If you are in the hunt for a Solid State Drive, Plextor will be releasing its new PCIe-based NVMe-compliant series of SSDs called the M8Se. These new SSDs will support the ultra-fast PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and will employ the use of a Marvell controller along with high-performance Toshiba TLC NAND.
According to the Plextor press release, the SSD’s will have a sequential read and write access speeds of up to 2,450MB/s and 1,000 MB/s respectively, and random read and write speeds of up to 210,000 IOPS and 175,000 IOPS respectively.
The M8Se will be available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB capacities and come in a variety of form factors too. The M8SeY comes in the form of a PCIe add-in card; the M8SeG in a M.2 2280 stick with a heat shield; and finally, the M8SeGN also comes in a M.2 2280 stick, but without a heat shield.
The Plextor M8Se will be available sometime in June. Prices have yet to be confirmed but we will update this post once we have confirmed pricing and availability details.
