What's a competitor to Apple on-board flash storage?

  1. I'm surprised to see high-end PC motherboards using SATA to connect storage.

    I've been doing some performance testing in Macs with flash-storage on-board cards(these use PCI-E instead of SATA) and I got these speeds:

    Macbook Pro Retina mid 2014: 702MBps (write) / 724MBps (read) using BlackMagic disk speed app with 5GB writes.

    Mac Pro 2013: 774 MBps write / 993 MBps read

    What non-Apple motherboard can compare to this for home use fast computing or gaming?
    Isn't storage the main bottleneck in a system?
