Plextor M6 PRO SSD with PlexTurbo Caching Layer Technology Preview

By: Chris Ramseyer | SSDs in Storage | Posted: Aug 25, 2014 2:10 pm

Desktop Test System





Lenovo W530 - Mobile Workstation



We used a couple of different test systems for this preview. With the Plextor M6 PRO 256GB as a secondary drive, we used one of Jon's test systems. These tests were ran at Flash Memory Summit. We also used a Lenovo W530 to test with the Plextor M6 PRO as the primary (boot) storage device. The PlexTurbo software will only work on the C drive at this time.



ATTO Baseline Performance


Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34


ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.




In ATTO, we measured the sequential read performance at just over 552 MB/s with the M6 PRO. The sequential write speed surpassed 506 MB/s. Again, this is with early firmware and performance should increase before the final roll out.
