    I would like to buy an SSD for my MacBook Pro
    Some SSD (like Crucial MX200) support hardware AES-256, IEEE-1667... hardware encryption
    Some are not (example: SanDisk Extreme Pro)

    Is the extra hardware encrypt support can help File Vault 2?

    No benefit at all. OS X does not support hardware encryption like that.
