Plextor Launches The M2P Series SSDs With True Speed

Plextor today announced 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.

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, according to the company.

The M2P Series SSD is powered by the Marvell 88SS9174 controller chip supporting the latest generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface and the Japanese NAND flash from Toshiba.

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).

128 Gb - Up to 500/320 Mb/s seq read/write, IOPS 4KB, Up to 70,000 IOPS / 65,000 IOPS Random performance read/write

256 Gb - Up to 500/440 Mb/s seq read/write, IOPS 4KB, Up to 70,000 IOPS / 65,000 IOPS Random performance read/write
