Been out of the loop, but I'm aware of the M.2 standards, but was wondering why OWC discontinued the PCIe SSD drives, which is faster than the SSD 2.5 drives, and they still offer this slower SSD's ?

I'd guess low sales. Only a relatively short range of Macs had non-SATA, non-soldered SSDs (the PCIe drives you refer to).

Of those still in use, take into account the % of owners likely to actually upgrade the SSD if they haven't already, combined with the relative obscurity of the part, and you've got a recipe for very low profit margins on a part that has very low sales volume.
