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 …

Abee Unveils a Pair of High-End Small-Sized PC Chassis

Abee, a company that earned popularity thanks to its high-end and unusual in design PC cases, is going to launch a pair of new top chassis, codenamed ACubic CP330 and Acubic CP730.

The developer houses its two new products in aluminum cases that are peculiar for their original design, with the combination of black and silver tints on the frontal panel to somehow resemble a chessboard. As it was mentioned above, pricewise, the models are an expensive solution targeting customers with specific requirements. Thus, ACubic CP330 cost approximately $330, while its companion, ACubic CP730, rises up to $365.

Abee ACubic CP330 features 229x249x229 mm dimensions and is intended to accommodate motherboards of mini-ITX form-factor. Its interface panel consists of two standard 3.5 mm audio slots and a …
