Plextor launches the M5 Pro Series SSD

Plextor logo

Plextor's existing SSDs - the M3 Pro and M5S - are based on Marvell's 88SS9174 controller. Plextor's M5 Pro is the first SSD to publicly use Marvell's new 88SS9187 controller.

Not only is Plextor using a brand new controller, the M5 Pro is also the first consumer SSD to use Toshiba's 19nm Toggle-Mode MLC NAND.

According to Plextor, the SSD provides an enterprise-grade double-data protection featuring random read/write speeds of up to 94,000/86,000 IOPS and sequential read/write speeds of up to 540/450 MB/s.

The M5 Pro also makes use of True Speed Technology to prevent the drastic performance drop seen in some SSDs after intense or long-term usage.

The M5 Pro offers an enterprise-grade double-data protection technology. Using the latest 128-bit error correction system built into the latest Marvell controller, the M5 Pro is able to automatically check and correct the accuracy of data being read from the flash memory. This is complemented by a second layer of read protection offered by the data hold-out algorithm in Plextor's exclusive firmware, thus allowing the drive to achieve total data accuracy even in the long-term. When data confidentiality is required, the drive uses hardware in the US Government AES-validated Marvell controller to provide secure 256-bit full-drive encryption.

Each M5 Pro SSD is backed by afive-year warranty and Plextor's international support infrastructure. The Plextor M5 Pro will be available in 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities mid-August 2012.
