This year at the Flash Memory Summit big is in as Toshiba unveils an 85TB 2.5" SSH and suggested a 20TB M.2 drive is not far off.  SK Hynix will release a 64TB 2.5" SSD with a 1Tbit die size which analysts expect to offer somewhat improved reads and writes compared o their previous offerings.  The two companies will be using 96-layer QLC 3D NAND in these drives and The Register expects we will see them use an NVMe interface as opposed to SATA.  Check out the story for more detail on these drives as well as what Intel is working on.

"The Flash Memory Summit saw two landmark capacity announcements centred on 96-layer QLC (4bits/cell) flash that seemingly herald a coming virtual abolition of workstation and server read-intensive flash capacity constraints."

Does it really cost much more to make a drive nvme/pcie instead of sata/achi?

You would need a u.2 connector, an m.2 adapter, or some kind of pci express adapter for 2.5 inch drives. That probably cost a little bit more, but not much. The pci express controller chip is probably a bit more expensive also. The best way to go to me seems like a pci express adapter card with m.2 devices. The adapter cards shouldn't be as expensive as they are now. They are completely passive as far as I know.

Is it me or are the ads on this page starting that annoying thing where they play with the scroll functionality outside of the user's mouse control to snap the page to where the ad is loading. Google's ads are really making it hard to do any reading without losing ones place due to those pushed out ad scripts jerking the page around beyond the users control.

ExtremeTech is really bad for that sort of thing and Ars Technica and Phronoix are really eating more than their fair share of CPU/Processor Cycles lately even after their pages load. Phoronix even has an annoying ad that floats over the forum posts section and it can not be closed, WTF is up with that. It's really hard to read with that crap going on and ad blockers mean lost revenues for sure but please sitck with the single image ads that do not come with ad scripts that turn folks browsers into little ad spaffing servers.
