Plextor, a leading developer of high-performance digital storage equipment, announces the new M2P Series Solid State Drive with fast random read- and write speeds of 70,000 / 65,000 IOPS and sequential read- and write speeds up to 500 Mb/s and 440 Mb/s. The M2P Series SSD is designed with True Speed technology to deliver the highest level of sustained performance.
Exclusive firmware bolsters stability and performance bringing advanced features including Instant Restore, Global Wear Leveling, and Bad Block Management. These features work together to prevent the performance of your SSD dropping after an extensive use and periods of continuous operation. This is what True Speed is about. SSD manufacturers tend to communicate speeds that reflect compressed data in a simulated benchmark test. In a real world situation the performance levels are much lower, as many forms of data (JPEG images, MP3s, etc.) are already highly compressed. With True Speed Plextor M2P performance will remain close to the promised performance.
In addition to True Speed technology, the M2P Series SSD is powered by the server-grade Marvell 88SS9174 controller chip supporting the latest generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface and the highest-quality Japanese NAND flash from industry leader Toshiba.
|Capacity||Sequential performance (read/write)||Random performance (read/write)|
|128 Gb||Up to 500/320 Mb/s||IOPS 4KB, Up to 70,000 IOPS / 65,000 IOPS|
|256 Gb||Up to 500/440 Mb/s||IOPS 4KB, Up to 70,000 IOPS / 65,000 IOPS|
Plextor’s M2P Series SSDs are not only built for sustained speed; quality and service are also our top priorities. Before leaving the factory, each SSD is subjected to the most stringent tests in the industry. These tests include 22.5 hours of 60 ℃ burn-in test, Ongoing Reliability Test (ORT), and going through the rigors of the industry's highest level FLEXSTAR® testing machine to simulate the real working environment. This ensures that all Plextor SSDs are of the highest quality, as borne out by the 0.59% average annual failure rate (AFR), the lowest in the industry.
Plextor’s goal is to create SSD products that achieve best-in-class performance in realistic tests, SSDs that are efficient in every application, and that run at sustained speeds for their entire lifetime. Plextor’s uncompromising M2P SSDs with True Speed redefines the meaning of speed - a sustained high performance.
The M2P Series SSD is available in 128Gb and 256Gb capacity. Recommended end user prices, including VAT, for the M2P series are:
PX-128M2P, 128Gb, 230 EURO
PX-256M2P, 256Gb, 439 EURO
Plextor offers 3 years of Fast Warranty Service in the EU, Norway, and Switzerland for the M2P series (and 1 year carry-in in other countries).
