Plextor releases M6e solid-state drives

The Japanese company Plextor has released its M6e M.2 SSD line, which we mentioned a few months ago. As the brand name suggests the new SSD line comes in the M.2 form factor and features Toshiba Toggle NAND memory as well as DDR3 memory that serves as cache.

The M6e M.2 line comes with Marvell 88SS9183 memory controllers and capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB; there are 256 MB, 512 MB and 1 GB DDR3 memory cache buffers for each model, respectively. All models offer 770 MB/sec of read speed and 335 MB/sec, 580 MB/sec and 625 MB/sec of write speed, respectively.

The IOPS scores also differ a lot – the 128 GB model will offer 96 000 IOPS when reading and 83 000 IOPS when writing; the 256 GB and 512 GB models will offer 105 000 IOPS when reading and 100 000 IOPS when writing. The drives come with all modern SSD technologies and support TRIM, S.M.A.R.T and NCQ.

Here’s the pricing of the three models – the 128 GB version will sell for USD 135.46, the 256 GB model will cost you USD 219.99, while the most spacious 512 GB version will set you back with USD 437. All drives come with a 5-year warranty.
