Plextor has just unveiled a brand new line of consumer SSDs dubbed M6S Plus, which represents the official successor of the company’s M6S series. These new Solid State Drives come in a 2.5-inch form factor and measure just 7mm in thickness, but you’re probably more interested in finding out about their performance capabilities. Well, the M6S Plus is based on the SATA 6 Gb/s interface, and it boasts random access speeds of up to 90,000 IOPS reads and up to 80,000 IOPS writes. Available in three different size variants such as 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB, all M6S Plus drives feature sequential transfer rates of up to 520 MB/s reads and 300 MB/s, 420 MB/s, and 440 MB/s writes depending on their capacity.
As far as the actual tech is concerned, this new Plextor product includes Toshiba A19 toggle NAND flash memory as well as Marvell 88SS9188 controllers. The drives are compatible with Linux, APPLE Mac OS and Microsoft Windows, and they come with features such as TrueSpeed, TrueProtect, PlexTurbo and PlexCompressor. They are also accompanied by a three-year warranty and boast mean time between failure rates of more than 1,500,000 hours, which is to be expected from a company such as Plextor.
