motherboard yes, but if you have threadripper or something sky is the limit :D

I haven't seen that before, but I should have expected something weird like that since I was just looking at motherboards a month ago.
