Digital storage technology company Plextor recently unveiled its new M6e PCIe SSD drive meant to address the rising demands of gamers for speed performance, reliability, and compatibility.
Manufactured in Japan, the M6e PCIe SSD uses high-bandwidth components to deliver uninterrupted gameplay. It combines the driver-free ACHI support with the compatibility of selectable legacy BIOS or fast UEFI boot. It is also optimized for gaming applications.
The M6e comes in 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities.
“Modern games push systems to their limits, by getting data from storage to the graphics card and into RAM fast, even under heavy load, the M6e makes the gameplay experience smoother and better. We’ve also optimized the M6e to perform smoothly with a large variety of games so it’s suitable for use by all types of players,” said M6e Product Manager Zhang Yaping.
Plextor has placed a full five-year warranty on M6e based on its product test results and quality control.
Plextor’s Zero-Failure Zero-Error mass testing standard on M6e resulted to an MTBF (mean time between failures) of 2.4 million calculated hours.
For stability issues, every individual SSD faces an extended high-temperature burn-in test and usage simulation.
The Plextor M6e delivers maximum sequential read/write speeds of 770/625 MB/s and random read/write speeds of 105K/100K IOPS.
The PCIe Gen2x2 interface bypasses the SATAIII bottleneck, includes the latest server-grade multicore Marvell 88SS9183 controller with native PCI 2.0 support, and a pre-graded high performance Toshiba Toggle NAND flash.
And with the Advanced Host Controller Interface (ACHI) support, Plextor M6e promises high-performing PCIe SSD without the need to load propriety drivers.
Compatibility with legacy BIOSes allows the M6e to be used with existing gaming rigs for flexibility. Alternatively selecting the UEFI boot mode for motherboards with UEFI provides fast start-up times.
