Plextor presents high-performance M6S SSDs

Although the Japanese storage device maker Plextor presented a new SSD family – the M6M – a few days ago, the company has now released the M6S family of SSDs that will be Plextor’s offer in the high-performance SSD market segment.

The M6S line comes in the well-known 2.5-inch form factor and all SSDs that belong to the line are just 7 mm thick. As expected from any modern SSD, they come with support for the latest SATA 3.0 standard and feature the Marvell 88SS9188 memory controller as well as 19 nm NAND flash memory made by Toshiba.

Users will be able to choose among three models with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB. All of them come with the power-saving DEVSLP mode and need just 2 mW of power when they enter it. The fastest one of them all is the 512 GB model – it features 520 MB/sec of read speed and 440 MB/sec of write speed. The 256 GB and 128 GB SSDs offer lower speed – you get a sequential read speed of 420 MB/sec and write speed of 300 MB/sec. Performance numbers are as follows – 512 GB model, 94 000 and 80 000 IOPS of read and write speed; 256 GB model – 90 000 and 80 000 IOPS of read and write speed and 128 GB model – 88 000 and 75 000 IOPS of read and write speed.

The pricing of the new M6S SSDs is still unknown.
