Product Overview Plextor’s M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 is an ultra-fast SSD, which uses the latest generation of components and a native PCIe interface for extremely high performance. It is suitable for ultra-thin notebooks and motherboards supporting 2280 sized (80.0mm × 22.0mm), PCIe M.2 SSDs. Gamers and high-power users will appreciate the responsiveness and ultra-fast loading times that the powerful M6e M.2 delivers.

By bypassing the 6Gbps limit of the SATA Rev 3.0 interface, Plextor’s M6e M.2 is able to reach maximum sequential read speeds of 770MB/sec and sequential write speeds of 580MB/sec. Its 4K random speeds top out at 105K and random write speeds go up to 100K IOPS. Performance that translates into fast level load, quick boot times, smooth video editing and more.

Giving the M6e M.2 its speed is the combination of a multi-core Marvell PCIe 9183 controller, high quality Toshiba Toggle NAND flash memory , a fast onboard DDR3 DRAM Cache, and Plextor’s own in-house produced custom firmware. Plextor focuses on reliability, undertaking extensive testing at its own state-of-the-art facilities giving the M6e M.2 a calculated MTBF of 2.4 million hours.

Every M6e M.2 drive is individually burned in and tested for absolute stability, and backed by Plextor’s full five-year long-term warranty.

Powerful components, channeled through a fast interface, built by a company known for performance, stability, and quality – the Plextor M6e M.2 takes SSD technology to the next level. It is available in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB capacities. Features Maximum Performance

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster
