Plextor Set to Showcase New M6 Pro SSD with PlexTurbo at Flash Memory Summit

Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Plextor, a leading developer of high performance storage devices, will be attending the Flash Memory Summit, August 5-7, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. Plextor will be showcasing their complete M6 line-up featuring the M6 Pro SSD with PlexTurbo.

PlexTurbo technology—Plextor’s exclusive intelligent SSD caching—can boost the M6 Pro far beyond SATA interface’s best bandwidth of 6Gb/s to reach speeds unmatched by any other SATA SSD. Expect amazing read and write speeds during the live demonstrations. In addition to boost in performance, PlexTurbo can also increase flash life for an unmatched feature set.

Plextor's performance standards insist that outstanding speed be accompanied by equally outstanding reliability. The Plextor M6 Pro is the first consumer SSD from Plextor to pass its new ultra-strict enterprise-grade design standard, requiring hundreds of test units to survive over a 1000 hours (up from 500 hours) of function tests. Plextor SSDs typically have a MTBF (mean time between failures) of 2.4 million hours—the highest reliability ranking in the industry. Plextor SSDs are manufactured with the industry's leading aging process to weed out weak flash memory. Furthermore, the Plextor M6 Pro carries a full 5-year warranty for added peace of mind.

Plextor's Summit exhibit will also feature the ultra-fast M6e in both HHHL and standard M.2 board formats that is ideal for extreme users and gamers. The M6e in both form factors is already a multi-award winner, surpassing limitations of SATA with sequential read speeds in the 710-720 MB/s range and sequential writes around 577 MB/s.

The availability of two formats gives gamers the option of using the M6e with an existing desktop machine using an HHHL form factor with PCIe slots on the motherboard or a M.2 form factor with the new generation motherboards that have a native M.2 slot with PCIe interface support.

Along with the high-performance M6 Pro with PlexTurbo and the ultrafast M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 SSD, Plextor will showcase a series of M.2 SATA interface SSDs that include the M6G-2280, M6G-2260, and M6G-2242 form factors. On the stand will be the entry level Plextor M6S and M6M.

“We’re really looking forward to showing our new products at the FMS show this year. Plextor is proud to announce the M6 Pro with PlexTurbo which is a major SSD enhancement. We've got excellent product offerings for every segment of the consumer market as well as advanced products that meet the specific needs of enterprise and IPC markets,” said Darlo Perez, Managing Director.

Plextor welcomes interested parties to their booth #916: Hall A-B; Wednesday, August 6th, 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm and Thursday, August 7th, 12:00 pm – 2:00 PM at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
