Plextor will be launching their new series of Solid State drive in next month March 2011. This new series of SSD is reported to be able to speed at 480MB/s when reading and it’s capable of writing at 330MB/s, which is very impressive.
Inside this Plextor M2S series SSD you can find Marvell 88SS9174 controller, 128MB DDR3 cache memory, using MLC NAND Flash chips and it is using SATA 6.0 Gbps interface for maximum transfer speed. The speed record above is the score for 256GB version, while the 128GB and 64GB have a slower speed at 420/210 MB/s and 370/110 MB/s for the reading/writing speed.
What’s better is that the Plextor M2S series SSD is the aluminum chassis for easy heat dissipation. Sadly, we have no idea when it will be available and what’s the pricing for this SSD series.
