We’ve already had a little peak at the new Plextor M6e Black Edition, but we’ve gotten more information and photos as well as news about the Plextor M7e SSD. Besides the two new drives, Plextor also announced the next generation of their caching technology we saw on the M6 Pro, the new PlexTurbo 2.0 Intelligent SSD Caching Utility.
The Plextor M6e Black Edition is a professional and superb high-performance PCI Express SSD, specifically designed for creating a perfect gaming platform. It combines cutting-edge high-class components and newly-developed PlexTurbo 2.0 intelligent SSD caching utility, providing optimal durability and performance.
To achieve that it uses the latest duo-core server grade Marvell 88SS9183 controller chip and the highest-class Toggle NAND flash by Toshiba. It also integrates with True Speed Technology to prevent drops in speeds after prolonged use and has read/write speeds of up to 770/625 MB/s in sequential mode, and 105K/100K IOPS for random read/write operations.
The M6e Black Edition is using the AHCI standard to allow for a much wider adoption and compatibility than the newer counterparts and comes with a MTBF of 2.4 million hours and a 5-year warranty. Availability is set to February for the 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacity versions.
“We considered the suggestions of global players when designing the look and added the huge black and red cooling fins to quench the thirst of players looking for an advanced gaming platform. The M6e Black Edition, equipped with PlexTurbo 2.0, meets the experience and visual requirements of players in performance and appearance. The M6e Black Edition is absolutely the ideal choice of creating a dreaming gaming platform!” said Lear Wu, Global Sales Manager for Plextor.
PlexTurbo 2.0 isn’t just a RAM disk or cache to speed things up the conventional way, but rather an intelligent SSD caching utility. It overcomes all the disadvantages of current caching technology with exclusive memory management booster, PlexTurbo 2.0 outruns other caching technologies in performance but also analyzes a huge amount of operation data to avoid unnecessary write operation to significantly reduce write usage of SSD and to prevent memory data loss when the PC crashes or the power goes out.
Plextor also demonstrated the next generation of ultra-fast M.2 PCIe Gen2x4 SSD, the Plextor M7e. With sequential speeds up to 1411MB/s while reading and 1028MB/s while writing, this SSD kicks some serious butt, and that is without the PlexTurbo technology in action.
“We’re excited to showcase the fastest solid state drives this year at CES,” said Lear Wu, Global Sales Manager for Plextor. “Our new offerings continue to keep Plextor at the forefront of the industry.”
