Plextor announced their production of their newest M9PE PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe this week at Computex 2017 in Taipei, Taiwan. The M9Pe is based on the Marvell 88SS1093 controller, code named Eldora, and Toshiba’ newest 512gb BiCS 3D TLC 64 layer memory.
Available in either M.2 or PCIe add-in card, the M9Pe will be equipped with a heatsink as it is capable of speeds up to 3.1GB/s read and 2.3GB/s write. It will also be LED equipped and its feature set includes low density parity check (LDPC), the industries latest algorithm to combat data loss and increase product endurance.
Also on deck for Plextor is their release announcement of the M8Se PCIe NVMe SSD which will be available (as is the M9Pe) in capacities from 128GB to 1TB initially, with the possibility of that 2TB jump down the road.
Although still based on the 88SS1093 controller, this PCIe 3.0 X4 NVMe SSD has a bit lower performance specs with read data transfer speeds of 2.4GB/s read, 1GB/s write and 210,000 IOPS. This SSD, as well is based in M.2 alone or add-in card as well.
