A global leading brand of high-performance digital storage devices, Plextor, will announce its new generation of consumer and industrial grade solid state drive (SSD) products during Computex 2016; including the highly anticipated M8Pe series for professional gamers and the unique EX1 portable external SSD.
Introducing the M8Pe for High Speed Gaming
Plextor, with its iconic PCIe SSD product which has won wide recognition in terms of professional gaming standards, will be showcasing its latest M8Pe series during this year’s Computex; it inherits the ultra-fast performance of Plextor’s professional gaming SSDs and features a unique heat sink design. The M8Pe is able to make use of its internal convection to rapidly reduce the SSD’s operating temperature, prevent shortening the SSD’s service life due to overheating. At the same time, the SSD features optimum temperature control in order to maintain the computer’s maximum operating speed. Besides the sleek and large heat sink, the M8Pe is also equipped with dazzling illuminating components, giving it an appearance and performance that will definitely amaze gamers who are into making computer modifications.
The M8Pe is Plextor’s first product that supports the NVMe protocol; it is also the first to adopt the latest generation of PCIe Gen 3 x 4 high-speed interface, capable of achieving unbelievable read/write transmission speeds. With the release of the M6e series at the end of 2013, Plextor was the first to implement the high-speed PCIe interface, earning wide recognition from the gaming industry. The latest M8Pe has been upgraded to third generation PCIE x4 interface, able to provide up to four times the bandwidth, and its read-write efficiency significantly exceeds the previous generation by more than double.
The EX1 will Kickoff the Era of Portable High-speed SSDs
With the increasing performance of computers, requirements for file exchange capacity and data transmission speeds have also become more demanding. To satisfy the latest trend of sharing large image files or even 4K video files, Plextor will be announcing its EX1 portable external SSD during Computex.
The EX1 comes in three different capacities: 128 , 256, and 512 GB, and uses the latest USB3.1 Type-C interface to provide ultra-fast transmission speeds; it is capable of reaching a speed of 500 MB per second and above, which significantly exceeds that of traditional USB slots.
