First-rate components, profession heat sink design, coupled with LDPC correction technology, the M8Pe is capable of providing the most stable long-term performance. By satisfying the most stringent professional gaming requirements, the M8Pe offers unparalleled performance in terms of access speeds, creating the smoothest experience for gamers.
PLEXTOR M8Pe SSD
The PLEXTOR M8Pe series recreates the highest standard for professional gaming grade SSDs. With NVMe, the M8Pe significantly reduces access latency to provide faster data transmission speeds. Combined with the new generation of PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface, the M8Pe can provide breakthrough performances with continuous sequential read/write speeds of 2500/1400 MB/s, and random read/write speeds of 280,000/240,000 IOPS. This allows players to easily satisfy complicated data access requirements of the latest games.
In order to provide the most reliable data read/write accuracy, the PLEXTOR M8Pe is incorporated with the latest LDPC correction technology that uses more advanced error correction capabilities. M8Pe’s system stability is also another important point of emphasis during product design. Equipped with the latest professional gaming grade high efficiency heat sinks, the M8PE is able to use air flow within its own chassis for rapid heat dissipation, preventing its components from overheating thereby extending the SSD’s optimum operation effectiveness and service life.
PLEXTOR SSDs always use top quality components made by renowned manufacturers in the industry. The PLEXTOR M8Pe is equipped with Marvell’s latest controller chip, Toshiba’s 15 nm MLC NAND Flash memory and PLEXTOR exclusive firmware technologies to satisfy user demands for read/write speeds, performance, stability, and long-term service life.
PLEXTOR’s Senior Director Shu-Qing Li states, “Gamers have always had the strictest requirements on system specifications, not to mention that the latest games are pursuing extreme video and audio effects which pose a great challenge on the processing capabilities of computers. As a result, PLEXTOR has designed a series of SSD products aimed exclusively for gaming use. All of them are equipped with the most advanced high speed interface specifications while also supporting the industry’s latest standards/protocols. The new M8Pe NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 interface enables the SSD to help optimize the system, allowing maximum computation power. For enthusiasts and advanced gamers alike, through M8Pe’s professional gaming capabilities, everyone will be able to enjoy games like never before.”
