News Release from:
07 August 2012
Plextor has today released details of the forthcoming M5 Pro Series, a new performance line of SSDs due to launch this September across UK and Europe. The M5 Pro has been engineered with prosumers, businesses, and SMEs in mind.
As the first Plextor SSD to incorporate the latest 3rd generation multi-core Marvell 88SS9187 controller, it will handle extremely high loads making it suitable for use in a heavy workstation, server role, or Raid 0 configuration environment.
In line with user needs, the M5 Pro will feature a unique data protection technology within the firmware, as well as the renowned True Speed Technology to prevent the drastic performance drop seen in some SSDs after intense or long-term usage. This combination of firmware, technology and reliability means the M5 Pro will set new performance records, featuring a sustained random read / write speed up to 94,000 / 86,000 IOPS as well as continuous read/write speeds up to 540/450 MB/s.
Expected to retail in capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB, the M5 Pro Series is an extension of the recently announced M5 Series range, and will deliver truly high-performance professional grade SSDs to the market.
Each M5 Pro SSD will be backed by an industry leading five-year warranty alongside Plextor’s extensive international support infrastructure.
The M5 Pro Series is expected to be available in UK and Europe in September 2012. Details on pricing and specifications are to be confirmed.
