Plextor launches M6S Plus solid-state drives

Plextor has announced a new solid-state drive line called M6S Plus, which builds on the M6S SSD line, which was unveiled nearly 2 years ago. The new line houses three models as of now with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB and uses 15 nm Toggle MLC NAND flash memory by Toshiba.

The new M6S Plus SSDs are based on the Marvell 88SS9188 memory controller and have full support for SATA 3.0. The devices are just 6.8 mm thick, which means there should not be any problems when installing them in notebooks and desktop computers. Speed-wise the 128 GB model has 256 MB of cache memory and reads at up to 520 MB/sec and writes at up to 300 MB/sec while offering 88000/75000 IOPS reading/writing. The 256 GB model has 512 MB of cache and reads/writes at 520/420 MB/sec, while reaching 90000/80000 IOPS. The last 512 GB model has 768 MB of cache and reads and writes at 520/440 MB/sec, while reaching 94000/80000 IOPS.

The new SSDs support TRIM, Plextor TrueSpeed, TrueProtect, PlexTurbo and PlexCompressor technologies. The SSDs come with a 3-year warranty but their prices are unknown as of now.
