Fremont, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Plextor, leading developer of digital storage technology, has launched its new M6 PRO SATA SSD. The M6 PRO combines fast and stable Plextor hardware with intelligent RAM caching utility called PlexTurbo. First previewed at Computex 2014, the M6 PRO with PlexTurbo set a new standard for SATA SSDs.
PlexTurbo is intelligent utility that uses some of the system RAM as an ultra-smart RAM cache, bypassing limitations of the 6 Gb/s SATA III channel and delivering additional speed for real-world applications. In addition to outperforming competing technology, PlexTurbo minimizes RAM usage, uses active data comparisons to prevent unnecessary writes, and prevents RAM cache data loss if power is interrupted.
The M6 PRO’s hardware uses a new generation of A19 nm Toshiba toggle NAND flash and a multi-core Marvell controller with Plextor’s in-house developed firmware. The M6 PRO has a new ultra-low-power and fast-resume DEVSLP mode that gives longer battery life to notebooks and reduces wasted power in desktop systems while retaining responsiveness. The M6 PRO features the latest version of Plextor’s acclaimed long-term performance-sustaining True Speed technology. Also included is Plextor's True Protect system, with multilayer data integrity and security provided by 256-bit AES full-drive encryption.
It's Plextor's philosophy that all products featuring new technology and outstanding speed must have equally outstanding reliability. True to form, the M6 PRO is the first SSD to survive Plextor’s new ultra-strict, enterprise-grade, zero error testing. Taking place at the company’s own state-of-the-art testing facility, 400 units were subjected to 1008 hours (up from 500 hours) of extreme tests without error or failure. This 100% individual unit testing validated the M6 PRO's unparalleled reliability. Typically, Plextor SSDs also have a MTBF (mean time between failures) of 2.4 million hours, which is the highest reliability ranking in the industry, matched by a full 5-year Plextor warranty.
“To build the M6 PRO, we looked at how storage was used by gamers, creative professionals, and advanced system users, then we knew we had to implement RAM caching as well as deliver on the hardware. Because we started PlexTurbo development from scratch, we’ve been able to optimize it to perform to the maximum with our exact hardware combination and to address the issues that users have experienced with other RAM caching software. The M6 PRO with PlexTurbo not only raises the bar in terms of real-world performance, it also sets new standards for stability, data loss protection and memory usage,” said Sales & Marketing Manager Lear Wu.
The Plextor M6 PRO SSD with PlexTurbo will be available August 2014 in 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1TB capacity.
