This is 4 1TB Samsung Evo Plus SSDs configured in RAID 0. The Sonnet M.2 4x4 PCIe card was used.
The SSDs were updated to the latest firmware from Samsung. Older firmware won't work with macOS.

Are the nvme drives treated as separate drives when you use the Sonnet PCIe card? As in are they identified as separate drives even though they are using the same PCIe lane?

They are treated as one drive to the OS. RAID drive systems are "generally" used to make a much larger, faster drive out of many small drives.
