Plextor Displays New M6 SSD along with M.2/NGFF and PCIe SSDs – Flash Memory Summit 2013 Update

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.

    Now we need to start seeing pci-e adapters so we can use the m.2s in our desktop pcs. Laptops can’t have ALL the fun…lol

    Would be fun to see a desktop PCIe v3 x8 card with two of these in RAID0.
