Meet a Pair of High-Efficiency M6 and M.2 SSDs from Plextor

Plextor, an established data storage manufacturer from Japan, announces the release of two new solid-state drive series – the M6 and the M.2. Both new-comers are marked by some outstanding efficiency facilities and completely new design. The M6 SSDs are developed in 2.5-inch design but are housed in ultrathin aluminum cases of 5 mm depth only. They are based on Marvell 88SS9187 controller and MLC NAND flash-memory of Toggle type (19 nm technological process).



The M6 drives feature high-speed SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface and support Plextor TrueSpeed technology. It should be noted that these SSDs are thought to support up to 1 GB RAM – DDR2-800 or DDR3-800 — used as cache. With the attempt to satisfy the needs of diverse customer audiences, Plextor is going to release the M6 modifications: M6 Pro models for high-performance tasks and M6S for ordinary users.


To continue, the M.2 solid-state drives are designed in a totally new NGFF form-factor (New Generation Form …

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Card Has Much In Common With Titan X, but Holds More Elements

Several days ago Nvidia has introduced its most effective consumer graphics card, namely GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. It is GP102 GPU based and holds 3,584 CUDAs. This device resembles the Titan X sample. Its graphics engine is the same, however, the number of ROP units (96) is higher, the memory bus (384 bits) is wider, the memory volume (12 GB) is bigger, frequencies are higher, and the price is much lower!



As it turned out, GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is produced with a PC-board of its high-end counterpart, but there are differences in electronic components. Thus, the power subsystem has been refined due to the duplicated quantity of MOSFET transistors. Now it is possible to overclock the adapter to higher frequencies. GTX 1080 Ti has got nine extra solid capacitors. The absence of a DVI port provides more vents on the back panel.


In general, for public users this product almost copies the more expensive Titan X model and at the same time can be more productive in games.

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 …
