Plextor Expands M6e Range with M.2 Form Factor SSD

Fremont, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2014

Plextor (http://www.plextor.com), a leading developer of high performance digital storage technology, launches the M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 SSD, an ultra-fast 2280 (80.0mm × 22.0mm), M.2 PCIe form factor SSD designed to deliver high performance storage to modern gaming notebooks and the new generation of M.2-compatible motherboards.

The M6e M.2 PCIe is the drive at the heart of Plextors multi-award winning PCIe gaming SSD. With its release as a stand-alone product, consumers with M.2 PCIe slots gain access to an ultra-fast SSD with maximum sequential read speeds of 770 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of 625MB/sec. Random 4k read speeds reach 105K, and random write speeds attain 100K, IOPS. The M6e range gives gamers RAID-like performance without the space requirements or inconvenience of setting up a RAID array.

Packed into the light, extremely compact M6e M.2 PCIe is a multi-core Marvell PCIe 9183 controller, a fast onboard DDR DRAM cache, and high quality Toshiba Toggle NAND flash memory, with Plextors own in-house produced custom firmware providing stability and efficiency.


The M6e M.2s high performance means that it is able to maximize the notebook gaming experience by reducing game starting times and keeping level loading times to a minimum. With the release of Intels new chipset, a greater number of motherboards will have PCIe M.2 slots. Installing a Plextor M6e M.2 in this slot provides users with a tidy, ultra-fast storage option that bypasses the 6Gbps limit of the SATA Rev 3.0 interface and takes up minimal valuable case space.

Along with the M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 SSD, Plextor will also launch three M.2 SATA SSDs: the M6G 2280 (80.0mm × 22.0mm), M6G 2260 (60.0mm × 22.0mm) and M6G 2242 (42.0mm × 22.0mm). This range of M.2 options allows users to experience the performance and high reliability of Plextor SSDs. This range of M.2 options allows users with both PCIe and SATA M.2 slots to experience the performance and high reliability of Plextor SSDs.

A full 5-year, long-term warranty, Plextor's Zero-Failure Zero-Error mass testing standard resulting in a MTBF calculated at 2.4 million hours, and extensive testing/burning-in of every individual unit ensures total reliability and stability. This means that players can focus on the game, knowing that the M6e M.2 PCIe will continue to deliver the performance they need.

With the launch of the M6e M.2 PCIe we are expanding on the unprecedented success of the existing M6e HHHL PCIe. Now users of the fastest gaming notebooks and high power workstations will get access to the incredible performance of the M6e, and gain the benefits that only an ultra-fast, highly optimized Plextor M6e SSD can offer, said Senior Sales Manager, Lear Wu.

Launching in May 2014, the M6e M.2 will be available in 128G, 256G, and 512G capacities.
