Nowadays performance gains from M.2 SSD raids (Raid 0)

I have looked up the previous conversations about RAIDs and performance in After Effects, but most people are still talking about SATA SSDs or even HDs RAIDs, what seems to be a little bit out dated. Newer mainboards like the AsrockTRX40 Creator support RAID 0, 1 & 10 configurations for the M.2 slots. Most recommendations tend to say, having the OS, the footage and the cache on seperate drives would give you the best performance. Right now, I am running two Crucial MP600 M.2 SSDs (1TB) as they are. One for the OS, project files and one for the disk cache. I have one more M.2 slot, where I will put another MP600 (1TB) in and I am thinking of putting them together in a RAID 0 configuration (what the Mainboard and BIOs supports). I know it is risky, because of drive failure and data loss, but I just care about the maximum performance. The whole system will be backuped through Cloud backup on active project and backup on NAS. Do you think this configuration will bring a performance gain in I/O heavy tasks in AE?

(I am working a lot with high LED resolutions and rendering to NotchLC videos, that tend to be over 20GB for a minute of content in e.g 6k.)

If you are reading and writing to SSDs, there is not going to be much of a performance gain by creating an SSD raid. Most of the render and preview time is caused by the CPU and the GPU making calculations on every pixel on every layer. If you are getting smooth playback from Premiere Pro and After Effects and your Media Player from your drives, you're not going to get much of a speed improvement by using a RAID because Read/Write is such a small portion of the process.
