Default Significant difference in load time between cheap and high-end SSDs?

I'm beginning to plan out a new build and I was just curious on the real-world differences between my 2012 SSDs and a modern high-end m.2 SSD.

People with M.2 drives containing libraries, is there a tangible benefit to using M.2 over a SATA SSD when loading/streaming samples? Is it worth investing in enough M.2 storage for some libraries or should I stick with SATA and call it a day?

What about the difference between older SSDs (Crucial M4 and such) to the current-gen SATA SSDs like the 850 Evo? Is there something tangible here when it comes to load times or streaming?

Intel i7 3930k
M-Audio FastTrack C600
Samples on SSDs

FL Studio 64-bit / Cubase 8.5 Pro
Windows 10 Professional
HW Orchestra Diamond, EWQLSO Platinum, MoR, Colossus, Solo Violin, variety of 3rd-party libraries
