Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.



Both Plextor M.2 6G solid-state drives come with PCI Express 2.0 interface. They are based on Marvell 88SS9188 controller and 19 nm MLC NAND flash-memory with Toggle interface (by Toshiba). The models support TRIM and NCQ technologies as well as DEVSLP power-efficient mode that reduces power consumption to 0.2 mW.


As far as speed characteristics are concerned, M.2 6G accelerate up to 520 Mb/sec on sequential Read operations; sequential Write index depends on the model: 160 Mb/sec for 64 GB model and 210 Mb/sec for 128 GB one. At the same time, random Read/Write operational index (4K blocks) makes up …

Meet the First RAID Controller with Sixteen SATA 6 Gb/sec Ports

Adaptec by PMC introduces the first in the market RAID controller series with the outstanding amount of SAS/SATA 6 Gb/sec ports. Adaptec Series 7 combines low-profile expansion cards developed particularly for PCI Express 3.0 bus. The integrated properties are called to enhance the bandwidth of the bus due to the availability of sixteen SAS/SATA 6 Gb/sec ports.



According to the claimed specifications, these RAID controllers are capable to demonstrate up to 450000 IOPS performance (on random writing (4 KB) conditions) when the number of connected SSDs equals to 16. Such performance showings are currently insuperable by a number of contemporary RAID controllers.


Adaptec Series 7 includes eight models which are differentiated by an amount of external and internal ports. All the models are low-profile expansion cards which are equipped with up to 24 ports. Such technological innovation became possible thanks to the implementation of compact HD mini-SAS sockets and …
