Plextor Set to Reveal M6 SSD Prototype at Flash Memory Summit

Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Plextor, leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance digital storage devices, is slated to give a sneak preview of their new M6 SSD at the Flash Memory Summit and Exhibition August 13-15 to be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

The M6 features the next generation of Plextor’s proprietary TrueSpeed technology working in tandem with the Marvell 88SS9187 controller for enhanced performance and reliability. The new drive will also feature the latest generation of A19 Toggle NAND flash from Toshiba and an ultra-slim 5mm casing. Additional product specifications and a formal release date are expected to be announced in the coming months.

In addition to the M6, Plextor will also be displaying its complete lineup of storage solutions. Included are Plextor’s flagship M5 Pro Extreme and M5S series, the critically acclaimed M5M mSATA drive, and their much-anticipated M.2 form-factor drive. The M.2 (formerly New Generation Form Factor or NGFF) is the new industry standard form factor and is slated to replace drives such as the mPCIe, mSATA, and other versions of the blade SSD.

The Flash Memory Summit will also be an opportunity for Plextor to showcase their breakout year in the enterprise and industrial storage space with a wide range of new solid-state solutions and applications. Among the products on display will be enterprise cloud storage solutions, temperature and power-safe storage for automotive applications, embedded eMMC solutions for use in cellphones and tablets, and drives built for industrial device applications, such as POS machines and digital signage.

Prakash Talawar, Plextor Business Development Manager for Enterprise SSD, will also be in a Summit panel discussion addressing the topic—"What Will It Take to Live in a Disk-Free World?" This will be in the OPEN session (303-E) on August 15 at 3:10 to 4:45 p.m.
