Plextor to debut new SSD line soon

One of the big names in the hardware industry when it comes to solid-state and optical drives – namely Plextor – will soon debut a new SSD line that will be known under the M6e M.2 brand name.

As the name of the product suggests the SSD line will come in the M.2 form factor and will be based on the Marvell 88SS9183 memory controller. The drives will come with Toshiba Toggle NAND flash memory and will have fast DDR3 memory as cache.

The line will consist of three drives with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB. As to the DDR3 memory cache it will be 256 MB, 512 MB and 1 GB respectively. Thanks to all these features and tech improvements the M6e M.2 line will reach 770 MB/sec while the write speed will differ – it will be 335 MB/sec, 580 MB/sec and 625 MB/sec for the drives 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.

The Plextor M6e M.2 line will come with a 5-year warranty period but the prices of the models have not been shared just yet.
