Plextor updates product line with M6M SSDs
The US solid-state drive maker Plextor has added a new SSD line to its product list. The new SSDs carry the M6M brand name and come in the mSATA form factor as they are designed to be used in ultrabooks, Intel NUC computers and tablets.
The Plextor M6M SSD line makes use of Toshiba MLC NAND flash memory and includes a Marvell 88SS9188 memory controller with certain optimizations performed by Plextor engineers. The new drives come with capacities of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB and reach 520 MB/sec and 440 MB/sec of read and write speed, respectively. Random read and write scores reach 94 000 and 80 000 IOPS accordingly. In addition the Plextor M6M drives support Plextor’s own True Protect technology and 256-bit AES encryption.
The M6M line can be yours in Q2 2014 when it reaches the market. Pricing was not unveiled though.
