CES 2017 - Plextor's new high-end memory fleet consists of some interesting solutions that will be armed with 3D NAND flash memory to ensure reliability, fast speeds across all protocols, and improved capacities.
Among Plextor's new SSDs, the M8Se Series is the most eye-catching. The M8Se SSD Series now has a blazing fast contender that taps the NVMe PCIe Gen 3x 4 M.2 protocol to deliver amazing transfers of up to 2.45GB/sec reads and 1GB/sec writes, with IOPS up to 210,000 read and 175,000 writes.
The M8Se Series leverages Toshiba's 15nm Super High Performance TLC NAND flash memory to expand capacities up to 1TB, with a 1.5 million MTBF rating and an onboard Marvell 88ss1093 memory controller for optimum reliability. This series comes in both HHHL and M.2 form factors.
Plextor also showcased a rather interesting external SSD called the EX1 Series. The EX1's shock-resistant case is incredibly lightweight and ultra-slim for optimum portability, and leverages high-end flash memory across USB Type-C to deliver 550MB/sec reads and 500MB/sec write speeds.
The EX1 Series comes in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities and has a wide array of uses from expanding PC memory, console memory, and even supports OTG capability with Android devices. The EX1 has a 5-year warranty and a MTBF rating of 1.5 million hours.
