Plextor had a fairly good showing this week at FMS 2013 and did provide a sample of their upcoming M6 SSD for display. Unfortunately it was in a simple brushed aluminum casing , void of any branding. Rather unique however, was seeing how thin notebook form factors SSDs are becoming, this sample being only 5mm thin.
The highlight of this, and many other SSDs as we are seeing, is that it contains the highly touted Toshiba A19 NAND flash memory which is claiming to be the smallest and fastest performing mlc available. Unfortunately, Plextor still doesn’t have specifications set for the PX-M6 as they are still fine tuning firmware.
Also on display were Plextor’s m.2 SSD designs with the PX-G5Be capable of amazing 740MB/s read and 640MB/s write performance and over 106k IOPS. The SATA version of that will reach 530MB/s read and 410MB/s write transfer speeds with 79k IOPS.
