Plextor M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 SSD Unleashed – See Features and Specifications

Plextor will be releasing a M.2 form factor of their M6e PCIE SSD lineup, compatible with Z97 and H97 motherboards that features an M.2 NGFF SSD port. Basically, the Plextor M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 SSD is similar to the Plextor M6e PCIE SSD that I reviewed a couple of days ago, just without the PCIE daughter board/adapter. According to Plextor, the M6e M.2 PCIE SSD is an ultra-fast 2280 (80.0 mm × 22.0 mm), M.2 PCIe form factor SSD designed to deliver high performance storage to modern gaming notebooks and the new generation of M.2-compatible motherboards. Check out the rest of its features and specifications below.

Plextor M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 SSD Features

The Plextor M6e M.2 PCIe is the drive at the heart of Plextor’s multi-award winning PCIe gaming SSD. With its release as a stand-alone product, consumers with M.2 PCIe slots gain access to an ultra-fast SSD with maximum sequential read speeds of 770 MB/sec and sequential write speeds of 625 MB/sec. Random 4k read speeds reach 105K, and random write speeds attain 100K, IOPS. The M6e range gives gamers RAID-like performance without the space requirements or inconvenience of setting up a RAID array.

Packed into the light, extremely compact M6e M.2 PCIe is a multi-core Marvell PCIe 9183 controller, a fast onboard DDR DRAM cache, and high quality Toshiba Toggle NAND flash memory, with Plextor’s own in-house produced custom firmware providing stability and efficiency.

The Plextor M6e M.2’s high performance means that it is able to maximize the notebook gaming experience by reducing game starting times and keeping level loading times to a minimum. With the release of Intel’s new chipset, a greater number of motherboards will have PCIe M.2 slots. Installing a Plextor M6e M.2 in this slot provides users with a tidy, ultra-fast storage option that bypasses the 6 Gbps limit of the SATA Rev 3.0 interface and takes up minimal valuable case space.

Along with the M6e M.2 PCIe Gen2 x2 SSD, Plextor will also launch three M.2 SATA SSDs: the M6G 2280 (80.0 mm × 22.0 mm), M6G 2260 (60.0 mm × 22.0 mm) and M6G 2242 (42.0 mm × 22.0 mm). This range of M.2 options allows users to experience the performance and high reliability of Plextor SSDs. This range of M.2 options allows users with both PCIe and SATA M.2 slots to experience the performance and high reliability of Plextor SSDs.

A full 5-year, long-term warranty, Plextor’s Zero-Failure Zero-Error mass testing standard resulting in a MTBF calculated at 2.4 million hours, and extensive testing/burning-in of every individual unit ensures total reliability and stability. This means that players can focus on the game, knowing that the M6e M.2 PCIe will continue to deliver the performance they need.

According to Senior Sales Manager, Lear Wu: “With the launch of the Plextor M6e M.2 PCIe we are expanding on the unprecedented success of the existing M6e HHHL PCIe. Now users of the fastest gaming notebooks and high power workstations will get access to the incredible performance of the M6e, and gain the benefits that only an ultra-fast, highly optimized Plextor M6e SSD can offer,”
